Private Lessons

For private lessons at BFA, students can choose between two different tracks:

  • Accelerated Studies – for students interested in pursuing a career in music or in taking advanced auditions for local youth orchestras, such as BYSO, MYWE, NEC YPO, or All Districts and All State auditions
  • General Studies – for students of all levels who would like to progress at their own pace, while still receiving the finest flute instruction

Students enrolled in private lessons at BFA have the opportunity to attend private recitals and masterclasses with world class guest artists, perform onstage in practice recitals and formal concerts, be inspired by flutists of all levels (from novice to professional), take part in the mentoring program, and attend special classes and workshops designed with the flutist in mind. BFA provides flutists access to a vibrant flute community, an environment which both inspires and motivates our students.

BFA currently offers private lessons in five locations:

  • Metrowest Boston, MA
  • Chelmsford, MA
  • Jamaica Plain, MA
  • Newton Upper Falls, MA
  • Maliotis Cultural Center in Brookline, MA

BFA requires an interview and trial lesson to determine the best possible student-teacher match. Acceptance to the private lessons program is not based on musical experience, but rather is determined by level of interest in learning the flute and a positive working relationship between student and teacher. Flutists of all ages and levels are welcomed!
