This course provides flute teachers with practical strategies in teaching a beginner student to get started with holding their flute. Topics covered include flute assembly, finger placement strategies, a balanced hold position and great postural techniques. The course is equally suitable for flute students wanting to check up on their own playing techniques and posture.
