  • Children are required to participate in one group class each week, plus one private 30 minute lesson per week.
  • Classes concentrate on the flute but are also full of music activities with movement, games, and listening exercises
  • Group classes will be kept to a maximum of 7 students
  • Kinderflute™ is especially designed for children ages 4-8. If your group of slightly older children wish to participate, a class can be formed that will be adapted to suit their ages.

  • Kinderflute™ students are required to practice at least 15 minutes per day
  • Flute instructor Molly Shortridge may teach Kinderflute™ Classes at your location (depending on distance), as long as there are 5-7 children available. Lessons that go along with the classes are to be taught at one of Molly’s three studio choices, however. Visit this page to see more information on lesson locations .

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.
