Bill T. Brooklyn, NY

I think the flute can produce such beautiful and colorful sounds and is a tool for great expression. Therefore, in lessons, covering all the basics of proper tone production, breath support, vibrato, musicality and technique will ensure a solid foundation with which even the highest levels of success can be built upon. I teach these concepts through the use of various exercises, etude/method books, as well as duet books which are incredibly essential for musical development and are also fun!

Bill is a fantastic teacher. I am currently a professional actor/saxophonist, and I was looking to broaden my horizons by picking up the clarinet. Right from the beginning of our instruction, Bill struck a perfect balance: on the one hand, he pushed me to gain proficiency quickly, knowing that I was eager to begin playing at a professional level; and on the other hand, he focused on methodically and meticulously building a solid foundation of strong technique.

In addition, Bill was enormously helpful when it came to selecting the right equipment. He was accessible, knowledgeable, and even perused some available clarinets to help me find the ideal instrument for my goals and skill level.

I could not recommend Bill highly enough. He will tailor your instruction to your skill level, will be supportive and encouraging, and will give you both the tools and the motivation to reach your highest potential.

Bill is a very talented, professional, reliable and kind teacher. He has been working with my son for almost a year now and we can definitely see the difference. My son is always eager to practice and learn when Bill comes over for the lesson. Since starting working with Bill, my son has surpassed all the kids in his junior high school's band group. This is particularly important and extremely helpful for when he auditions for a scholarship at the catholic high school that we are considering.

Awesome Sax Teacher

Bill is a great teacher. Teaching an adult to learn an instrument for the first time is not an easy task. Bill has tons of patience even when I don't find the time in my busy schedule to practice. He mixes class time with both practice and theory, and it is always interesting and challenging. He isa super cool guy who invites me to go watch him play. I haven't had a chance yet but am looking forward to seeing him rock out. I have already recommended him to a few friends of mine.

Flute lessons focus on posture, breath control, theory, and performance in all genres of music.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style. ...

My 11-year-old absolutely loves Miss Loretta. She's enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and makes learning music fun. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson and learning something new. If my daughter brings a piece she wants to learn, Loretta finds a way to fit it in. It's clear that Loretta loves teaching and is a natural at it. We feel lucky to have found her.

In my last lesson, Loretta helped me work through a major misconception about myself. I did not believe that my voice sounded good in falsetto - so I didn't practice it, lowered my expectations, and generally created a self-defeating barrier..

The transformation in learning to love what's coming out of my pipes is more than just voice-deep. Now I believe there are new lands I can conquer! Thank you for helping me to love my upper register Loretta!

Kristin has been one of the best instructors that I've ever had. I started flute lessons with her with a lot of bad habits picked up from an instructor at the school was I was attending. I didn't know that they were bad until Kristin walked me through why they were bad. She helped me break the habits, and since then I've been doing much better. I haven't tripped up as much as I used to, and I really do attribute it to her. Now I just need to practice more. She's very patient, always with a smile on her face, and made me feel very comfortable, whether it was at her home or mine. She has also been very flexible with my schedule.

I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone!

Heidi says, "I love music and I love sharing it with others. Music is fun, educational, and inspirational, and my love for it is contagious. I've spent most of my life learning as much as I could as fast as I could about music and the flute.

I am a teacher at heart! I have taught music lessons since the early 1980's. Many of my students have achieved Superior ratings in music competitions and my adult flute choir traveled from Albuquerque, NM to Las Vegas, NV to perform in the National Flute Association's Annual Convention.

I think of myself as a professional teacher. Even after 30 years, ...

She is easy to respect and like as her personality is very congenial and sweet.

Heidi is an amazing and effective flute teacher!

As an adult flute player, I am thrilled to have discovered Heidi. From the first lesson, I realized she is an excellent flute teacher who goes above and beyond during each lesson, making every second count. Heidi is patient, flexible, organized, professional, and fun to work with. I believe Heidi is a RARE find as she is an exceedingly effective teacher. She listens attentively and finds just the right solutions to each flute playing issue. As a result she has helped me develop a new posture, better tone, and improved technical skills. We have been utilizing Skype for my lessons and this arrangement has worked out particularly well. Additionally, Heidi goes the extra mile and then one step more! For example, after a lesson she makes an audio recording of her playing the current technical exercise and music piece, including both parts to flute duets and then emails them to me. This is especially helpful as it is like having Heidi with me during my daily practice sessions. It is evident that Heidi is passionate about teaching flute. Additionally, she is a pleasure to work with! With the highest endorsement, I recommend Heidi for teaching flute.

Thankful for Ms. Heidi!

How thankful we are to have found Ms. Heidi! She is a kind, patient, lovely person and my life and the lives of my children have been enriched by her. Her love of music is contagious and she is a very sweet teacher, always making lessons positive and educational for my 6 year old...who tends to get discouraged quite easily, but Ms. Heidi is a pro at handling this! He is getting more talented every week and lessons are something we look forward to each week. I have two younger daughters as well and we all go to Ms. Heidi’s studio. She is so sweet to entertain them by offering books and such to read during my son’s lesson. Pretty soon they’ll be all playing piano together!We all love our piano teacher and feel special to know her. She is a talented teacher and wonderful person, and we would recommend her to anyone.
David B. Brooklyn, NY

I use approaches from canonical flute method books (Marcel Moyse, Taffanel & Gaubert) along with etudes as a means to strengthen the fundamental technique of my students.

With beginners, demystifying tone production, vibrato and hand placement are emphasized in order to have the better enjoy the process of learning the instrument.

I'm also interested in working with students who want to focus on alto flute and piccolo and address the idiosyncrasies of these members of the flute family.

About David

Originally from Trinidad & Tobago, I am a former principal flutist of the National Symphonia of Trinidad & Tobago and the critically-acclaimed jazz fusion group Elan Parle, performing at several jazz festivals throughout the Caribbean. After graduating from the M.A. jazz program of Queens College, I've performed in a number of jazz, world music and musical theater groups, most notably being with Ron Reid's 'Sunsteel' at the Kennedy Center, percussionist/composer Antonio De Vivo as well as with the quartet that performs my original music.

I use traditional flute pedagogy to ensure my students have a solid foundation but also bring my non classical experience to make the lessons engaging and fun.

David is a born teacher. I began my sessions with David after a 20 year hiatus from the instrument (gave it up after 8th grade), and brought a considerable amount of insecurity and awkwardness with me to our first few classes. However, David was able to put me right at ease with his easygoing and humorous manner, and following his lead I have made more progress than I would have thought possible in a few months- particularly with improving my tone and embouchure. Every class leaves me feeling more confident about my abilities to become a respectable flutist, despite being a latecomer to the instrument. He inspires with his own beautiful playing, and enlightens with great metaphors that somehow finally help me understand what my mouth and breath are supposed to be doing :) I couldn't recommend him highly enough, and I'm looking forward to all our future sessions.

My flute skills were rather rusty when David and I started working together. Give his emphasis in jazz performance, I thought that I would have to work with another teacher to reinforce my technical skills. Not so. David has been OUTSTANDING in both the jazz improvisation side of our work together, and also in the reinforcement of the technical flute skills I wanted to master. His easy-going personality, combined with his high standards for excellence works exceptionally well for me. Even when my practicing hasn't been what it should have been, David's creative teaching skills have turned what could have been a lackluster lesson into a substantial learning experience. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I was concerned about studying the flute via Skype but that is a non-issue. Even when Skype may be having issues, we are able to make the time work well and make progress toward my goals.

About Flute

The flute is one of the most popular instruments for students learning music, and for good reason. It’s fairly easy to learn, is one of the most affordable instruments to purchase or rent, and it can be used in playing all styles of music. Flute is prevalent in orchestra arrangements and jazz ensembles, and there is a large selection of solo pieces for flute.

If you’re a beginner, private flute lessons help you develop your skill and technique faster. Playing the flute requires understanding your embouchure, which is the position of your mouth, and how it affects your tone. For flute, your embouchure even affects the octave of the music you’re playing. A flute teacher can help correct issues before they become bad habits.

Because the flute is so popular, most school bands ...
