Time to transform your tone

Flute tone is probably the most important aspect of flute playing. Without a beautiful tone, you could have the fastest fingers and play the most complicated pieces, but no one would want to listen to you! Yet it is also one of the most challenging areas of flute playing. How do you get your tone to sound less airy? Why are you struggling to get clean high notes? Why do I sound so screechy? What is up with the low register? This course takes you through a guided process that helps you break down tone into its various components and practice them so that they are not overwhelming. We do this with a good sense of humor, curiosity, and playfulness. Become empowered to start developing your own tone and unique musical voice.

Who is this course good for?

Most players wanting to improve their tone will benefit from this course, however, this course is best suited for anyone who is...

  • A beginner

    Are you learning to make a sound on the flute for the first time? This course will be helpful for you as we go through the fundamentals of flute tone.

  • Re-learning the flute

    This course is EXCELLENT for anyone who is coming back to the flute after many years of not playing. It is designed to help you avoid the tone mistakes that so many make when they return after 20, 30 or even 40 years away from it.

  • Hitting a wall

    Perhaps you have been playing (or playing again) for a while but you seem to have hit a wall with your tone. It just does not seem to want to get better no matter what you do.
