A classically-trained flutist, Nadia has been teaching flute for many years. A summa cum laude graduate of New York University in Music Performance, she excels at teaching students how to play flute in a way that emphasizes body awareness and comfort in positioning and holding the flute. Nadia also emphasizes whole musicianship in her lessons, incorporating theory and other elements of music into lessons to facilitate a deeper understanding of the music. She is a friendly, encouraging and dedicated teacher who aims to teach each student according to his or her needs and interests. See you in class! :)

I teach a classically structured flute lesson that is engaging and fun! In the early years I usually work from the Rubank method series with supplemental repertoire from all periods. My teaching focuses on tone quality, rhythmic accuracy, technical facility and repertoire development. Previous students have won honors in state-wide competitions, chair competitions and positions in regional music ensembles.
