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 very friendly and works very well with my 12 year old son. My son has absolutely NO musical background and now can play simple tunes such as Mary had a little lamb and other nursery rhymes in just 3 sessions..

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.
Roberta M. Brooklyn, NY

In my studio, I believe that my role is to steer students toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their instrument, and their relationship to music. I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 7 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students€™ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for one€™s creativity.

About Roberta

Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Review said she “riveted with her performance, inspiring one to want a repeated hearing.” Roberta is a founding member of the Cadillac Moon Ensemble, a quartet of unusual instrumentation dedicated to commissioning and performing new works. To date, the group has commissioned over fifty pieces. Roberta holds a Bachelor of Music with highest honors from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Master of Music from SUNY-Purchase College, and Doctor of Musical Arts from the City University of New York ...

Roberta is the best!

Roberta is a super intelligent and adaptable teacher who is especially skilled at pacing her lessons and breaking things down into digestible bits for the ultra-beginner player. She is the best!

Roberta is an excellent instructor, per the fuller review that follows this summry.

I come to the flute late in life, though with a background in Celtic music on simpler wind instruments. Roberta has guided me skillfully and with compassionate direction since I embarked on my flute journey. She is helping me make the transition from folk instruments to the flute in as painless a manner as is likely to be possible. I look forward to each lesson and am highly motivated to practice in order to continue to derive the full benefits of Roberta's considerable knowledge, wisdom, artistry and instructional skill. When a particular element of a lesson goes well, it is sometimes hard to tell who is the most delighted--the student or the teacher.

Roberta has re-invigorated my daughter's interest in playing flute!

My daughter switched to learning with Roberta after 2 years of flute lessons, and the difference now that she is learning with Roberta has been amazing. With her warmth and enthusiasm, Roberta inspires and encourages my daughter to continuously improve, and my daughter has finally started enjoying playing flute again. I am very happy with the rate at which my daughter is progressing, with her lessons having an equal emphasis on technical skill and musicality.

David B. New York, 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. *** Lesson Details *** I address all aspects of fundamental flute technique through ...

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.

Great guy and a great player.

David is a superb woodwinds player who really knows his stuff. Really easy going guy with tons of information to share. As a friend and colleague of his, I highly recommend him to any aspiring musician of any age. He also has an amazing collection of instruments!

My daughter has had only two lessons with Simona but the benefit is easy to see. There is a passion for excellence that is being instilled but keeping the lessons fun. This is hard to accomplish but Simona is doing it. She has been very cooperative and helpful in scheduling lessons. It has been a pleasure so far and I look forward to great reviews in the future. I highly recommend this teacher!
