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.

My son was very happy with his first lesson with Victoria. He had been away from the flute for several months, and was eager to return. So far she accessed his level, and they picked up where he left off with his previous lessons. He's pleased and says that she is teaching him at his learning edge.
Megan J.
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!!

Victoria is a very sweet, patient teacher.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

An experienced educator specializing in student-focused lessons. Not every method will work for every student, therefore I will seek to customize the lessons to the students. My goal is to guide the students in reaching their goals and helping them enjoy the process. My skill areas are classical training, music theory, sight-reading, playing with expression, rhythms, ensemble playing, error correction, and preparing for performance. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Questions are welcome.

Gwen is a fantastic teacher! Several years ago, my then 3rd grader joined Gwen's homeschool one day a week for science, PE, field trips and recorder lessons. My daughter had a fabulous time! Gwen really is one of the best, most well-rounded homeschool teachers I know and is capable of integrating beyond these specific subjects she teaches. She really listens to your goals, concerns and needs and is creative in coming up with solutions... All so your child can learn most effectively!

Gwen did a fantastic job of teaching my struggling writer annotating literature and writing. She answered all of his questions, and gave advice when he struggled to understand the content. Her consistently positive attitude and outlook was a real encouragement to him.

I have been playing flute professionally for over eight years. My first performance was a production of "Chicago," and it opened up opportunities to play multiple woodwinds in all kinds of contexts.
I am excited to share my passion for this beautiful instrument!

Michael is an excellent teacher and he was so patient with my daughter (5th grade). She was way ahead of the other students in her class and he found additional music for her to learn so she wasn't bored.
Suzette
When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him.

My teaching philosophy is to inspire, educate, and guide my students towards their musical goals and dreams. My job as an educator is to provide the necessary information, advice, and inspiration to students who wish to improve their skills on flute and increase their potential for musical expression. Students who choose to learn how to play flute vary greatly in age, educational and cultural backgrounds. I recognize that every student is different and may require a unique teaching approach. In the past, I have worked privately with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students (children and adults), international students with little or no English skills, undergraduate and graduate flute majors (at The Peabody Conservatory of Music), and taught Class Flute and Flute Ensemble (at the State University of New York at Fredonia and University of Nevada- Las Vegas, respectively). These teaching experiences helped me to develop my own educational methods that I improved over the years. I ...

Anastasia is an amazing musician and teacher. Her playing is inspiring, with perfect technique and the best use of tone, color and phrasing that I have ever heard from a flute.

I am am adult learner, a former music education major returning to music after a long break. I love to learn and value great teachers. I have been blessed to have a handful of great teacher for many of the things I have learned in life.

I knew my first lesson that Anastasia is a wonderful teacher. Within minutes of beginning to play for her, she identified several of the areas that I have struggled with for years. She came up with solutions and helped me begin making progress immediately.

As a very busy working adult, I appreciate that we always have a good lesson and I finish each lesson knowing that I am taking away something of value. Anastasia has tailored my lessons for what I need at this point in my musical journey, and has helped me to enjoy playing. I count it as one of the blessings in my life that I found Anastasia as a teacher.
Aza T.
Anastasia is a very talented flutist and an equally talented instructor. She was very targeted in her approach, set learning expectations and focused on growth and improvement. She was flexible with scheduling changes and working with my daughter's band director's specific music selections. She is also very kind and gentle in her approach. My daughter loves working with her.
Timothy Hoft
Anastasia is an exceptional flutist, musician, and teacher. A well-trained flutist herself, she understands very well how to train musicians from the beginning stages to the most advanced levels. She is very patient, kind, and gives all of her students the attention they deserve. Anastasia studied in Moscow, Russia, and then earned college degrees at the Peabody Conservatory and UCLA. Her diverse educational history provided her with a unique set of abilities and is able to adapt to any type of student. Highly recommended!

"An engaging and wonderful instructor

I have been extremely fortunate to have had Bonnie McAlvin teaching flute, piccolo and music theory to my older daughter for nine years and flute to my younger daughter for four. She is an enthusiastic and energetic teacher that inspires a great love of musicianship in her students. My older daughter is a first chair flutist in a wind ensemble and plays with a prestigious children's orchestra entirely due to the patient and thorough instruction she has received from Bonnie. It is a great blessing to have musically talented children but an even bigger blessing to have an instructor who can give them the skills and encouragement to achieve excellence. My older daughter is working towards attending a conservatory for college and the younger daughter fully expects to have music be part of her education going forward. This is entirely due to Bonnie's influence and guidance. We could not be more pleased. My girls love their lessons with Bonnie and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
