I teach out of my home studio OR travel to your home for lessons - this way families can decide what works best for them! Reach out to me directly with any additional questions :)
With experience teaching pre-K through collegiate levels and beyond, I specialize in teaching reading fluency to beginners and intermediate/advanced-level flute technique and repertoire. In addition to weekly lessons, my students perform solos in recitals and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular ensembles. Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson-time is also devoted to preparing students for entrance and seating auditions, when applicable.
As a teacher, I re-evaluate and adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper flute technique and nurturing their musical integrity, I am committed to empowering and assisting my students to develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.
