Learning to play the flute means learning to read the notes on the treble clef.

PMT Flute picFrom a music theory view it is easy to transfer your knowledge from a recorder to the flute. The main difference is the fingering as well as blowing across the mouthpiece from a sideways angle!

The hardest part about learning to play the flute is getting the sound which is best practiced solely from the head joint. Once you have the sound, then the flute can be assembled and you can start to learn the notes on the flute. It’s always best to learn some tone exercises in the early stages, which will help to develop your flute sound and strengthen your breathing too.

In a short space of time and with regular practice you can be playing tunes you will recognize and gain experience if you want to join your school orchestra.
