Carluke Primrose Orchestral Flutes

Although we are fortunate to have many experienced players, a healthy supply of learners are just as important to the orchestra. 


If you're considering joining us and taking up the flute or a percussion instrument, as a beginner or otherwise, then read on. 

 

Beginners

Even if you're a complete beginner, we can provide you with flute tuition, for just £3 per week. What's more, we'll also provide you with a good quality instrument, so you do not need to buy or hire. 

Tuition is given on a one-to-one basis, and is undertaken by one of our experienced members, who is currently embarking on a teaching career. One-to-one teaching means that classes are tailored for you, and you will be able to learn at your own pace.

We are keen to hear from beginners of all ages, including school-aged children. In recent years, we've even had beginners in their 70s!

After progressing through your classes, you'll then have the basics to start playing in the main Orchestra, where you may have the opportunity to play one of our big flutes.

Do contact us if you're considering learning the flute with Carluke Primrose. We'd be delighted to help you achieve your ambitions. 
 

Experienced Players

Perhaps you already have some experience of playing the flute or percussion instruments. In this case, you will be welcomed directly into the main Orchestra. We don't expect everybody to be an expert and don't be put off if you're a bit rusty. By playing regularly within the orchestra, and with the support of the conductor and other players, it'll be like you never put your flute down. 


Equally, if you began learning and didn't quite follow through with your lessons, please still get in touch. We can help you pick up from where you left off. 


Remember that we don't do auditions. We tend to do things in a more relaxed manner and a lot more informally. 


If you want to come and give it a try, please get in touch

 

Membership

One-to-one tuition for learners is £3 per week, which covers hire of the rehearsal room and an instrument.

Your membership includes:

  • An instrument - so you do not need to buy or hire,
  • Weekly rehearsal time with guidance and instruction from an excellent conductor,
  • The chance to perform regularly in concerts and contests across Central Scotland,
  • Opportunities to attend occasional events with the British Flute Society in Scotland,
