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.
Guidance is crucial if one is looking to improve on their skills at a consistent and more rapid pace. Jillian has taught flute lessons since the age of 15 and has help students achieve their goals whether large or small. She focuses on the following areas:
· Technique building (Scales, arpeggios, finger exercises, relaxation techniques)
· Tone Producing (long tones, harmonics, vibrato)
· Musical Interpretation / Improvisation
· Literature Learning (All different genres: classical, baroque, impressionistic, contemporary, jazz)
*** Specialties *** Classical, Jazz, Latin and Building Fundamentals
I specialize in youth and young adult teaching, but am open to new adult students or those looking to improve their tone and technique as well.
I have a background in classical symphony and wind ensemble music. I have played the flute and piccolo for 13 years, graduated from the Visual and Performing Arts Academy out of Elgin IL in 2007 and received the Arion award for musicianship. My experience in teaching private lessons has been primarily with beginner to intermediate level players, who either would like to learn for the first time, or that currently play in an ensemble and would benefit from one on one focused study. I currently play with the Citywide Symphony in Chicago and also perform private events, such as weddings, in addition to teaching.
Whatever your learning curve, I expect your personal best at all times.
Need a teacher who caters to your learning style? That's my specialty! Since I hold numerous freelance jobs, I have worked under a number of odd circumstances playing a variety of styles (and even instruments!). I have earned both a Bachelor's and Master's of Music in flute performance--both from DePaul University, and have studied and performed with many well-respected orchestral and freelance performers. My resume and references are available upon request. *** Lesson Details *** I emphasize solid tone and technique as a foundation for playing, but always encourage musicality and finding your own voice within a piece. You'll often find me asking you "how did you feel about that performance?" in lessons, so you can begin to identify and troubleshoot your own habits ...
I began teaching flute lessons privately in May of 2014. I currently have four flute students from 4th to 8th grade. My 8th grade student recently played in the ILMEA Honor Band. My teaching goals vary from student to student based on the student's age, skill level, personal goals, and interests. I select specific lesson books and materials during our first lesson together. Overall, l aim to teach my students more about music and about the flute in order to become better musicians. I love working with students of all ages and levels!
FLUTE AND OTHER INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of St. Francis. As a requirement for my degree, I have been able to learn various instruments of all the different instrument families. However, my primary instrument is flute, which I have been playing for almost 15 years. I started taking private lessons 5th grade. I received four years of formal university flute instruction from highly regarded flute instructors. I have taught flute students ranging from third grade to twelfth grade. One of my secondary instruments is piano. I received four years of college instruction for piano. With my training and playing experience, I am sure to be able to help you improve throughout our lessons! DANCE LESSONS I was a dancer for 12 years and
I use a curriculum that incorporates traditional books of study along with books in the style of music that is of interest to the student. Instruction includes these areas of focus:
Playing by ear
I am a music professional that will help you expand your musical talents, study the basics and learn to play the type of music you enjoy! I utilize a well-rounded teaching approach that includes Note Reading, Theory, Technique, and Performance. I keep my students engaged through a curriculum that is fun, creative and designed to provide a well based understanding of music while playing a variety of musical styles that include classical, standards, blues, and rock. I am a graduate of Winona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree for Music in Depth and have over 30 years of teaching/playing experience. I also serve as a Music Director for the 1st Presbyterian Church of Itasca where I provide music for weekly church services and lead the choral and hand bell choirs.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
