Our Business
Patricia-Phyllis

Our business was founded in 2009 when two long time friends, with similar teaching philosophies and passion for the flute, found that our favorite beginning flute method had been discontinued. We were not able to find another that adequately taught musical concepts, so we decided to write our own.
