Flute Tidings to You!
A series of private lessons to improve your flute playing and record a musical greeting card
What is "Flute Tidings to You"?
Students will attend a series of online private lessons with the goal of recording a multi-part flute ensemble “greeting card” that can be shared with family and friends.
Flutists will also receive instruction to improve flute fundamentals and musicality, with the highest quality lessons planned uniquely for each student.
Any level is welcome, from a beginning band student with 2-3 months experience, to intermediate or advanced students, ages 10-99!

The Fine Print
The course fee is $90 for 30-minute lessons and $135 for 45-minute lessons. Students will receive a complementary 10-minute consultation session, a complementary reference recording to use for practicing, and all music that we will cover in the course.
The course fee will be payed upon registration and is non-refundable.
Individual lessons will be scheduled at times agreed upon by the instructor and the student. Lessons must be completed by January 31, 2021. To reschedule a lesson, please provide 24-hours notice or the lesson will be forfeited.
Music selections are limited to Ellen Huntington’s extensive music library. Special requests for music will be considered, but may require an additional fee.
Over the course of the three lessons, students will receive all instruction necessary to make the recording. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the recording outside of the lesson time.
