About Me

Are you a flute player struggling to find exciting music that you look forward to learning?

Do you have a busy schedule that makes taking private flute lessons nearly impossible?

I’ve been there.

When I started playing the flute, I was already playing the saxophone and piano. So I didn’t have enough time to take weekly flute lessons to improve my skills.

While I had the occasional flute lesson, I was all alone.

I had to basically teach myself with sheet music and digital resources.

It was tough, but it made me the flutist I am today.

Private lessons aren’t accessible to everyone. Whether you have a tight budget or a full schedule, it can seem like you can’t get better on the flute.

But you don’t need to give up time with your family, friends, or yourself just to play the flute.

All you need is the desire to improve. And the right resources, of course.

That’s why I started a blog and a growing library of digital sheet music and downloads for flutists just like you.

You shouldn’t have to struggle to learn and improve on the flute. Or piccolo. Or alto flute.

Hi, I’m Hannah Haefele (rhymes with safely)!

I use my personal experience of learning to play the flute without a ton of guidance to help others do the same. This involves digital sheet music, guides, and courses other downloads.

Sure, getting two degrees in flute performance helped. But I’m using what I learned in school to help you no matter your experience or goals with music.

If you’re looking to learn more advanced repertoire and enjoy playing the flute, you’ve come to the right place.
