*** Lesson Details ***
All my lessons are centered on where the student is in his/hers musical development. I will in the first few lessons, assess the student's level and then proceed to recommend a course of study. I am process driven and always try to have my students understand my method so I do try to explain all my reasoning regarding the course of study I prescribe. Every student is different so I approach each individual with total respect for their unique ability and talent.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Northwestern University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 8 years to 9, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before Flute, Clarinet or Saxophone.

*** Specialties ***
I am a certified Orff Teacher so I use process centered approach even in private lessons.

From the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys.

About Adrienne
"So Russell, what do you love about music?"

"To begin with...everything."

One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movie, Almost Famous.

I'll spare you the snooze worthy details of my background, which is probably similar to everyone's profile on here. Instead I'll highlight what sets me apart.

Broad Music Style and Interest - On any given day, I can listen to, perform, practice, or play everything from the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys

Extensive Training - I studied with the Principal Harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and have performed with the prestigious Curtis Symphony Orchestra

Focused but Fun - I keep students on task but have a light hearted, humorous approach to teaching.

Communicative - I'm available 24/7 (well, minus the hours I'm sleeping) if you have any questions during your practice durin
g the week. I accept text messages and videos. I support you at all times!

References and Experience - I've been teaching for over 10 years and believe I have a fresh approach to an outdated teaching method.

Adrienne is a professional teacher with stunning credentials! My previous harp teacher highly recommended her to me to continue my studies as a therapeutic harpist. She has a beautiful performance style and a great personality. Her teaching skills are amazing. In 6 months, she has improved my tone, timing, and technique so much that people at my facilities are inviting me to play at their events. And that is the proof. Thank you Adrienne!

What a great first lesson! I chose Adrienne for a harp teacher because of her description, "From the Beatles, to Bach, to the Beastie Boys..." I'm a classically trained guitarist, full-time guitar teacher, and contemporary guitar/vocal performer. I bought a Celtic harp last spring, thought maybe I could learn via Youtube videos. Nope. Not enough good instruction, not enough motivation. I was thrilled to find that Adrienne is BIG on technique, as I am with my guitar students. She was so encouraging throughout our Take Lessons Classroom session! I have a lot of practicing to do before next week's lesson, and I am so psyched!

About Thomas K.

Profile_43594_pi_IMG_2692-2
Glendale, CA

View Full Profile

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

A woodwind player since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning flute lessons.

About Thomas
Piano, woodwinds, trumpet, composition
Chords, sight-reading, theory, jazz, classical, and pop

No one ever regrets learning an instrument… yet many grow old wishing they had taken music lessons! A talent they’ll be able to develop their entire life, your children will thank you for giving them the chance to learn music. And bonus points for you: after just a couple years, you’ll have free entertainment every Christmas!

Or maybe YOU’RE the one that wishes to learn! It is never too late to begin learning an instrument. Everybody has the ability, and if you’re determined and interested, there’s nothing stopping us from achieving this very special goal. (Interested in learning to compose? Scroll to the bottom to learn more.)

Everybody learns differently, and everybody likes different things. Whether it’s improvising or singing alon
gside a song you love or reading through a classical concerto, I’ll help prepare you or your child to tackle a wide variety of styles, without missing out on any of the basics that turn good players into phenomenal musicians. We all know it’s not about being the best. It’s about having fun, and playing music well is definitely fun. Music lessons include:

1. Building a really strong foundation so it's easy to interpret or understand any part, and to play it with the right amount of practice.

2. Learning to sight-read music, so you can play it well as soon as possible.

3. Learning how to improvise (make-up) music, learn music by ear, and to understand and create chords, which lets you play music in different ways.

4. Play different styles from classical to jazz to popular music.

5. Learning how to practice efficiently so you can learn music as fast as possible.

6. Composing our own original music.

Practice makes perfect! Learning an instrument helps build self-confidence and discipline. If your child’s bored, distracted, or just needs a constructive hobby, music is a great place to get them interested in something that will help them feel better about themselves, and the effects will be felt across everything else they do, through better studying habits to a more patient, diligent work ethic.

It’s also relaxing! Stressed about work? Need an escape? Everybody has the power to learn an instrument. Seriously, there’s no such thing as “talent.” Just start lessons and get practicing! It really is that simple, and I’ll guide you through every step of the way.

I have a diverse background teaching students of all ages, from 3-year-olds to retirees alike, customizing what we learn to the individual student. We’ll learn how to read music just as easily as you read words; improvise and compose music of our own; and feel good playing any style: classical, jazz, rock, and all. My experience as a working musician in films, musical theater, and pop music, as well as classical concert music, allows me to appreciate and teach styles that many other instructors overlook, and I know full well that learning an instrument is not about becoming a professional; it’s about being able to connect to others or oneself through music… and also to just have fun! There’s no need to learn music we don’t like! It’s not about stuffing Beethoven into your kids’ ears… we just want to make music, be that Beethoven or Billy Joel.

Learning an instrument is one of those few skills that will genuinely last you your whole life. I don’t want to sugarcoat it: it takes time to learn an instrument. It takes practice, and sometimes it’s frustrating. But the results are well worth it.

Now get out there and make some music! But start by signing up for lessons. I can’t wait to get started!

---

“What’s that chord?” “Why does all my music sound the same?” “How do I fix this voicing?” “I just can’t get it out of my head!” …sound familiar? You’ve probably hit a rut. Or maybe you’re just starting out. Either way, you want your music to sound new, exciting, and to come out exactly how you hear it in your head. Yes… you CAN learn to compose music, you CAN learn to be more creative, and you CAN learn to share your sound with the world.

Film music, classical, jazz… whatever your interest, all music comes from the same place, and by learning a handful of basic concepts, you can apply these to whatever style you’re trying to write. Learning to emulate another musician involves knowing what they’re doing. Learning to create a groundbreaking sound requires that you know what’s already been done, and how to achieve it. Step by step, we’ll work our way there.

We’ll learn how to write cool, interesting chord progressions, how to write beautiful melodies, and how to voice chords. We’ll learn how to control the mood of our music, from making it sound relaxed to adding tension wherever we want. Maybe you’re trying to write for an orchestra, or just a small band. By learning the basics, you can then easily break away from what’s been done and come up with something truly new… the goal of any aspiring composer!

My philosophy is to help the students focus on their mental and physical states while practicing and performing. If both their body and mind are relaxed when playing, they will accomplish more and be happier with their performance!

I have been taking private flute lessons for over 14 years and have experienced many different teaching styles and philosophies. I began teaching my own private lessons six years ago, and since then I have learned a lot about helping students progress quickly and efficiently.

Each in person lesson will begin with a duet so that I can evaluate the student's progress since their last lesson. Every online lesson will begin with a warm up. We will proceed to discuss their practicing and what the student believes is working for them and what they are struggling with. I can then address any issues or concerns that they have throughout the lesson.

Students will be asked to study technical and tonal exercises as well as repertoire. I will help the student ...

Michel Dew is an absolutely wonderful teacher. I asked her to teach me as an adult student and I have to say with Michel’s guidance “Old Dogs” really can learn new tricks. She was able to get me to produce a tone that I never dreamed could come from me. Not only is she great with her adult and young adult students, but she also has an incredible way with young children. I’ve had many first hand experiences observing her with kids and she is incredibly caring, nurturing, experienced, and fun. Her passion and knowledge of music shines through in her teaching. I am lucky to have her as a teacher.

I have experience teaching flute lessons to everyone from ages 5 to adult and from complete beginners to aspiring professionals. My students have won local competitions and been admitted to the music programs at universities such as UNT. I like to make sure that each student's practice comes from a place of mutual respect and understanding and I emphasize clear communication in practice expectations as well as when explaining playing concepts. I am a patient teacher and questions are encouraged!

About Cassie
I am an active teacher and performer newly returned to the Seattle area after a decade away. I have a BM from the University of Oregon and an MM from the University of North Texas, both concentrated in flute performance.

I recently spent three years in Texas and had a studio of 35 middle and high school flutists who under my tutelage improved their skills, gained new appreciation for music, won local competitions (one received a brand new professional flute for her award!) and one received an offer to attend UNT to study music for their undergraduate degree.

I also pursue an active playing career, but I am especially focused on teaching.

Please message me before purchasing lessons! I sometimes travel to student's homes, but not often and I cannot guarantee being able to travel to your address on the day that you would like and
TakeLessons does not encourage messages between you purchasing and me accepting the new lessons. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you/your child meet their flute goals!
