Learn Woodwind

Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone and Recorder

Coda offers Woodwind tuition in Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute and Recorder for individuals and groups of all ages and for all abilities from beginners (of any age) through to advanced players. (The starting age for child beginners for the different instruments will vary according to hand size).

Students are encouraged to develop a good playing style within a broad range of music: classical, traditional folk music, pop, world music and jazz.

A student-centred approach allows for individual enthusiasms within a structured programme. Practice books are available to encourage home practice, remember homework and technical tips. Parents of our younger students are welcome to attend lessons and can also help support home practice. There are opportunities for taking external music examinations (Trinity College London and Associated Board) at appropriate times.

Learning a Woodwind instrument at Coda will build and extend skills, learning and understanding of: solo playing. ensemble playing, reading and rhythm games, music theory activities, ear training, informal creativity, music in a wide range of styles, posture and breathing.
