Music Appreciation

The Magique Flute offers Music Appreciation classes and lessons in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Capital District and Lower Adirondack Region, including Glens Falls and the Lake George Region. We teach Music Appreciation to groups of children and adults of all ages, and we also offer private, individual lessons.

The Magique Flute will teach Music Appreciation according to the interest(s) of a particular group or individual. Our Music Appreciation groups or lessons are flexible learning situations, taking place over three to five or more meetings, depending on what is being studied.

“Music Appreciation” can mean different things to different people. Some people want to learn something very specific, such as an overview of Western Classical music since the Baroque period. Some people want to know more about the instruments used in an orchestra so they can enjoy going to concerts at SPAC. Some people want to understand why different types of music sound different — for instance, why jazz sounds different from classical music. Many people want to learn about the music of different cultures.
