The flute (and piccolo) are the highest-pitched instruments of the woodwind family. Flutes are used in marching band, concert band, chamber ensembles, orchestra, and as a solo instrument. As one of the earliest known musical instruments, flutes have been constructed of many different materials, but modern flutes are manufactured of nickel, silver, or in the case of professional artist flutes, gold or platinum.

While the concept of flute sound production is simple (a stream of air blown across a hole in the head joint), the speed and direction of air stream and lip tension (defined as embouchure) necessary to produce a fluid, clear tone is complex. Our flute instructors at Pellegrino Fine Arts Academy are highly-qualified professionals who are experienced with students of all levels - beginner through advanced.


 What are the benefits of flute lessons?

  • One-on-one, individualized instruction tailored to meet your specific needs
  • Our instructors teach proper embouchure, hand position, posture, and correct bad habits that may impede a student's progress
  • Students are introduced to flute literature (etudes, solos, ensembles) written by foremost composers for that instrument
  • Our instructors can recommend the right flute to match a student's ability level and explain the differences between beginner, intermediate, and advanced-level instruments


Pellegrino Fine Arts Academy flute lessons cost $112.00 per month. For your $112.00, you receive four lessons, one per week, each 30 minutes in length. In months with five weeks, we do charge for the fifth week of lessons, bringing your tuition for those months to $140.00. There is a one-time, new student registration fee of $30.00, with a discounted registration fee of $20.00 for each additional family member.

 With our program, you are under no obligation to enroll for any "set" period of time - you can begin whenever you like and take as many or as few lessons as you feel necessary. Payment is through our automated billing system and is charged to your choice of credit or debit card on the first of each month for the month in advance.
