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!

Flute lessons focus on posture, breath control, theory, and performance in all genres of music.
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. ...
I've been teaching flute for over 10 years. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of flute skills.
Emphasis will be placed on performing the flute most naturally and using the least amount of effort, with a special attention to the basic principles of the ‘Alexander Technique,’ which professional musicians use to perform. Students will also have a tool to improve their breath control available during their lessons.
I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
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
How to improve technique (e.g. fingering, vibrato, tonguing, )
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 ...

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.
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.

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.
