The Guild has 4 overall aims which we believe are of great benefit to all those interested in studying and playing the flute:
1. To promote and encourage the learning and study of the flute, flute playing in idioms and to support and encourage all forms of music education.
2. To promote close relations and cordial co-operation between flautists of all grades (both professional and non-professional) and all other persons interested in flutes, flute playing and musical education in all forms.
3. To promote and organize gatherings of flautists both formally and informally and to encourage groups of players to meet and play together.
4. To encourage and assist in the importation, writing, publishing, performance, recording, broadcasting and appreciation of flute music.
