Lessons for Beginners (Fl)

So you’ve decided to play the flute.  Fantastic! Lets get you started off right so you have success as soon as possible and don’t learn any bad habits.  Here are some great videos to help you.  These first few were made by Mr. Selfridge through GoBando.com.  It’s a great website that provides free lessons on a variety of instruments.  I have also included two videos from MusicProfessor.com.  It’s another website that offers online lessons for students of most instruments.
