I offer flute lessons for beginning through advanced students from ages 10 and up, in either 30-minute or hour sessions. Beginner students should take 30-minute lessons to gradually build up muscle endurance and attention span, while for advanced students I typically recommend hour lessons because it is hard to cover more advanced repertoire and higher-level concepts in only 30 minutes!
My studio runs out of my home and I enjoy meeting students at their own learning styles and ability levels. I have taught students from ages 7 to 67 who have had different needs and talents, and I believe that if I can teach you anything about the flute, it's how to enjoy playing! I utilize elements of the Alexander Technique, a way to use the body with the least possible tension, because I don't believe that music practice should hurt. Although regular practice is recommended, I will show you ways to do it that will not cause stress or pain.
Each student gets different repertoire and material based on his or her progress, although I do recommend several standard scale and technique books. Students are welcome to bring material from school music classes or specific goals they would like to achieve. I try to schedule at least one studio recital per school semester so students in my studio can play for each other and gain real-life performing opportunities!

I have been playing the flute for twelve years and have a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance. My favorite thing about music is that it is a form of communication, but that you don't need to know anything about it to understand and enjoy it! My job as a flutist is to spread that message and allow people to appreciate an art form that has been millennia in the making.
I also enjoy teaching private flute lessons to promote enduring skill and appreciation of music. Working one-on-one allows me to build lasting relationships with my students and provide a supportive environment for learning about music, the arts, and life.
