My teaching starts with a good foundation for sound and technique and expands to teach music that is fin and inspiring to each individual student.

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 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.

When we were searching for the right clarinet teacher, it was important to find not just a teacher, but a professional musician. Bill was the right guy for the job.

My daughter Lili had been playing for four years and Bill stepped in with techniques that really took her musicianship to the next level. He is patient, organized and, per Lili, "A dope dude."

Bill has helped Lili with music that she is working on for marching and concert band at school while creating customized warm ups specifically for her. During the pandemic he has been flexible with his schedule, generous with his time and has kept Lili motivated in her music and on track while her school bands have had a hard time playing together.

He is a pro who is communicative, responsive, and punctual for all of the lessons.

I highly recommend Bill as a teacher. He and his band put on a pretty good show as well!
Franck
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!

Sue is patient and extremely knowledgeable about music and flutes. She has an easy going personality and I feel very comfortable learning under her guidance.
Beth
I can't say enough great things about Sue! Under her guidance, it's been a pleasure getting back into playing my flute after a hiatus of over 25 years. Her knowledge of the instrument and expert instruction (as well as her infinite patience!) continue to provide me with the motivation I've needed to overcome some of the challenges I've faced after being away from my instrument for so long. Her teaching style is relaxed and flexible but firm; she knows just when I need to be challenged and just when to back away a bit. She's been a great fit for me, and I encourage other flute players of all levels to giver her a try!
Rina
Dr. Sue Sheya is truly an exceptional instructor. As a student who studied a little bit of music in Europe, it was difficult for me to adjust to the American solfege system (C, D, E scale) as I was used to the European solfege (Do, Re, Mi). However, Dr. Sheya was very flexible and adjusted all her lesson materials so that I could truly succeed in learning. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a supportive, friendly, and enthusiastic teacher that can truly guide them in learning how to play the flute!
