Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone Lessons

Private Woodwind Lessons are great for those who want to learn for fun, or prepare for RCM exams. For students in school band, private lessons can greatly enhance not only a child’s proficiency, but also interest in their instrument. Private instruction will help them advance faster thanks to the one-on-one attention they usually don’t receive in a group band program. Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone lessons are available for ages 8 or 9 and up, including adults and seniors. Children younger than age 8 typically do not have the lung capacity to handle wind instruments. Music Collection also offers Flute, Clarinet and Saxophone instrument rentals and sales.
