Our Top Three Starter Flutes

Yamaha flutes have a good reputation for a reason. They are known for their exceptional quality, design, and consistency meaning that a Yamaha flute is a reliable choice for beginners. The YFL-212 model has been created specifically with the beginner in mind. The lip plate is designed to guide beginners towards correct breath utilisation and the keys are ergonomically placed, helping with the balance and playability of the instrument. The flute even has pointed key arms on the non-fingered keys which helps improve precision and responsiveness. Pointed key-arms are usually only seen in more intermediate to advanced flutes so they are a great addition to a beginner flute. The YFL-212 will last you throughout the majority of your music grades making it a great investment.

Also available with a curved headjoint for younger players, or a solid silver lip-plate for a richer and improved tone.
