About Me

As I child I had an early interest in music, dancing and creative things. I took piano lessons and excelled at my chosen instrument, the flute, in band at school. I continued with my music training at Northwestern College in Roseville, Minnesota and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Education in 1992. I worked for 11 years in my profession in various settings before I took a break to start my family. My experience includes teaching students in classroom general music, choir, band, piano lessons, and school plays/musicals. I spent six years at a private school (grades K-8), three years at a charter elementary school and 2 years at a public elementary school. Also, since graduating in 1992 I have spent a total of 16 years teaching private lessons both at Hovland Conservatory of Music and in my home. Along the way I further broadened my background by accompanying church choirs and congregations, playing for weddings, and volunteering to lead children‚¬Ä¬ôs music time at church.

I love music of all kinds and have a strong belief that everyone should experience the joy and power of it in his or her life. It is very rewarding for me to help students develop their skills as they discover a meaningful way of self-expression using a universal language. Teaching music is something I love to do and I know that fact reflects to my students resulting in an enjoyable experience for them as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
What can a student/parent expect from lessons with me? I can provide my students with a solid foundation of proper technique. This is so very important because you do not ever want to have to unlearn bad habits. I also include appropriate music theory, ear training and improvising for each level. I purposefully pace the lessons to prevent students from feeling frustrated. Instead, I work to generate excitement about the learning process and keep students motivated by their own progress. Furthermore, I am willing to accommodate a student if they have a special interest in a certain musical genre or a personal goal they are working towards. I encourage, but do not require students to take advantage of recital and performance opportunities that I provide.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large music room: piano, flute, clarinet, mouth pieces for trumpet, trombone, french horn and sax, snare drum

*** Specialties ***
I have a lot of experience teaching students who are brand new to their instrument. I believe the beginning is a very important time to start building a solid foundation for all future musical growth. I love being able to help my students establish good habits from the beginning and influence the overall direction of a new student‚¬Ä¬ôs musical experience.

I love music of all kinds and have fun playing and teaching all the instruments that I listed. However, the two instruments that I have the most training on and have performed on are the piano and the flute. I would be a great teacher for private lessons to help a student excel in band at school or for a high school student preparing for contests or auditions. Also, I am very patient with beginners and would be ideal as a child'€™s first piano teacher or for an adult who has always wanted to play a certain instrument of his or her choice.

About Me

A love of music began in the third grade. I started on a silver metal clarinet and have not stopped playing. I am a musician, composer, arranger and performer. I hold a B.A. in music and have taught in the schools for 28 years. I bring extensive knowledge and humor to my teaching. I enjoy working with all age levels and pride myself on being intensely positive.

*** Lesson Details ***
The focus of music lessons is to overcome problems and increase skill and enjoyment in performance. I always want to focus on what was done well and carefully work on skills that will increase enjoyment. I will play with you to model and help you self correct as you learn musical concepts and musicianship. We will use method books for fundamentals and supplement with music that interest the students. After a time students will learn skills needed to perform a wider range of music

*** Studio Equipment ***
Most instruments

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide an instrument, method book, stand and supplies for that instrument. I will bring an instrument to play along and model.

*** Specialties ***

About Me

Hi, my name is Huei-Mei but you can call me May. I have played the flute since I was 10, and speak English (and Chinese!) fluently. I offer a flute teaching studio in the Twin Cities with individual students from all levels, beginner to advanced. In general, some lesson topics include:

Why an excellent tone matters
How to accurately interpret music‚Äč
How to improve technique (e.g. fingering, vibrato, tonguing, ) ‚Äč
Why your breathing may be wrong, and tools for improvement

I also teach flute master classes in North Dakota and Minnesota, including the Minnesota All State Band and International Music Camp. I am an active member of the Upper Midwest Flute Association, National Flute Association, Minnesota Music Educators Association, and Marcel Moyse Society.

I completed my Doctorate of Music at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus and my Masters in Music at the University of Miami, Frost School of Music. Lear more at www.meiflute.com

I have been teaching private lessons and classes in community education to students of all ages since 2007. I have also taught music in early childhood education as well as music therapy programs at Minnesota Veterans Homes.

About Me

I'm a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music where I studied Music Performance (for Drum Set) and Music Education. I've studied under great teachers including Rod Morgenstein, Bob Gripp, Henrique De Almeida, Eric LeVan, Jackie Santos, Steve Wilkes, and the list goes on. I also have experience performing in a wide variety of contexts and genres. In your lessons with me I will help you to achieve any musical goals you have as well as to take your current skills up to the next level and beyond. I have a wealth of knowledge about music theory and teaching methodology, as well as experience in execution of these skills. Your lessons with me will be fun as well as informative, and if you are willing to put in the work I can guarantee you will make progress as my student.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm an easy-going guy, so I won't push you very hard unless you want me too. My lessons will focus on achieving your goals. If you want to master your instrument in general, we will focus on theoretical concepts and technique. If you are looking for a fun time and just trying to learn a few songs, I will help you to do that as well. Regardless of your learning goals, I will strive to make my lessons entertaining as well as informative, and together we will make rapid progress if you're willing to put in some work!

Excepting students of all ages and all levels in and around the greater Twin Cities area.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must provide their own instruments and have something available to take notes with, but I will provide materials and anything else that is needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Drum Set, all genres, but my strongest ones are Rock, Jazz, and Latin styles. I can teach lessons through advanced levels on drums of all sorts and percussion. I can teach or tutor Music Theory to a very high level as well. I am also proficient enough to teach beginner-intermediate piano.
