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 7 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for ones creativity.

I am a student focused teacher who believes that each student learns differently. I focus on the foundations of music theory, as well as healthy practice habits in order to help my students succeed in any musical setting. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.
I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique. For flute I also address embouchure, tonal conception and listening to great players.
Played the flute since it frustrated me in 5th grade as the only instrument I couldn't make a sound out of. Now have been playing for 11 years with 6 years of experience teaching flute lessons. First chair wind ensemble in high school, 1 semester of concert band in college.

The flute is one of the most popular instruments for students learning music, and for good reason. It’s fairly easy to learn, is one of the most affordable instruments to purchase or rent, and it can be used in playing all styles of music. Flute is prevalent in orchestra arrangements and jazz ensembles, and there is a large selection of solo pieces for flute.
If you’re a beginner, private flute lessons help you develop your skill and technique faster. Playing the flute requires understanding your embouchure, which is the position of your mouth, and how it affects your tone. For flute, your embouchure even affects the octave of the music you’re playing. A flute teacher can help correct issues before they become bad habits.
Because the flute is so popular, most school bands have between ten and twenty students playing the flute. While band directors are well-trained musicians, most just don’t have the resources to help you excel at your instrument. By taking private flute lessons, you can improve on the technical skills you’re learning in band class, and your flute teacher can help enhance your practice schedule so you become proficient quickly. If you’re struggling with learning your instrument, your flute instructor can help you identify why you’re having trouble and can give you specific guidance.
All musicians, no matter what the instrument, know the most important tool in learning and excelling is practice. Flute lessons help you establish good practice habits, through both the classes themselves, and through the expectations involved outside of the lessons.
