What is the age to start flute lesson?

– It’s great to start learning music at an early age, but parents must make sure students are both physically and academically ready to begin studying the flute.

– The most important factor to decide whether a kid can start playing flute, is the size of the palm and arm. In order to facilitate playing all the keys of flute.

– As a wind instrument, it is also important that the student has a developed lung capacity to play. The youngest age for asian to start usually begin around 7-9 years old.

– Younger students can use a curve head joint to reduce the length of the flute, while not affecting the overall sound quality or technique. But I would suggest to just wait for another 1-2 years for them to grow and able to support holding a regular flute. Because you won’t need the curve head joint anymore in your lifetime flute playing journey when you grown up.

****Lessons are specially design for different age group.****

-Unlike the guitar or piano, playing the flute is less intuitive and therefore it is not an instrument that can easily be self-taught. You need someone to give you direct feedback and to avoid development of bad habits. It is way more challenging to change a bad habit than learning a new technique.
