With my 15 years of experience and a Bachelor's and Master's degree in flute performance, you can expect lessons from me to be the highest quality. I have years of experience teaching dozens of flutists of all ages, and I make sure to adjust my teaching to the needs of each individual student. Everybody is different, so I want to make sure students get the most out of their experience! Young beginners will begin in methods such as Patricia George's "Flute 101" series or Kathleen Blocki's flute method series, while intermediate and advanced players will have a more comprehensive approach with studies in tone development, technique enhancement, etudes, and solo repertoire.

In the few months that I've had flute lessons with Drew, I've grown so much. As a beginner in flute, I was completely scared and overwhelmed with taking band for the first time. Knowing I needed lessons, I'm so glad that I was paired with Drew. On my first lesson, Drew asked me what my goals were and I told him that it was to just simply read the notes on the page. That's all I expected to learn from him, but he taught me so much more! Drew taught me about musical expression, tone and all the little details behind flute playing. His teachings challenged and motivated me. My peers and band teacher have noticed my improvement and progress. Thanks to Drew, I can now play with confidence and poise. -Emma

I've been teaching beginning flute for over 30 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to assemble your instrument, make a sound on the head joint, and know where your fingers go. As time goes on you'll be able to read music and play simple songs. Any beginning flute book will get us started. In addition to your flute and book, you will also need a cleaning swab. As you progress, a a metronome may be helpful. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

I believe in teaching strong fundamentals so that we can have a solid foundation to build on. Good tone and an understanding of embouchure are most important, and we will develop technique. I enjoy helping students achieve their goals and develop their talents.

Victoria is a fantastic teacher. I am an adult who picked up the flute some years ago. This year I decided to be disciplined and seek out a teacher. I started to see a difference in my ability immediately. After around 6 months I can say that I am further along than I ever thought I would be. She's respectful and a lot of fun. Sign up and go see her already!!

As a parent of a flute student, I observed Michelle teach on numerous occasions. She was always prompt and well organized. She individualized her instruction to meet student needs and used a variety of materials. Her attitude was always positive and supportive. She appropriately motivates student improvement. I highly recommend her as a teacher for children or adults.

After I retired I wanted to explore my love of music by learning the flute. Michelle’s clear and concise instructions along with her caring and positive attitudes and extensive knowledge, enabled me to become more proficient playing the flute than I thought possible. Very enjoyable and worthwhile experience!

I've been playing the flute most of my life and studied with a few of the best flute professors in the country. I have been teaching privately for 7 years. My teaching style is very flexible, though I expect dedication and hard work from my students. As my student you will learn not only flute, but you will gain a general knowledge of music theory and harmony, knowledge of musical phrasing and interpretation, as well as proper movement and body alignment similar to Alexander techniques.

Students can expect to develop strong foundational skills in areas of tone, finger technique, articulation, musical expression, and physiological aspects of playing, which they will then learn to apply in etudes and repertoire. A student's repertoire will be determined both by student input and teacher recommendation in order to maximize both student enjoyment and musical development. In each lesson, students can expect fun and quirky analogies as well as possible interruptions by a cat.

"Sue's teaching methods are multiple - level. She is inspiring and playful. She is my third music instrument teacher (after 8 years of piano & another 8 years of violin lesson), I learned something brand new about flute and music principles.

Her rate is extremely reasonable especially considering how professional and diligent a teacher she is.

I am very grateful to be guided to her when I was looking for a flute teacher."
