Flute, fife, piccolo and recorder lessons are currently available in Worcester on week days. If interested in taking lessons in W. Boylston, please call the office or e-mail Kristjon@pakmusic.org to check on availability.
Students should generally be about 10 years old to begin the flute. For younger students, we recommend the fife. The Fife is similar to flute but smaller and thus ideal for younger students aged 7, 8 and 9 years old. The fife is a great way to prepare for flute lessons in the future.
To get started, you may wish to submit this lesson inquiry form.
Recorder lessons are also available for ages 6 and up.
For piccolo lessons, one should already know how to play the flute.
The fife and recorder both require less air. Both are smaller than the flute and easier for a younger student to handle. The flute, on the other hand, requires considerable air capacity to generate and sustain a sound, the student must be strong enough to hold the instrument horizontally for a sustained number of minutes, and should have sufficient arm length to stretch and reach the keys.
We accept students of all levels, beginning to advanced. Adult students are also welcome.
While lessons are scheduled on a weekly basis during the school year, we will consider accepting adult students on an every-other-week basis if scheduling permits.
Summer lessons are available on an individual basis according to student and teacher availability. Please contact the office in April or May for information regarding summer lesson availability.
Please contact Kristjon Imperio, Program Director at Kristjon@pakmusic.org for more information regarding scheduling.
