Rick was professional, intuitive, and taught what I needed to learn, and NOT some preplanned generic lesson. I highly recommend him and I rarely recommend anything.

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 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!
Charles H.
Bill has a competent, easy manner that makes learning an enjoyable experience.
Micah
I started with Bill almost two years ago and I was at about zero on the piano. He's helped me reach the point where I can play some standards and even improvise a little over them, and I look forward to improving even more. We began in person but the transition to remote lessons has been seamless.

Bill is patient, attentive, and a whole lot of fun to work with. He has a positive attitude and a great sense of humor, and he backs it up with strong motivational skills to keep you practicing and putting in the work to reach your goals.

Oh, and of course, he's got some incredible chops! He's a talented multi-instrumentalist and a beast on the saxophone. His love of music and knowledge of jazz is sure to rub off on you.

David is a great instructor. He can hear what you are doing wrong and tell you how to correct. I am learning Saxophone much faster than I thought possible.
Mark M.
Good first lesson with Dave. He's a great communicator and seemed to understand my level of music experience; he knew the right subjects to linger on, and what information he could skip over, confident that I already knew it. I felt like we were able to cover a lot of ground in 45 short minutes.

Music is so much more than organized notes written on a piece of paper. Music is a beautiful language and powerful phenomenon that should be felt, experienced, and shared daily. I want every student to believe and feel that playing the flute is fun and worth sharing with others! I have been playing the flute for 16 years, have nearly a decade of performance experience, and have experience in private flute instruction. I specialize in teaching beginner flute students, and as your teacher, it is my primary goal to not only help you learn how to produce a lovely sound on your instrument and read music but to encourage a deeper love and appreciation for the music itself that goes beyond the classroom. As you learn to breathe life into your flute and play songs, you will also be building a solid foundation in note reading, music theory, sight-reading, proper technique, and more! All ages are welcome, and lessons will be customized and catered to meet your individual needs and goals. ...

Katie is a wonderful instructor due to her patience and diligence. She takes her time when explaining and gives valuable instructions and advice. I would highly recommend her as an instructor.
Arnie
Katie is one of the most patient and willing individuals I know when it comes to teaching others no matter the subject. She has taught how to read music with uncanny ease. She is teaching herself (and her mother) how to play the Ukulele by note reading. Her flute renderings are fun and soothing to listen to. She never stops working on her knowledge and understanding of music.
maggie
Katie Miller has a wonderful personality, she has a natural ability for teaching. I have dyslexia and trying to learn how to read music has been challenging for me. She has been able to break down music theory with the use of color and other examples that has helped me understand this concept. I’m enjoying learning how to read music.

"Michelle has proven herself to be knowledgeable and helpful in facilitating my return to flute playing after a hiatus of a few years. As an individual having already completed a bachelors and masters degree in flute performance I was looking for someone nearby with the skill, education, and performance experience to help whip me back into shape. Michelle has been able to help me identify and strategize realistic performance goals that take into consideration both my extensive background and my need to re-enter music performance in a low-key way that balances my desire to use music as a creative outlet with having limited time as a parent and professional in a field outside of music. Michelle has given constructive feedback and guidance in using standard flute literature, etudes, and other technical exercises to facilitate me in regaining proper technique and tone production. It has also been a joy to play duets with Michelle and have the chance to practice intonation, musicality, and playing with a high quality musician, as music is meant to be played and shared with others. Having the opportunity to build musicianship in this way with an individual of her caliber has proven beneficial."
