We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students.

We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.

Stephanie is an exceptional instructor! So grateful I found her!

I started taking flute lessons with Stephanie last September 2016. I have been playing flute since 2011 and play regularly at church. I take a hour long lesson. I have really enjoyed taking lessons from her. She has also been willing to adjust to my schedule, when she could, when work won’t allow me to make it to my normal lesson.
I had been taking lessons from another flute teacher since 2011 and knew it was time to change. Stephanie has always been able to help me. She is very knowledgeable about all questions and problems I was having on playing the flute or reading music. When questioning a technique she is able to demonstrate it or explain it in a different way so I could understand it. I’ve always had trouble with the high notes and alternate fingering and she definitely has helped me on those. Stephanie personally is a lot more enjoyable than my last teacher. She always seems happy to see me.
I also play Low Flutes and just bought my first Bass Flute. She also plays low flutes.

My 1-on-1 artist business coaching starts with mapping out goals for your dreams, then breaking everything down into manageable chunks based on your unique strengths and skill set, and helping you stay accountable along the way, without any guilt or shaming.

I will equip you with the tools needed to get exposure and influence in your industry: branding, digital marketing, public relations, competitive benchmarking, social media marketing, distribution, pitching, booking, promotion, and much more.

These tools are valuable for artists, but they also apply if you’re a professional looking to become a more sought-after expert, or an online business owner looking to get more traffic.

Having been in the navy for over 4 years and doing 1:1 tutor for over 5 years in various subjects has taught me a unique balance of high standards and empathy that has helped me navigate the most trying times in life with calm and consistency, without getting overly stressed or anxious, or being too

Albert is willing to go the extra mile to structure a lesson plan that met my specific exam goals. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Matt
Albert did a great job working with my high school son. Despite his quiet demeanor, after the very first lesson, he mapped the most efficient plan to get my son help, asking questions that were straight to the point. Ever since, he won’t allow my son to digress from that path set, and it has seen phenomenal results!

Albert is a great Algebra tutor. He's clear, thorough, and breaks the concepts down into smaller, easier to grasp chunks. Highly recommend!

I have been playing for 14 years, but am young enough to remember (and still feel!) the struggles of practicing and playing the flute. In addition, having taken 7 years of Music Theory and Ear Training at music conservatories, I can provide a great way for beginners to learn to read music as well as to hear it.

As a Suzuki teacher trained with the SAA, I have studied effective teaching methods that work for students of all ages and levels.

I will incorporate these aspects into your lessons:
-scales/technique
-articulation
-tone
-intonation
-vibrato
-rhythm
-musicality/being inspired
-how to practice/practice methods

Happy flute playing! :)

I am able to teach Flute at 4 locations:
- My Home Studio
- West 13th Street (Mannes School of Music)
- Your Home

He is also fun, so he would be an excellent teacher especially for the young students. My son is 11 yr and he started picking things up from the first lesson. We would recommend Troy for beginners interested in becoming better trumpet players."
