Lesson Studio

Welcome to the HBF studio! I’m excited to see you’re interested in online flute lessons.

Taking online flute lessons is a great way to improve your playing. You don’t have to be the next James Galway to make the most of music lessons.

Whether you want to play for fun or major in music, whether you or your child wants to learn, I’ll do what I can to help.

I offer live half-hour and hour online flute lessons as well as lessons on piccolo, alto flute, and fife. For all musicians, I also teach music theory lessons and offer special performance checks!

Now, who am I to be offering this? I’m Hannah, and I have a Bachelor of Music in flute performance and am currently pursuing my Master of Music, also in flute.

I have been teaching by way of this blog since 2013, and I started working with students directly in 2015. In 2019, I started teaching one-on-one lessons.

Why do you teach online flute lessons?

In this busy world of ours, it can be hard to fit in everything. Students today have more homework and activities than ever, and travel time can cut into a student’s time.

Music lessons are an essential part of a student’s growth, especially if they participate in band or orchestra. Even adults can benefit from online flute lessons.

I want to make learning flute and music easier for everyone. I’ve found that teaching online lessons allows me and the student to work from anywhere.

I’m able to teach more people, and more students (young and old) are able to learn.

Also, online flute lessons can continue despite inclement weather, travel, and other potential conflicts.

If a student has to miss a lesson, we can turn that into a performance check. At no extra charge, I will review a recording in place of a live lesson.

When do you teach?

I work directly with students and parents to schedule lessons that work for both parties. Online flute lessons typically occur in the afternoon during the week or in the middle of the day on weekends.

Live online lessons must be scheduled for one month at a time except for trial lessons. If recurring lessons begin later in the month, the following month will be an exception.

Performance checks may be scheduled individually as needed or on an ongoing basis.

Who can take online flute lessons?

Students aged 10 and older may take lessons on flute. After a solid foundation on flute, students may add piccolo or alto flute.

Younger students may start on the Yamaha fife before progressing to the flute. However, younger students will need to have a parent or guardian present during live lessons.

Who should take live lessons?

  • flute students looking for one-on-one attention
  • flute students who need the direct feedback in the moment
  • students who can stay focused for half an hour to an hour

Who should choose performance checks?

  • students who don’t have the time, attention, or availability for live lessons
  • students preparing for an audition or competition
  • non-flutists who want to work with me

How will all this work?

Live lessons will be conducted via video chat, through a program like FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts.

If you want a performance check, you’ll send me a recording via email, and I will respond with feedback.

How much do you charge?

Lessons are charged per month, and they start at $76. Performance checks start at $20 for a single recording.
