1. Learn To Play The Flute With Sir James Galway For Beginners And Beyond

This has to be the ultimate gift for any aspiring flute player. For most of us playing or learning with the World’s master flute player is just a distant dream. Although he does also do holiday lessons. This is an online course with James Galway which is very good value for money. Although as you’d expect at $99 per year it’s a tad more expensive than a T-shirt. But a lot more impactful. And not nearly as expensive as you’d expect.

10 A Flute Patreon Membership

For those interested in flute playing you could give them a Patreon membership to a flute group/ tutor like The Flute Practice.

There are many different tutors on Patreon that teach the flute. Sometimes it’s just about the group and the information they share rather than just a course. So they might want to hang out to practice. Teaching you to play in front of people or giving you access to more sheet music.

All this enhances rather than conflicts with any other lessons they may have.

Not everyone appreciates handmade gifts, however for those that do they are that much more special. If you are a crafter able to make something well then this is a great idea for a gift. Or if you are not you can get someone to do this for you. That way your gift will be truly unique.
