Are you struggling to consistently practice your scales?

Scale practice can be daunting...I get it!

You probably know just how important scale practice is. You wouldn't be here otherwise! You know that practicing your scales improves your technique. You know it is the best way to see results in your playing. But practicing them on a daily basis is overwhelming and perhaps even just confusing!

What you need is a clear and systematic approach to scales that is easy to follow and tailored to your level. You are not lazy or incapable of learning, you just have not had the right approach...yet!


You need a GOOD system


One of the most transformative moments in my life was discovering a good system to practice my scales and technique. It changed the game for me. 

I have used an adapted version of this system with most of my students and have seen their playing improve significantly. 

I believe in it so much that I created a course...and a book!


Introducing...The Flute Scale Workshop 


The Flute Scale Workshop is an online video course designed to not only help you learn your scales but also improve your overall playing!  I have developed a step-by-step approach to learning your scales that is fun and effective.  


It's more than just learning your scales...


The real magic of this workshop is that we don't just learn your scales, you also get lessons in improving your tone, breathing, articulation, and more! This is because we USE the scales to work on these other areas of your playing. 

With weekly video lessons, extensive practice materials, and detailed practice plans that tell you exactly what to practice and when to practice, you will be able to turn your scale practice around and start seeing some real results. We have done all the thinking work for you so that you can just play


In this course you will receive

  • TWO weekly video lessons

    The first video will explain the scale and how to play it. The second video shows you how you can use the scale to improve a specific aspect of your playing such as tone, breathing, articulation, and much more!

  • Practice materials

    Each week you will receive practice materials to help you practice your scales and improve your technique. These resources are taken straight out of the brand new Flute Practice Scale Book

  • Detailed practice plan

    Each day, you will know exactly what to work on and when to work on it. To help keep you on track, we provide you with a practice plan with daily instructions on what to practice when.

Let's transform your scale practice!

Join this 12-week step-by-step program and learn to LOVE your scales in your own time and at your own pace.

This course makes the scales a lot less scary and offers the opportunity to understand how they work. The step by step guides take the hassle of planning out of the the process, saving valuable practice time - learning the scales also looks much less overwhelming. I really like that we focus not just learning the scales but on other aspects of flute playing at the same time - it makes it all much more fun! I think by the end of the course my playing will have really improved all the while enjoying the process. Thank you, Tatiana!

F scales and arpeggios

Andrew Lindsley

I think it is a well-organised course and very thorough given the range of exercises supplied beyond playing the basic scales and arpeggios.

I had no idea of accomplishment. As a self-taught student, I was pleasantly surprised to learn the intermediate practice plan fit my skill level. Learning the chromatic scales forced me to slow down, improve fingering, work-out those lower notes, and reach a new high note, Bb above the staff. I have yet to try high C above the staff - that's next. The Advanced Exercises develop embouchure muscles and fingering at the same time. The course design is challenging but develops small successes to encourage continued practice, even on those days that I don't sound so good. I am happy!

Loving the course

Lee-Ann S

Well broken down for each level. Once I read through the instructions, I found it easy to follow and lots of little tidbits and gems of ideas to practice. It's like a little TATIANA voice inside saying, relax, breath from the belly remember your wings. Also, it's not overwhelming like so many scale books and courses. This is tailored to me, at my level. I can, though look ahead and see where I am going with this and the challenges to come, in the upper levels. Makes you realize this is a lifelong process and you can always get better. Enjoying it.

Scales! Scales! Scales! Major, Minor, Harmonic, Melodic, whole tone scales!

Suzanne B

I used to practice them all at once and was unable to play and remember without looking at my sheet music until I used Tatiana’s method of working one specific scale at the time. This really pushed me to a higher level of performance and speed naturally came with the proposed exercises in the book. Excellent book!

Exactly the right motivation at the right time.

R Allard

I am part of The Flute Practice’s wonderful virtual community. I’ve watched so many lousy videos and heard so much poorly explained or bad advice before finding The Flute Practice. Finally! A space with clear, concise, proper advice and guidance from a knowledgeable caring person who can teach with ‘gentle toughness’. Exactly the right motivation at the right time. Although I have never heard her say it, but I believe that Tatiana and her team feel they have a personal stake in each of us in this community. If I could put as much faith, motivation and positivity into my musicianship as they do, I will indeed become a better musician, and enjoy the journey. I wish the same to you.
