I'll be starting to take lessons for the flute. I'm pretty excited. I'll be entirely new to the instrument. How often do you recommend a beginner should have lessons and how long of a session. Thank you.

Weekly lessons are best to help keep you from developing bad habits. Half-hour minimum but one hour is better. Some teachers will do 1/2 hour but some won't.

Are you currently playing any wind instrument? I didn't realize when I started playing the flute how much air is required to play the flute. Of course in the beginning you're not very efficient with your air so that exacerbates the problem. This would be one reason you might want to start with 30 minute lessons versus one hour and gradually build up your stamina.
