This website is for people who are interested in learning Irish music on the flute—in particular the simple-system (six-hole) transverse flute, sometimes referred to as the “Irish flute.”

The guide explains the differences between types of flutes, offers tips on how to choose a flute, and provides advice and resources to help you learn how to play. It also has information on flute maintenance and repair.
