Here are my top choices for Student/Beginner Flutes


  • Yamaha YFL-222
  • Trevor James 10x <click here
  • Pearl PF-500
  • Pearl PF-525(if student plans on seriously playing the flute for many years I greatly recommend the Pearl PF-525)
  • Other acceptable brands are Gemeinhardt and Armstrong.


For smaller/younger players ( ages 8 0r 9 and younger) I recommend

  • Azumi-Wave Line Flute
  • Jupiter-515s Deluxe Standard Flute
  • Jupiter-313s Prodigy Flute


I am happy to help you with any questions you may have regarding purchasing/renting a flute.


Warning!There are many other flute brands out there many of them are relatively ok but the majority are poor quality.
