I think the flute can produce such beautiful and colorful sounds and is a tool for great expression. Therefore, in lessons, covering all the basics of proper tone production, breath support, vibrato, musicality and technique will ensure a solid foundation with which even the highest levels of success can be built upon. I teach these concepts through the use of various exercises, etude/method books, as well as duet books which are incredibly essential for musical development and are also fun!

Bill is a wonderful saxophone and clarinet teacher for my two sons. He's currently working with my older son to prepare for a clarinet audition. The process of preparing for the audition showed me some important qualities about Bill: 1) he goes above and beyond for his students (e.g. he recorded my son's solo piece in various tempos to help with practice); 2) he's flexible in making time for his students based on their needs; and 3) he's supportive and likable. My younger son, who took 4 saxophone lessons from Bill, mentioned Bill as one of the reasons for picking the instrument for band next year. I highly recommend Bill.

When we were searching for the right clarinet teacher, it was important to find not just a teacher, but a professional musician. Bill was the right guy for the job.

My daughter Lili had been playing for four years and Bill stepped in with techniques that really took her musicianship to the next level. He is patient, organized and, per Lili, "A dope dude."

Bill has helped Lili with music that she is working on for marching and concert band at school while creating customized warm ups specifically for her. During the pandemic he has been flexible with his schedule, generous with his time and has kept Lili motivated in her music and on track while her school bands have had a hard time playing together.

He is a pro who is communicative, responsive, and punctual for all of the lessons.

I highly recommend Bill as a teacher. He and his band put on a pretty good show as well!

Bill is the real deal! The reviews were dead on. Bill is a superstar instructor. He is energetic, engaging, and an amazing teacher who knows the instrument. You will make great progress. I highly recommend him!

Keeping the performing arts active and alive in my community has always been important to me. I strive to encourage creativity and to help my students flourish by nurturing their musical gift with proven teaching techniques. My teaching model is that of the traditional lesson structure, where I dedicate the first 15 minutes of an hour to learning warm up techniques, scales and music theory. I then focus on an etude to further develop the flute playing techniques needed to play an involved piece of music. The final 30 minutes are spent working on whatever piece of music my student has selected. I often let my student's choose the music they feel most connected to and excited about however, I will also choose for them to ensure they learn what are considered the "flute standards" in repertoire. The traditional lesson style helps to maintain structure within a lesson time frame but I am also flexible and will deviate to focus on areas my students may need extra time on.

Michelle has an extraordinary talent. My fiancé and I contacted her to play our wedding ceremony and reception music after I heard Michelle play a solo piece at a winter concert I attended this December. UNBELIEVABLE! We knew we HAD to have her play our music, as we were looking for a more whimsical, classical vibe for the music, rather than the ordinary “press play and hear covers of different songs” vibe.
The way she connects with the music is like something I’ve never seen before. I would highly recommend Michelle for any event that you are looking to host. She also mentioned she conducts lessons-although I am not a musician myself, I believe she would be an excellent teacher!
Gail Allard
Michelle is a fine flut teacher. She is knowledgeable, accomplished in her own performance, passionate about the craft of playing, and flexible in accommodating the non-traditional student. As an adult student with previous performance experience, I especially appreciate her willingness and ability to fine tune my current level of performance and keep me on my toes with new material and techniques. I strongly recommend Michelle as a flute teacher for any level of learner.

It took some trial and error for Katrina ... but she broke through to my daughter and now she loves the flute and can't stop practicing.

"Tony is a great instructor for serious students of clarinet, flute or saxophone. My daughter started with him as a regular 8th grade flute player - not bad, but not great either. Over the course of three years, she has progressed to the point where she made regionals as a sophomore and junior (1st chair orchestra as a junior), and also made all-state as a junior.

My daughter needs a patient and consistent type of teacher, and after a couple of months, Tony and Natalia were working together quite well, as her progress has shown. Of course, Natalia put in the the practice time as well, as she is not quite a musical prodigy, so she has had to work. Tony has supported her all along and been flexible with lessons and time as needed for upcoming events.

My son took saxophone lessons for the last 3 years as well. While quite talented, he doesn't like to work and focus on his music, so he only just almost regional 3 years in a row. That's not really Tony's fault, as he tried to show my son how to get the most out of his practice time, but regardless of talent, music takes work.

I'd gladly give Tony 5 stars for clarinet, as that is his principal instrument, and he is a great clarinetist, but my kids took flute and saxophone from him, which are instruments he doubles on professionally. However, Tony is an honest person, and he would let you know when the time comes for a change to a higher level professional on the secondary instruments. Most students will not ever get there, although it could happen for students planning to make a profession of musical performance."
