I have a background in classical, jazz and popular music. I have played flute for over 20 years in every context, from orchestra to marching band to CBGB. I have performed with vocal ensembles of every size and in every style. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons focus on range and stability. My style is very casual and I am happy to work on details.

Although I am primarily a saxophonist, flute is a secondary instrument that most saxophonists also have to know how to play. As a performer it is an absolute necessity that I be able to double on the flute and be just as proficient.
My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.
I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and

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. 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 ...

My name is Erika and music has always been an essential part of my life! As soon as the cliche dream of becoming an astronaut was out of my mind, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music- my dream was to become a professional pit orchestra musician on Broadway. I attended Ithaca College and received my bachelors degree in music education and saxophone performance, where I quickly learned that I enjoyed teaching as much as performing! I loved conducting high school band and teaching private and group instrumental lessons. I was a member of the pit orchestra in several collegiate and professional musical productions, as well as the alto saxophone player of Zephyr Saxophone Quartet. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing ping pong, taking pictures and exploring new ...
