 KinderFlute Academy

Classes are now in session at  The Perfect 5th Musical Arts Center in Mechanicsburg on the Carlisle Pike. Contact Molly to visit one of our ongoing classes and perhaps join us for the fall!
Kinderflute™ Academy classes are designed for groups of children ages 4-8 and meet weekly. The classes employ a wide range of fun, movement activities that develop musicianship and promote understanding of flute playing basics. It is recommended that children learn on flutes with curved headjoints, which are easier to handle then traditional flutes and are designed for small hands. Options for flutes are readily available and Molly can assist you in your selection, or help you customize a flute you might already own. Weekly private lessons are also a requirement of the program, so that the instructor can focus on individual musical needs.


A typical Kinderflute™ academy class consists of 5-7 students in a warm, caring environment.  Each class includes fun breathing exercises, music theory games, music listening activities, and movement activities (such as parachute activities and relay races) that improve cognitive understanding of music.

This was Katelyn's second lesson:

A head-start in music provides your child with a passion that lasts a lifetime and stimulation for brain growth that can positively enhance physical, cognitive and emotional functioning.









Many children play violin and piano at an early age, and the same is true for those who wish to play the flute.  A flute with a curved headjoint allows children as young as 4 begin to experience the joy of flute playing, giving a head start in music and learning.
