My son has been taking flute with Yulia Berry for over four years, and a large part of why he loves his instrument so much is due to Ms. Berry. Ms. Berry is a demanding, yet caring instructor who has been able to balance asking a lot of my son with genuine concern for his musical and personal development. Ms. Berry is herself an accomplished flutist. She knows her instrument extremely well, and chooses pieces at just the right level for my son. As his skills have grown, so has the complexity of the pieces that he is assigned. Ms. Berry has been open to requests for pieces that my son has made. For example, currently my son is learning The Nightingale, a piece that he requested after hearing Ms. Berry perform it herslf. There have consistently been two recitals per year, and all of Ms. Berry's students perform multiple pieces at each recital. Ms. Berry is a wonderful teacher, and if you are looking for someone to teach flute to you or your children, look no further.

Yulia Berry is a superior flute teacher. I had taken private flute lessons as a young adult but for many years, I was on my own. When I came to study with Yulia, she very quickly brought my playing to a whole new level. She is very conscientious and precise in her teaching. She not only listens to the sounds you make on your flute but she watches your form and technique. She thinks carefully about the material that her students are studying and her recitals are rich with beautiful music. I highly recommend her as a Flute teacher; you will not be disappointed.

Customer Testimonials

My daughter is 5 years old and this is her first time learning an instrument. Yulia is such an excellent teacher with a wealth of experience and patience for beginners, no matter you are an adult or a child. After a year of study with Yulia, I can see great progress in my daughter. She can now play a lot of music with recorder and start to show great interest and feeling for music. I'm so happy to have Yulia as her teacher. I would not hesitate to recommend Yulia to anyone who wants to learn flute or recorder.


Yulia is a superb teacher. I am always learning new things and improving my craft by studying with Yulia. Her recitals are well thought out and professional. I highly recommend her!


Yulia is an exceptional teacher! I have learned more from her in less than a year taking two lessons a month than from any of my five previous teachers. I am an adult and she has helped me improve my tone, breathing, technique and phrasing. She explains things well and sets high expectations, but is patient. Plus, she is a lovely person!
