Flute Basics

Flute Basics Course Synopsis: This course is aimed at the absolute beginner flute player. It begins with a series of six lessons then progresses through to the twenty three main subscription lessons. Learn how to hold the instrument with proper hand, lip and finger posture will be demonstrated and explained in the first of the six lessons, along with the scales of D and G. Other basic fundamentals that Steph will address include: how to create space in a tune to breath, breath technique, articulation, ornamentation, flute maintenance and how to gain clarity of tone in both the high and low register. Throughout the course she progressively refers to and teases out many of the issues that give so many flute players difficulties. The ‘Flute Basics’ course will equip the beginner flautist with the necessary rudiments to begin a journey down the long and adventurous road of Irish flute playing. By the end of this beginner’s course, you will have a repertoire of twenty four Irish tunes that sit very well on the flute, the knowledge of how to play with good tone and rhythm with basic ornamentation and a deeper understanding of the Irish music tradition. The course has 29 lessons—making it our biggest course on OAIM—broken into 3 to 4 tutorials each, where tunes are taught phrase by phrase.
