Flute Classes


The flute is a beautiful sounding wind instrument, which can be played as part of an orchestra, band, or enjoyed on its own. The flute, in its basic form, is perhaps, one of the oldest instruments in world history. Even in Indian music, the wooden side-blown flute, the bansuri, is prominent across all classical forms, and has been associated with Indian mythology too, as much as it is in western classical music and history in its other versions such as the pan flute, the recorder and so on.

Simple system flutes are traditionally made of wood, but there are versions of the flute which are made of brass, and in some cases, even plastic. So, if you want to become part of this great musical tradition and learn how to play the flute, come attend our classes at Rainbow Bridge where we will offer you the right guidance and training for both beginners and amateur musicians. Come, experience music like you never have, with us… at the Bridge. We aim to provide the best training in the flute in Bangalore.
