Three ways to try instruments

Ready to schedule a trial? If your teacher is a member of the Flutistry Cooperative, they’ll reach out to us directly to request the trial and get us all the information we need. Taking lessons online? We can ship directly to you. You can also reach out to us to schedule the trial yourself, but be sure to keep your teacher updated. They’ll want to know you’re trying instruments!

Time to Play

Shipping: You’ll receive tracking information when the instruments ship. As soon as you know when to expect them, reach out to your teacher to schedule a call or video chat to unbox the instruments together. Talk through the instruments in the box with your teacher and plan out your week. Be prepared with a plan for what to test and when you’ll play for your teacher.
