I found Brenda to be responsible, flexible, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. She is very good at tailoring lessons to meet your needs -- so don't be afraid to ask for something! She works well with all ages, teaching three members of my family. She has some great experience, and I encourage any one to contact her for information.

I took lessons with Frannie for more than ten years, starting at age 4 in an introduction to music class at the Brooklyn Music School. Through her I found not just a great love for music but a lens through which I discovered and learned about the world. With Frannie, once a week for nearly my entire childhood, I would learn to practice and work at a piece or phrase, or to interpret and have and opinion on music I played, or to play like I mean every note, and so on endlessly. Those skills were some of the earliest and most important lessons I had about how to live and enjoy my life, and art, and how to work hard, and care about what I do for my own sake and no one else's. And I don't believe just any teacher could have done that for me. Since moving on I have often felt a different excitement and deep understanding of music than many of the peers I met who have spent far more time than me studying music.

I'm still a musician. I graduated recently from Bard College with a degree in music and have since played onstage in a very successful off-broadway musical. I've played in many orchestras including with graduate & conservatory students at Bard, with the New York Youth Symphony Orchestra, and at LaGuardia High School (formerly Music & Art). I have moved on to other instruments, and forms of music, but I credit Frances not just for showing me how much I love music but for teaching me in many ways how to enjoy and get what I want from life. I can't recommend her enough.

My daughter Coco studied with Frances for a number of years. Without question Francis was the best music teacher Coco ever had, and she's had quite a few.
Francis is generous, creative, and inspiring to work with, she has the perfect balance of qualities that a music student needs. She's highly motivating and makes demands of her students which stretch them to achieve their full potential, yet she never pushes past their limits; Coco never felt stressed by her practice but always wanted to fulfill the expectation of excellence which Francis instilled in her. Francis always led by example and was kind, supportive, and a lot of fun to work with. She's also disciplined, reliable, and punctual. I give her the highest recommendation.

Rebecca is an amazing teacher and exudes energy and passion when teaching our daughter. She is also very patient and understanding of little children's attitude and behavior which I know can be very challenging at times. Our daughter has been learning from Rebecca for the past two years and is not only able to play but explain the music to myself and others (who, I should say, do not have any musical ability). Our daughter has a new found passion for music because of her lessons and I can't thank Rebecca enough for her help and dedication to our daughters learning.

Why TakeLessons?

Flute Lessons

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.
