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!

Can’t say enough about Bill! He is a great combination of kind/patient and serious. He is a very talented musician, and his enthusiasm for music comes through in his lessons each week. We have really enjoyed Bill, and learned a lot from him as well. HIGHLY recommend!
Lori A.
Bill was very patient and encouraging to my high school daughter who wanted to start learning how to play jazz on her clarinet. She really enjoyed the lessons and the material. She is looking forward to continuing her lessons with Bill once the Marching band season ends.
Janelle T.
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.

I am a professional flutist and educator with 13 years of experience. I believe in teaching musicians to play the right way, the first time. That means developing tone, intonation, and expression at the same time as dexterity and technique. I also believe in teaching with a holistic approach-- lessons will include music theory and aural skills, such as scales practice, learning accompaniment, and exposure to different genres of music that can develop an extended technique. Finally, I believe in safe playing-- focusing on posture and breathing that develops good habits and reduces risk of back pain and carpal tunnel. Lessons are uniquely tailored to the individual, with a variety of exercises to help develop your playing and reach your full potential.

About Victoria

Before I started playing the flute, I was painfully shy, and I rarely spoke to classmates. Music ended up being what helped me find my voice-- literally. I didn't just develop musical skills, but I developed confidence. Now, I can proudly perform in front of massive audiences and the best musicians
