Traditional Flute School - Key Use and Scales


Brendan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this online Traditional Flute School. Combine this with great humour, encouragement, and many stories about tunes along the way, it makes for a very informative, relaxed, and enjoyable experience!

This flute school has a very strong emphasis on practice techniques and there is a separate course on this alone to cover the basic beginner to very advanced on daily routines and how to approach ornamentation. There is the beginner, intermediate and advanced courses and for extra value Brendan had also added sections for key work & scales and if that’s not enough there will be a B flat suite where tunes will be added on the low B flat flute, one for the aficionados!

You will have access to Brendan for advice, mentoring and most of all feedback on how you are getting on via the various groups and music pages associated with the music school.

At least a year’s worth of material should keep you busy and new tunes will be added to this. You will also have access to join Brendan’s private (Flute Craic Sessions) happening every few months. This will provide a meeting place where all the students can join Brendan from his home for a session on a Saturday evening via zoom, pour a glass of wine get the flute out and play TUNES!!
