FLUTE / CLARINET / ALTO SAX / TRUMPET LESSONS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

We teach private flute, clarinet, alto  and trumpet lessons for all levels, and students may add a Star Power Band for the ultimate music making opportunity.

Researchers agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, helps students with higher math achievement, builds self confidence, improves coordination and problem-solving, increases fine motor development and much more – including fostering the basic intrinsic value of developing a love and joy for the arts and music.

Performances are available for each level of study.

PLUS: Join our Practice Club with weekly prizes and chances to win a local area gift certificate twice each year.

PRIVATE FLUTE LESSONS

Ages five through adult

In a private flute lesson, the teacher has the opportunity to help the student individually for the entire lesson time, and structures each lesson personally for the student depending on their skill level and goals. We teach all styles of music, from beginning basics through baroque, classical, popular and familiar songs– you name it!

Young students begin with a recorder and learn all of the fingerings, breathing techniques, posture, and more concepts, learning a lot of basics before moving on to the flute (this lets the student focus on the most important aspects of playing without holding a heavy instrument). Students usually upgrade to a full size flute around the 3rd or 4th grade, or earlier with a curved mouthpiece, or if they are more physically developed at a younger age, it all depends on arm length (need to be able to reach the g# key with their pinkie finger without struggling to do so).

Private flute students are welcome to perform at our Coffee House Shows, Music Showcase in June (optional), take the Texas State Theory Test in May (optional) and also participate in our Rising Star Music Competition in January (optional)and Achievement Auditions (optional).

Private Flute Lessons Basics:

30, 45, or 60 Minute Weekly Lessons

  • Scale Book and Technique Warm-ups, fingerings
  • Sight-reading book
  • Method Book with CD
  • Repertoire Books (Classical, Student Choice)
  • Supplementary Material (popular, seasonal, sheet music)
  • Note Speller Book, or Theory Book

Private flute lessons are designed for students to progress at their own pace. Students/parents have input about the style and genre of music they would like to work on. Parent is welcome to observe the lessons, or learn to play right along with the student FREE.

The Star Power Band Series at the Frisco School of Music is our best value, and a very unique and popular series. Students have their regular private flute, clarinet, saxophone or trumpet lesson each week, plus attend a one-hour Star Power Band Class each week as well.

Star Power Bands are for beginners through advancing players on all instruments. Learning to play together as a team, mastering your part, putting it all together as a stage performance, learning about basic styles and forms is covered each week. Basic music theory concepts are also taught using examples from the songs the bands are playing. Students move ahead in their skill levels at their own pace, and the teacher assigns parts appropriate for each band member. Rock 'n Roll (classic and contemporary) and familiar classics.

Star Power Band Series students participate in all school activities including Shows, Concerts, Coffee Houses, Local Venues, Theory Test, Achievement Graduations, and more. Bands choose their Band Name and brand, and have their picture in the program booklet and posted at the School.
