In the San Francisco Bay area we are fortunate to have many excellent flutists and flute teachers. Contact local music schools and conservatories for teachers. You can also find instructors online. One site with many flute teachers is craigslist. I also keep an unvetted listing of websites of San Francisco Bay Area flutists. These are sites of some of the people that I know and does not imply any endorsement. This list represents only a few of the many flutists in the area. Many of these people also teach, so contact them individually to discuss your learning needs.
