No need to be nervous before my lessons. My lessons have a comfortable atmosphere where students can be okay with learning with mistakes; through trial and error. I always keep a light mood with quick bits of humor. I teach in a relaxing way, but at the same time you may expect to leave with new musical knowledge every lesson. I enjoy showing the connections between music and other areas of study and life. I always finds ways to work a student's personal interests into lessons. I always strive to help students learn how to practice in an efficient and organized way.
I am a published composer and active performer/teacher/conductor with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Conducting!
Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano
I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Reading
I am a flutist, keyboardist, vocalist, director, composer, arranger, and educator who has performed in chamber ensembles specializing in Baroque repertoire since 1998. I have over twenty years of professional flute and piano performance as well as instruction on those instruments to my credit. My studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison covered the theoretical, historical, and performing aspects of music. My coursework in Madison led me to researching the secular cantatas of Christoph Graupner in Darmstadt, Germany on a Fulbright.
In addition to interest in performing newly-composed music for traverso and harpsichord, my recent work with many different people as a church music director has led me back to a want to teach full time. Helping students of any age learn to play the flute, recorder, fife, traverso (baroque flute), or piano as well as furthering knowledge in sight-reading, improvisation, and history is the goal. Additionally, I want to help music students of all ages find other people just as passionate about music with whom they could collaborate.
I look forward to working with you.

My lesson formats are tailored to the individual student. There are many different kinds of learning styles out there, and I try to use what I've found to be the most efficient approach and then form it to the student's needs. I have experience with various published methods, preferring to work with the Rubank method books with other supplemental solo and etudes for later use for my flute students, and I prefer the Adventures in Piano and Wonderkeys methods for piano. (Please note that, if you have a particular method or publication you wish to continue, I have successfully adapted my teaching plan to many and can do so for you as well.) I have experience working with students with challenges such as ADD and autism. Though my approach is laid back, I cover a lot of ground. In this way, we can work together to get you playing a melody with a fairly wide range (on flute) or a simple piece with hands together in a reasonable time. I can also help with learning basic improvisation, sight-reading, ear-training, and other helpful music theory skills.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in music room, digital piano, music stand, chairs.
*** Travel Equipment ***
At times, I can bring new books for purchase, or sight-reading materials. I expect the flute student to have a flute, a music stand, a 3-ring binder, and music for the lesson. I expect the piano student to have an instrument at home on which to practice, and should bring a 3-ring binder and music for the lesson.
*** Specialties ***
I consider myself a good all-purpose flute teacher, but I do specialize in baroque style and ornamentation. If I inherit a student who has already studied with someone else, and s/he is on a budget, I will work with whatever method they have already purchased. I prefer the Rubank books for starting out with flute students because it covers the various keys more equally, so students don't get stuck in playing only in Bb Major. I adapt them to the age and learning style of the student to make it easier to learn. It will be likely that I will begin offering fife-to-flute lessons for the younger ones, for whom the flute is too big. Future plans include getting certified in Suzuki flute instruction, so watch for that!
In addition to teaching regular piano/keyboard lessons, I also offer Wunderkeys lessons. Wunderkeys is an approach for piano lessons for preschoolers. I am passionate about chamber music. Getting a chance to get people to work together by playing music together is such a wonderful opportunity.
