About Roberta
Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Review said she “riveted with her performance, inspiring one to want a repeated hearing.” Roberta is a founding member of the Cadillac Moon Ensemble, a quartet of unusual instrumentation dedicated to commissioning and performing new works. To date, the group has commissioned over fifty pieces.

Roberta holds a Bachelor of Music with highest honors from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Master of Music from SUNY-Purchase College, and Doctor of Musical Arts from the City University of New York Graduate Center. Her teachers include Robert Dick, Tara H
elen O’Connor, Alexa Still, and Jean Rosenblum. Roberta resides in Brooklyn, New York where she teaches privately and is on faculty at Great Neck Music Conservatory.

Roberta has performed with groups including Duo RoMi (with pianist Mirna Lekic), the Portland String Quartet, SEM Ensemble, Wet Ink Ensemble, Argento Chamber Ensemble, Wordless Music Orchestra, Ensemble Moto Perpetuo, Lunatics at Large, Kagel Nacht, Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, Cheyenne Symphony, and the Greeley Philharmonic in venues including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Alice Tulley Hall, Merkin Hall, The Kennedy Center, Bargemusic (with tenor Robert White), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a guest artist, she has appeared at Bloomsburg University and the University of Southern Maine. She has recorded on New Dynamic Records, Meta, Bridge, and Innova Records.

Roberta has been a Bang on a Can Summer Institute fellow and a participant in the Institute and Festival of Contemporary Performance at Mannes College, as well as participating in festivals at Banff and Domaine Forget. Roberta recently won the Artists International Special Presentation Award and was presented in her debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Other awards include: Purchase College’s Baroque Concerto Competition, Bay Chamber Summer Music Woodwind Prize, Dante Alighieri Society of Denver Music Scholarship, and the Emily K. Rand Award.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my studio, I believe that my role is to steer students toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their instrument, and their relationship to music. I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 4 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students’ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for one’s creativity.

With over a decade of teaching and a doctorate in flute performance, I have extensive experience teaching flute lessons and recorder lessons to students from beginners to advanced. I teach at my studio in Brooklyn or can come to your home in New York City. I have previously taught in Colorado, Westchester, NY, and throughout New York City. I've been on faculty at The Harmony Program and the Denver Public School’s Saturday Music Program, where I taught beginning flute classes to public school children. I have given masterclasses at the University of Southern Maine and the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts High School, and have taught music classes at Purchase College and Hostos Community College.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a studio with music stands, flutes, recorders, an upright piano, and place for parents to wait. Street parking is available, and I'm less than a block from the subway.

Students are expected to bring their instrument, music, and a notebook.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my flute. Students need to have a music stand, music, a notebook, and a working instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I am well-versed in all areas of classical music, especially new music. My primary instrument is flute, but I also enjoy teaching beginner piano, recorder, and music theory.

About Jason
Music comes from our souls and is an incredibly passionate form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put their confidence and abilities and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will find in our teacher-student relationship.

I have been teaching acoustic, electric, and bass guitar for 11 years. My passions lie in folk, blues, rock, and indie music, and I love to share that passion with my students in an encouraging and patient environment. Communication is key in a learning environment to ensure that students are working and progressing toward their goals. I have given lessons to students from age 7 through 75, and understand that each student has a unique interest and skill set to be develope
d. Music would be pretty dull if everyone was the same, wouldn't it?

I have been a singer/songwriter out of the Twin Cities for the past 11 years and have played in venues all over the world. These include coffee shops, events, and churches in Minnesota and go as far as various establishments in Guatemala. My debut album was released in 2007 and I have been a part of numerous projects since that time. I have also had the privilege of taking intensive blues lessons with Michael May and vocal lessons with Helen Lapakko.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back, patient, flexible, and caring teacher. I have experience with and enjoy teaching all ages and abilities. I like to guide students through material that they choose to work on, as long as it is within their ability. During my lessons, I will cover everything from the introductory basics, improving your technical abilities, ear training, theory, and improvisation. Time can also be taken to work through electric guitar basics involving amplifiers and effects and guitar maintenance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
None

*** Travel Equipment ***
Musical Materials, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Amp, Pedaboard, Metronome

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach people starting out in tablature, as I feel that they can more easily access songs in this method. I will, of course, teach them some basic note reading and the fretboard. I feel that learning chords and strumming is a great way to ensure that students feel success as they progress...as they can begin to play simple songs. I play all sorts of music myself, from rock to folk to blues.

Jason is easy-going, reliable and consistent. My son enjoys his lessons and looks forward to them each week. His skills have slowly and steadily been progressing (more practice on his own would surely help his learning speed up). We are thankful to have found Jason.

Jason has been providing in-home guitar instructions to one of my children for about 1.5 years. The entire experience has been truly and absolutely fantastic. He has a unique ability to be incredibly flexible in his teaching approach to best accommodate the individual student. Moreover, he's able to modify his approach given the particular circumstances on a particular date (perhaps the child is under the weather, crabby or a bit out of practice). Whatever the situation is, Jason is able to maximize the lesson and everybody leaves with a smile and some musical inspiration. Most importantly, individual lesson goals are consistently achieved and my child always has a clear understanding of what needs to happen before the next lesson (let's call it homework). Jason has been able to light the musical spark in my child and is continuing to provide the tools to get to the next level -- all while having fun. Jason has also fostered my child's musical creativity by supporting and fostering her creations and integrating that creativity into his lesson plans. In short, Jason is the best guitar teacher ever, hence the 5 stars!

Terry brings out the best in his students.

My daughter, age 10, enjoys her lessons with Terry. She quickly built a repertoire which included classical pieces, blues and pop/rock songs. She takes great pride in performing them for anyone who will listen ;-)

Terry is a gifted teacher who motivates students, quickly pinpoints any difficulties and finds creative remedies.

Piano is going to be part of my daughter's life for years to come and I am very grateful that we found Terry.

Great Piano Lessons

As a piano teacher myself, I was anxious to find a teacher that would make learning music an enjoyable experience for my children. I am totally and completely happy with my children's lessons with Terry. He is patient and encouraging. He draws from a variety of resources to provide music that teaches, challenges, and is pleasant to play (and listen to). I highly recommend him!

excellent teacher

My daughter started taking lessons with Terry when she was a few months shy of 5 years old. He was very patient with her and met her at her level. He even suggested waiting a few months before beginning so she would not get frustrated due to her small, petite fingers. I appreciated the fact that he was honest and did not want to waste our time or money. Once she started back, he worked to determine what learning methods would work well with her. She has excelled tremendously and is proud of her accomplishments to read and play simple songs as a 6-year-old!

About Delayna
In 2012, I graduated from Bob Jones University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education, focusing specifically in piano. Since graduating from university, I have taught general music and choir to Kindergarten-12th graders in a private Christian school and have developed my own music studio, geared primarily towards piano and voice students. I've also served as a primary church pianist for more than 12 years and directed multiple choirs.
I love working with children and have more than 10 years of experience teaching in a classroom setting as well as one-on-one private instruction. I enjoy finding creative ways to teach intricate concepts to children of all ages and my ultimate goal is to help create a lifelong appreciation for music in every student that sits on my piano bench.

About Katelyn
Hello! I am thrilled to welcome you to Kaiser Flute Studios. Private music lessons are a lot of fun and I can't wait for us to get to know each other!

There are a few things you can expect of me as your music teacher. You can always expect me to respect you and your time. Respect is very important to me. I ask that you also respect me, my time, and my home.

You can expect me to come prepared for your lessons and to be attentive during your lessons. Your lesson time is our time to work together and I will never give you less than 100% of my focus. When we are in the studio, my attention is yours.

You can expect me to be non-judgmental and open-minded and to always listen to your questions and concerns. I want my studio to be a safe place for your to express. You can talk to me about anything, even if it doesn't relate to the flute. Y
our thoughts, feelings, and concerns are important to me..

From you, I only expect that you will come to your lessons prepared every week and ready to learn. I ask that you communicate with me freely.

When my son Charles approached me asking to take flute lessons I was skeptical. Our family is not musical and I had no idea where to begin the search for a flute teacher! Fortunately, Katelyn was teaching a friend of Charlie at the time and allowed us to come in and observe the lesson before we jumped in to flute lessons. Her rapport with the students and the bond she works to build with them is amazing. Charlie learned so much more than the flute during his time with Katelyn--she encouraged his creativity in all aspects of his life and helped him build self-confidence during hard times. Charlie is no longer playing the flute but the things he learned with Katelyn continue to help him in his daily life.

Katelyn taught flute to my daughter Elizabeth through all of high school. She began in ninth grade and Katelyn helped her excel in her band program, at solo and ensemble festival, in all-state band and orchestra, and eventually in college auditions. Elizabeth is now a sophomore at Ohio State University where she majors in music education and we don't believe she could have done it without the gentle encouragement and support of Katelyn during her high school years! Music lessons are a great investment in your child's future and we would recommend them to anyone!

Then I began to sing with a 7x gospel recording artist for 9 years by the name of Kathy Horry. She was a secular singer for some years and moved over to gospel.

Ashleigh is an amazing coach. Ashleigh has been coaching my daughter for about five years via Facetime. The improvement in my daughter’s song interpretation and acting ability has been steady and incredible. Ashleigh knows how to prepare students for auditions. She has prepared my daughter for college auditions (from exploring and picking materials, to having all pieces ready).
