Why play the flute you say?
The flute is an instrument that can be mastered, and used as a stepping stone for other instruments. The flute is simple in the fact that only one note can be played at a time. This allows beginners to play great sounding songs, in a short amount of time. Compared to the piano, or guitar (which play multiple notes simultaneously) the flute is a melody instrument. Whether you currently play another instrument or not, Mastering the flute means you will have an increased ability to focus on tone (note clarity and sound quality), beat and rhythm, and music theory (learning to read music).
The aims of the woodwind department of the Music Trust are to develop good quality woodwind players, and to encourage all woodwind players whatever their standard to come and play in our ensembles. We are developing many exciting new ventures and projects. Our ethos is one of fun, but with clearly defined and structured routes to enable pupils to progress at an appropriate pace whilst giving opportunities to extend their musical knowledge and performance skills.
