Perhaps you’re just starting out....or need inspiration to keep on?
Perhaps you are just starting out? Perhaps you are picking up the instrument again after many years? Perhaps you are taking lessons, or are not and need something to help keep you going? Either way, welcome to your online practice and learning space.
So many people harbor a dream to play...
So many people harbor a dream to play an instrument and find meaningful joy in this expressive art form. For many, this dream seems daunting and unattainable but online learning has made it possible for you to learn an instrument from the comfort of your own home. The Flute Practice is a hub of online flute learning that supports, inspires and motivates flutists from all over the world.

What we do...
About me and how can it help you and your love for the flute?
Who am I? If you don't know yet, my name is Tatiana Thaele and I am based in Cape Town. I am not going to bore you with too many details about my flute playing and accolades but I will allow LinkedIn (click here) to do that work for me and rather give you something more important: why I love to help people such as yourself, discover their potential and fall in love with their instrument.
One of my favorite moments is meeting a new student or player and hearing their sound and musical voice. It is like unwrapping a gift, a gift that promises to be unique each time. This is only the beginning. The work begins and I become part of your journey, your highs and lows, I watch you learn and grow and I get to guide, support, and motivate you as you go.
Then....my absolute favorite moment
The moment when I see that "aha" moment, your breakthrough, your transformation. This is really why I love to teach and work with players, this is what I would like to help do for you.
