Flow Music Method courses

One on one instrumental lessons

The Flow Music Method can be learnt in individual lessons in a relatively short amount of time. One on one lessons are suitable for all high school, tertiary and professional instrumentalists. One lesson is required for learning the 14 Flow Tips and a second lesson is required for follow-up after they have been applied to practice sessions. A third lesson is recommended after the Flow Tips have been applied to performances and then refresher lessons may be required over time.
