It's fun to learn piccolo skills! Usually students have been playing the flute for awhile before adding the piccolo, but I have had players who only want to have lessons on the piccolo as well. I keep it relaxed and flexible while working at your level of ability.

About Michelle

My name is Michelle and I have been teaching flute lessons for all ages for over 20 years. Currently, I have students who range in age from 7 to 75, and I really enjoy the variety that brings. I love to start beginners off, to make sure their body posture, tone production and technique are correct,

Very helpful and gave me great advice on how to improve my technique. Thank you very much.
Cathy F.
My son started his on line flute lesson with Michelle during pandemic period. At first, I think he probably could not stay longer since boys always have 5 minutes heat. But Michelle made her class interesting, encouraging and easy understanding, my son couldn't wait to have class with her every week. I can feel his technique improved effectively after every class.

For only short 3 months, I was informed he was outgrown from his old book and was capable for upgrading to next level. I am much happier to find Michelle as his flute instructor. Thanks for helping him become more confident, optimistic and diligent.
Alice L.
Michelle is an amazing flute instructor. She is very knowledgeable, encouraging and professional. I have two kids that plays the flute. One is a beginner. Michelle was able to help her play her flute with good tone just after one lesson. My other child was a budding intermediate flute player. Michelle was able to help him take his flute playing to the next level. Both kids enjoy their flute lessons every week. I can’t thank Michelle enough for helping my kids build their flute playing skills and more importantly their self confidence in learning something new. I highly recommend Michelle as an instructor.

As an Arabic native speaker, I tutor the Modern Standard Arabic (formal/classical Arabic) or the colloquial Arabic (conversational Arabic) of Morocco. I can teach you how to speak, read, and/or write Arabic, or Moroccan.
I tutor all levels from beginners, intermediate to advanced. I can help your son study everything from pronunciation to grammar.
I have an abundance of patience. My objective is to make Arabic fun, creative, educational, and friendly.

My method will help to communicate quickly, build confidence and give the motivation to progress rapidly.

I' am familiar with the Arabic Curriculum used by the FCPS World Languages.

I have Alif Baa and Al-Kitaab fii Ta allum al -Arabiyya books.I use the board for writing and I give homework to help you practice between our lessons.

If you need immediate assistance for a test or homework: Quizzes, essay, vocabulary or grammar, I can work for short term as well and assist within very short notice.

Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

"Ms. Arlys is a great teacher! She always keeps me engaged and makes all lessons interesting and full of knowledge that I can learn. Additionally, she honed my persuasive speech skills, helping me project my voice, talk in the correct tone of voice, maintain eye contact with my audience, and flow when I speak. I have learned so much with Ms. Arlys and made leaps of improvement in my writing and verbal presentation. She always spends time to take notes for me and during our class so I can review them and understand the key points of each lesson Ms. Arlys has with me."

"I hired Daniel to help my daughter prepare for an assessment test. They only had 2 months to prepare and many of the subjects were being introduced to her for the first time. He had his work cut out for him. But he did a phenomenal job. He methodically organized each subject and proceeded to cover it thoroughly before moving on to the next. He had the right balance of persistence and understanding to keep my daughter stay focused and, at the same time, build up her confidence. I'm happy to report that she ended up passing the exam and she credits him for this result."

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
