Roberta M. Brooklyn, NY

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 one€™s creativity.

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 is the best!

Roberta is a super intelligent and adaptable teacher who is especially skilled at pacing her lessons and breaking things down into digestible bits for the ultra-beginner player. She is the best!

Roberta is an excellent instructor, per the fuller review that follows this summry.

I come to the flute late in life, though with a background in Celtic music on simpler wind instruments. Roberta has guided me skillfully and with compassionate direction since I embarked on my flute journey. She is helping me make the transition from folk instruments to the flute in as painless a manner as is likely to be possible. I look forward to each lesson and am highly motivated to practice in order to continue to derive the full benefits of Roberta's considerable knowledge, wisdom, artistry and instructional skill. When a particular element of a lesson goes well, it is sometimes hard to tell who is the most delighted--the student or the teacher.

Roberta has re-invigorated my daughter's interest in playing flute!

My daughter switched to learning with Roberta after 2 years of flute lessons, and the difference now that she is learning with Roberta has been amazing. With her warmth and enthusiasm, Roberta inspires and encourages my daughter to continuously improve, and my daughter has finally started enjoying playing flute again. I am very happy with the rate at which my daughter is progressing, with her lessons having an equal emphasis on technical skill and musicality.
Loretta M. Chicago, IL

Flute lessons focus on posture, breath control, theory, and performance in all genres of music.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style.

My 11-year-old absolutely loves Miss Loretta. She's enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and makes learning music fun. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson and learning something new. If my daughter brings a piece she wants to learn, Loretta finds a way to fit it in. It's clear that Loretta loves teaching and is a natural at it. We feel lucky to have found her.

In my last lesson, Loretta helped me work through a major misconception about myself. I did not believe that my voice sounded good in falsetto - so I didn't practice it, lowered my expectations, and generally created a self-defeating barrier..

The transformation in learning to love what's coming out of my pipes is more than just voice-deep. Now I believe there are new lands I can conquer! Thank you for helping me to love my upper register Loretta!

After only a couple of lessons I can tell that Loretta is a well rounded teacher. As a flute instructor she is better than what I could have imaged.
Dr. Huei-Mei (May) J. Saint Paul, MN

I've been teaching flute for over 10 years. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of flute skills.

Emphasis will be placed on performing the flute most naturally and using the least amount of effort, with a special attention to the basic principles of the ‘Alexander Technique,’ which professional musicians use to perform. Students will also have a tool to improve their breath control available during their lessons.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

My 4 year daughter has been taking piano lessons with Heidi since she was 3 yrs old. It is amazing how much my daughter has learned from her. My daughter has become confident and independent reading music and playing the piano. My daughter enjoys and respects Heidi so much. I would not recommend any one else if you are looking for a great piano teacher. She is patient, very positive, talented and great with children.

My 12 year old daughter has been taking flute lessons for one year with Heidi and she loves her and has learned so much. The progress she has made in the year is amazing. Heidi has a wonderful demeanor with her, she is patient yet challenges her. She tailors her lessons to what she is doing in her middle school bands and also uses outside resources. Heidi is clearly a very accomplished musician and her passion and enthusiasm for the flute is passed on to her students. This is definitely a quality to have in a teacher for this age group. The online class is so convenient and Heidi is very tech savvy and assists myself and my daughter in this area as well when needed. Heidi is very dependable and flexible if a lesson has to be changed. I highly recommend Heidi as a flute teacher, we couldn't be happier with our experience with her.

Heidi is one of a kind. Together we brought music from a two dimensional piece of paper and turned it into a four dimensional masterpiece. Overall she has taught me how express myself through music. She is the best, out of all three teachers I've had not one of them have opened my eyes to the wonders of music until now. I wouldn't trade her for anything and I'm extremely fortunate to have had her fall into my musical career.
David B. New York, NY

I use approaches from canonical flute method books (Marcel Moyse, Taffanel & Gaubert) along with etudes as a means to strengthen the fundamental technique of my students.

With beginners, demystifying tone production, vibrato and hand placement are emphasized in order to have the better enjoy the process of learning the instrument.

I'm also interested in working with students who want to focus on alto flute and piccolo and address the idiosyncrasies of these members of the flute family.

About David

I am a former principal flutist of the National Symphonia of Trinidad & Tobago and performed at several jazz festivals throughout the Caribbean. After graduating from the M.A. jazz program of Queens College, I've performed in a number of jazz, world music and musical theater groups including the quartet that performs my original music. I use traditional flute pedagogy to ensure my students have a solid foundation but also bring my non classical experience to make the lessons engaging and fun. *** Lesson Details *** I address all aspects of fundamental flute technique through the use on canonical studies (Moyse, Taffanel/ Gaubert) and etudes.

David is a born teacher. I began my sessions with David after a 20 year hiatus from the instrument (gave it up after 8th grade), and brought a considerable amount of insecurity and awkwardness with me to our first few classes. However, David was able to put me right at ease with his easygoing and humorous manner, and following his lead I have made more progress than I would have thought possible in a few months- particularly with improving my tone and embouchure. Every class leaves me feeling more confident about my abilities to become a respectable flutist, despite being a latecomer to the instrument. He inspires with his own beautiful playing, and enlightens with great metaphors that somehow finally help me understand what my mouth and breath are supposed to be doing :) I couldn't recommend him highly enough, and I'm looking forward to all our future sessions.

My flute skills were rather rusty when David and I started working together. Give his emphasis in jazz performance, I thought that I would have to work with another teacher to reinforce my technical skills. Not so. David has been OUTSTANDING in both the jazz improvisation side of our work together, and also in the reinforcement of the technical flute skills I wanted to master. His easy-going personality, combined with his high standards for excellence works exceptionally well for me. Even when my practicing hasn't been what it should have been, David's creative teaching skills have turned what could have been a lackluster lesson into a substantial learning experience. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I was concerned about studying the flute via Skype but that is a non-issue. Even when Skype may be having issues, we are able to make the time work well and make progress toward my goals.

Great guy and a great player.

David is a superb woodwinds player who really knows his stuff. Really easy going guy with tons of information to share. As a friend and colleague of his, I highly recommend him to any aspiring musician of any age. He also has an amazing collection of instruments!

About Suzanne

Need a teacher who caters to your learning style? That's my specialty! Since I hold numerous freelance jobs, I have worked under a number of odd circumstances playing a variety of styles (and even instruments!). I have earned both a Bachelor's and Master's of Music in flute performance--both from DePaul University, and have studied and performed with many well-respected orchestral and freelance performers. My resume and references are available upon request. *** Lesson Details *** I emphasize solid tone and technique as a foundation for playing, but always encourage musicality and finding your own voice within a piece. You'll often find me asking you "how did you feel about that performance?" in lessons, so you can begin to identify and troubleshoot your own habits ...

About Flute

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 ...
