Learning the flute should bring you joy and yet you feel discouraged...

After all, you are playing the flute because you love it,  and perhaps you remember how it once made you feel.

Now...your fingers feel stuck, your tone is not nearly where you imagined it would be and you are incredibly frustrated. 

You may even be wondering if you should just give up.

Take a deep breath. The good news is, that you are not alone! 


I have seen so many students struggle in this area...

And through my work with them, I have discovered a concept and approach to playing that has helped them transform their practice and playing. 


Here's the secret, you need to learn to LET GO!

This simple truth can transform your playing. To play the flute well, you need to learn to stop trying so hard to "get it right", and rather allow yourself to explore and play with the possibilities. 

The attitude of trying hard usually only produces more tension and reinforces old bad habits. This may sound airy-fairy to you but it really doesn't have to be at all.  

Hi, I'm Tatiana

I am deeply passionate about helping people from all over the world learn the flute and grow their love for this beautiful instrument.

As a performer, teacher, and serial problem solver, I love helping students find creative ways to overcome their challenges. And I usually do this with a good dose of laughter. Because here at The Flute Practice, we believe that high-quality learning can also be lots of fun.

Ready to start Letting Go?

'Letting Go' is a 6-week online video course designed to help you transform your playing and practice.

Sign up now and get instant access to a journey that will change the way you approach your flute playing and practice.

Each week we systematically tackle an aspect of playing the flute:

Week 1: Letting go of your attitude. 

Week 2: Letting go of tension

Week 3: Letting go of your fingers

Week4: Letting go in breathing and support

Week 5 & 6: Letting go of your tone


But...this is a little different than your usual flute course...

We approach each of these topics with a playful, explorative attitude, allowing you to let go of preconceived ideas of what playing 'should be' and discover what it is really about.  This is more than just a course showing you what to practice, we are looking at re-wiring how you practice too. 

Signing up for this course gives you instant access to:

  • 6 video lessons that you can do anytime and at your own pace.

  • Weekly challenges that are easy to implement, highly practical and lots of fun. No wishy-washy stuff here!

  • Additional practice resources and videos to help take the learning process a whole lot deeper

  • Access to the amazing Flute Practice Club community where you can stay connected, ask questions and share your challenges.

  • Lifetime access to the course and its contents, so you can do it more than once!

After doing this course you will have...

  • Better tone

    That gorgeous, open, singing sound you really want is almost always being held back by tension. Most of our community members that have done this course, tell us how much their tone improves by the end of it!

  • Less tension

    Imagine playing your flute with ease in your body, released and fluid fingers, and a gorgeous singing sound. I definitely cannot promise you that you will have this after doing this course, but you will be on the road towards achieving this.

  • New approach to your playing

    Start approaching each practice session with a sense of curiosity, joy, excitement, and openness to learn. This is more than just a few useful exercises. I aim to give your attitude a makeover so that you play and practice with new confidence.

Amazing journey!

H. Degange

"This has been an amazing journey to become aware of physical tension, restricting attitudes and how to let go of it. It has made me a lot more free to explore and create a beautiful tone. I have learned so much and I am so much more physically relaxed now when I play."

You are guaranteed to improve

Dita

Tatiana has such a clear way of explaining all aspects of flute playing and she does it with such flair, patience and with a wonderful sense of humour. The Letting Go Workshop touches on so many things: self acceptance, how to deal with tension, posture and hand position, breathing & support and last but not least tone. Her video's and handouts are fantastic. You are guaranteed to improve and enjoy playing the flute even more than before you started this workshop. I give it 5 stars!!

Develop awareness and release tension

Emma

"This course really helped me to develop an awareness of where tension is creeping into my playing, how the tension affects my playing and what to do about it. Tatiana is extremely knowledgeable, but also able to explain things in a very down-to-earth, easy-to-understand way. "

Help me see the importance of the process, not just the end result

Melina G.

"This course really helped me to make my attention to my playing more mindful and less anxious, and it gave me a wealth of tools for self-examination and experimentation that I know I'll be going back to again and again. It's really helped me to see the importance of the process, not just the end result."

Here's what our community members gained from the course:

This course covered exactly what we needed to kickstart the process.

RLA

"There is a huge community of older folks picking up their flutes for the first time in decades, this course covered exactly what we needed to kickstart the process without re-introducing the bad habits (mental and physical)."

I highly recommend the Letting Go Workshop to flutists of all levels.

Cherie R

"The "Letting Go" workshop was the best 6-week journey in understanding the what, why, and how of becoming a better flutist. There are several elements that make this workshop raise the bar of workshop standards and expectations. In the past, if I learned one or two new concepts during a course, I considered it a win. The Letting Go workshop explores concepts we have all heard many times, "How to hold the flute", "Release Tension", Breath and Support", "Tone" and others, but it is the varied formats and wealth of material provided that make this workshop different. Each topic contains a New Video with an easy-to-follow presentation. There are references provided for music to play and other related videos to watch. Also, you are not alone in your journey. Doing this workshop alone would be beneficial however doing it with a group was so much fun. Learning from others experiencing the same or different problems encourages openness and leaves you refreshed and anticipating the next lesson. I highly recommend the Letting Go Workshop to flutists of all levels."

It has made a difference in my playing and technique.

Suzanne B

"This course is very well planned, organized, and progressive. I felt it was a personal tutorial addressing any technical difficulties on a weekly basis. The exercises are interesting, fun, and progressive. It has made a difference in my playing and technique."

Learning to release tension was the greatest take away for me!

Arlene

"This course is amazing--even though I have heard a lot of it previously, it really hit home this time. Learning to release tension was the greatest take away for me--the amazing results you can achieve by releasing tension and the increase in enjoyment by doing so."
