The flute is a very popular musical instrument, among the wind instruments. The warm and beautiful, mellow tone of the flute gives it a chance to be a lead musical instrument. It carries the melody of many musical repertoire pieces. It also is not difficult to learn.
Whether you wish to start flute lessons online, or engage a flute teacher for face to face coaching, you will benefit a lot in picking up this music skill. Let me go through the many benefits of starting online flute classes:
1. Practicing on the flute helps to improve coordination. Specifically, the flute player needs to coordinate the eyes, hands, mouth to play the musical instrument. As a musician, you will need to learn to read music notes and understand theory or music. As such, the eye needs to read music notes, hand needs to press on the keys of the flute, the flute player needs to focus on breathing and rhythm to create good tone from the flute. All at the same time.
2. Many new students have the misconception that the mouth is most important for playing on this musical instrument. Actually, the diaphragm is the core from where the flute player uses to blow air into the mouthpiece. One experiences a full hundred percent workout of the lungs, similar to that experienced by swimmers. Thus giving you strong core muscles.
3. Once you learn flute online, you will learn different rhythmic patterns. A crochet note is one count, a minim note is two counts, a quaver note is half count and a semi quaver note is one quarter of a count. Thus you will improve your mathematics and counting ability. This is very useful for young kids who are developing cognitively. It is also proven to cognitively help older students who have retired.
4. Learning how to play a music instrument requires dedication and many hours of repetitive practice. As a student, one needs to be very disciplined in setting aside time to productively polish up your skills. We only have twenty-four hours a day. After accounting for sleep, work or study, we actually do not have much time left except for pursuits which we deem important.
5. Once you have mastered playing the flute, you will have a lot of confidence in yourself. This is because it is not easy to learn to play any musical instrument. From the beginning, it is an achievement when one can hold a note for a few seconds as this required good lung capacity. Then, the ability to product good tone on the flute is something to celebrate once you can do it. Next on the list is improving on the tonalization including slur, staccato, crescendo and de crescendo. Once you have mastered these, this is a big milestone in life which you should celebrate. Moving on, when you can master intermediate to advance level music pieces, you feel very good about your achievement. You will gain a huge sense of achievement and this mindset will overflow to the other aspects of your life.
6. Listening to music relaxes one. Playing a musical instrument helps to relieve stress. During your online flute classes, you will be using your brain cells and lung muscles to play on a musical instrument like the flute. Very much like yoga practice, you can focus on the present and forget about all your worries at work, in school and in life in general. This is even more therapeutic for those who love music.
7. When you start flute lessons online, your teacher will coach you to play repertoire pieces. As you progress, these increases in length and complexity. You will need to remember more and more things as you execute these complicated pieces. So, learning a musical instrument like the flute increases your memory capacity. Your ability to remember things also improves over time, meaning that you can remember things longer.
