Meet Alexandra

Alexandra Petropoulos Flute Teacher

Hi! I’m Alexandra, the creator of the Flute Nerd Lab. 

With over 20 years of experience teaching hundreds of adult students, I understand the challenge and joy of learning the flute outside of a school setting. I also know that if you can’t afford private flute lessons (which are expensive!), learning the flute can be a lonely venture. 

Which is exactly why I’ve created the Flute Nerd Lab! My goal is to help you rediscover your joy of flute, support you in your learning and help you find a few flute nerd friends along the way!

Still have questions?

Absolutely! Players of all levels are welcomed to join! The Flute Nerd Lab’s supportive and encouraging environment provides a space where beginners can feel comfortable asking questions, sharing their progress, and receiving constructive feedback from both peers and an experienced teacher.

Designed with every level of player in mind, The Flute Nerd Lab offers a bespoke experience that adapts to your individual learning curve. Challenges cater to various skill levels, ensuring there’s always something to stretch your abilities without feeling overwhelmed. Workshops and classes will cover a range of techniques and ideas, and I actively encourage members to suggest topics or request modifications to exercises, ensuring that your needs are met.

This community is designed with adult learners in mind, focusing on the unique challenges and opportunities that adult students face.

While the environment is supportive and educational, the materials and discussions may not be specifically geared towards younger learners. Parents of younger flute students might want to check out the content and structure of our community to assess its suitability for their child, keeping in mind that the primary audience is adults.

To join live classes, workshops and chats, all you’ll need is Zoom. While downloading the Zoom app on your desktop or device can enhance your experience, it’s not strictly necessary. A direct link is provided for every event in the calendar, allowing you to join with or without the app installed.

For those eager to participate actively and possibly play during calls for feedback, I suggest enabling the “Original Sound for Musicians” setting in Zoom to ensure the best audio quality. Don’t worry if this sounds complex; I got you covered with step-by-step instructions available here.

Sort of! Skool doesn’t offer a free trial, but I want to make sure you get the opportunity check out the community and make sure it’s something you’ll find valuable. I’m confident you’ll love what’s inside but if for any reason you don’t, your first month’s subscription is fully refundable.

This community is hosted through Skool and all their subscriptions are in USD$. However, payments are taken via Stripe, which will easily convert the prices into your local currency!

Absolutely! I understand that flexibility is key, which is why I’ve made sure that cancelling your membership straightforward and hassle-free. You can manage your subscription directly through Skool and opt to cancel at any moment that suits you without any long-term commitments or fees.

No specific purchases are necessary to fully engage with The Flute Nerd Lab. I will provide all essential excerpts or etudes needed for challenges and classes to ensure you have everything required for a complete learning experience. However, the platform is a wonderful opportunity for members to explore and expand their repertoire and music library at their own pace. While not mandatory, purchasing additional pieces can enhance your personal collection and provide new avenues for exploration and enjoyment on your Flute Nerd Lab journey!

The challenges, workshops and classes primarily cover classical techniques and repertoire, offering a solid flute foundation. However, I wholeheartedly encourage members to explore and share a broad spectrum of genres. Engaging with various styles not only enriches your playing experience but also fosters a greater sense of cultural empathy and curiosity.

Certainly! For those seeking a more in-depth learning experience, there are special ad hoc one-to-one lesson opportunities available. These private sessions are available at a special discounted rate exclusively for members, allowing you to dive deeper into your flute practice alongside our group classes and resources.

I understand that life can get busy, which is why every live workshop and class are recorded and available to members for catch up at a time that suits their schedule.

Please note that the casual coffee chats (and workshops or classes in which no one attended) are not recorded.

Each week, we introduce a new practice challenge to keep you motivated and engaged. Challenges are designed to improve different aspects of your playing in a fun and supportive environment. Each one caters to various skill levels, either as open challenges suitable for every player or divided into different level options, ensuring there’s always something to stretch your abilities without feeling overwhelmed.

What sets The Flute Nerd Lab apart from other online flute sites is its holistic approach to learning, which is both immersive and community-driven. At the heart of this community is the belief that learning should be fun and engaging.

Here’s how I bring that vision to life:

  • Live, Interactive Events: Unlike many online courses that rely on pre-recorded content, we prioritise live events, creating real-time interactions that foster a dynamic learning environment. This approach allows for immediate feedback, spontaneous questions, and the kind of personal connection that makes learning more effective and enjoyable.
  • Personalised Feedback: Every member has the opportunity to receive personalised feedback on their playing, a feature that sets us apart. This individualised attention ensures that you’re not just another face in the crowd but a valued member of our flute family, with guidance tailored to your unique needs and goals.
  • Supportive Community Atmosphere: The Flute Nerd Lab is more than just a platform for learning; it’s a vibrant, welcoming and supportive family of flute nerds!
  • Engagement and Gamification: The community incorporates elements of gamification and regular challenges to make learning not just educational but truly engaging. This approach helps maintain motivation and keeps the learning process fun, encouraging continuous improvement and participation.
