Flutists are very talented musicians who can help give your event a graceful atmosphere, no matter the occasion. As part of the woodwind family, the Flute is the only instrument without a wooden reed, which makes the music produced mellow and light.
If you are thinking of hiring a Flautist for your next event for the very first time, you might have all sorts of questions relating to your booking. Here we have put together a guide filled with tips and advice which you can use to refer to before you part with your hard-earned cash and make that all-important booking.
What Events Are Flutists Suitable for?
Flutists offer a very romantic, gentle performance which makes them suitable across a variety of events, especially where you need a light and rich performance. Hire a Flutist for the following…
- Wedding Ceremony Entertainment
- Wedding Drinks Reception Entertainment

- And much more!
Where do I find Flutists on your Website?
Finding a Flutist is very easy when you use our website and there are two main ways to achieve this. Firstly, you can use our navigation bar which is situated at the top of every single page. You’ll see the following options: General Entertainers, Musical Entertainers, Event Services and Auditions & Gigs. If you click on “Musical Entertainers”, you will be presented with a drop-down menu which showcases the main categories and a selection of sub-categories. Look for “Instrumentalists” and once you click the “More >>” button, you will be shown our complete selection of sub-categories for Instrumentalists. Flutists is listed in this section.
The other way to find Flutists on our entertainment directory is to use our search function, which is again on every single page of our website. All you need to do is start typing “Flutists” into the “I’m Looking For” search field, and if you want to narrow down your search even more, you can also add a location. Once you have filled in our search form, you can click on the Search button and you will be presented with a list of matching entertainers.

What do Flutists Actually Do?
A Flutist will bring a whimsical and beautiful performance to any event as they perform using their instrument. Using their breath, they blow into a mouthpiece opening on their flute and use their fingers to change the note as they play. A flute is generally played by holding it sideways with both hands. This type of performance is a fantastic choice for many events, especially weddings and other romantic occasions and you will be usually be able to choose between classical pieces, instrumental versions of modern songs or a mix of the two!
How long will a Flutist perform for?
It is quite difficult to predict how long a flutist will be able to perform for, since each performer will have their own set-lists and performance times, however usually a flutist will be able to perform for a couple of hours. If you need a longer performance time, this might be a possibility but we always recommend checking with your chosen performer first.
How much do Flutists cost?
Since many factors can influence the price of hiring a Flutist, we can’t give an accurate quotation, however using our website you can easily request a no-obligation quote from our performers directly using our contact forms which are situated on each of our entertainers profile pages. Certain factors such as distance to travel to your venue, time of the year and level of experience can all affect the price of hiring a Flutist.
What Should I Ask a Flutist?
There are many questions you might want to ask a Flutist before booking, especially if you have never organised this type of entertainment before. We have put together a checklist of questions that you can refer to, however never be afraid to add your own. Ask a Flutist the following before booking…
- Are you available to perform on the date of my event?
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
- How much space will you need to perform?
- Do you have previous experience in similar events as mine?
- Can you provide previous client testimonials?
- What songs can you play?
- How long will you be able to perform for?
- How much do you charge for your services?
- What percentage deposit is needed to secure my date?
Once you get in contact with any of our performers, you will have a direct line with them so that you can make further enquiries and book them.
How Do I Choose a Flutist?
Choosing a Flutist is very much a personal choice but here at www.EntertainersWorldwide.com we give you as much information as possible to help make your decision even easier.
