Flute, Music Theory
I have been playing the flute since fifth grade, a long time! I have taught flute privately for about twenty years.
My second degree is an AA in Music from Grossmont College, near San Diego, CA. As a flutist I have been a member of both the La Jolla Civic Orchestra and the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra.
Since 1989 I have been the principal flute and a soloist with the San Diego Concert Band. In that group I regularly lead flute sectional rehearsals.
Since 2007, I have been a flute coach every summer at San Diego's Band at the Beach music camp for junior high and high school students.
I have taught students from ages 5 to 80 and have good rapport with every age.
*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a casual, easy-going, caring person, and I enjoy establishing a unique working relationship with each student.
In teaching I employ a personal, individual, flexible approach, to give my students each what benefits him/her the most. I emphasize proper technique, beauty of tone, musical interpretation, and enjoyment. Music theory is intertwined with the instruction. And we play lots of duets!
I also play the piano, thus sometimes accompany my flute students.
