I offer my flute students of all ages and levels inspiring and interesting lessons based on classical repertoire, exercises and studies from from the Western European traditions of mostly the French school of flute playing, but also borrowing from the English and German traditions.

I work with my students to develop and improve tone quality and pitch control. I guide them through Moyse, De La Sonorite, and Trevor Wye's Practice Book 1 on Tone and note bending exercises. While guiding my students through exercises, etudes and pieces, I strive to sharpen their listening skills by drawing their attention to fuzzy tone, faulty pitch, uneven fingers etc. I use tuners and metronomes in my lessons to encourage these skills and to teach my students how to practice to get great results.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching and playing flute! With over 25 years of experience, I still find teaching to be the most rewarding and fun experience. I always look forward to meeting and working with new ...

About Frances

Originally from Massachusetts, I have been teaching children and adults flute for over 20 years. I teach from the very beginner student to the very advanced and I have additional training in the Suzuki Method which is especially helpful for beginning young children. I am primarily a classical flute

Our son attended a neighborhood concert and was struck with the idea that he’d like to learn to play the flute. We knew absolutely nothing about flutes at that time, but we consider ourselves so, so fortunate that Frannie came to us by recommendation.

Frannie is fun and has a great sense of humor. She is endlessly patient and relaxed, but also firm when she needs to be. She always keeps the music interesting for him – for example, after a period of working hard on the pieces in the Suzuki Method repertoire, she encourages him to mix it up and play some things just for fun, like the popular themes to Star Wars and Harry Potter.

Our son, now 9, has been studying with Frannie for almost a year now, and I cannot believe how much he has grown and improved in such a short amount of time. Frannie inspires him to play his very best; he works hard to emulate her gorgeous tone. He absolutely loves his weekly lessons, he looks forward to her student recitals, and he is motivated to practice every day.

It is a beautiful thing to watch your child fall in love with making music, and we credit this to Frannie. She has our highest recommendation.

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.

To know how to play the piano is important; however, to know the why of piano playing will increase your knowledge & playing ability.

About Ruthy

I have been playing the piano for over twenty years. I began at the early age of seven years old. Because piano has played such a vital role in my life, I believe it is a responsibility of mine to pass on such a delightful gift of piano playing to those who would like to make it a part of their life

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

Will
After a long time trying to find a guitar instructor with affordable rates and availability that suits my needs, I am so glad to have been referred to Nathan. He radiates kindness and patience, making it easy to quickly feel comfortable with him. He moves at my pace and shows interest in the songs I want to learn and my own goals rather than working from an agenda. Nathan offers Covid conscious in-person as well as Zoom lessons which is convenient. I highly recommend him and I am so glad to learn from him.
Brian
I've worked with Nathan as a songwriting collaborator on various projects in the past and I can attest to his talent as a guitarist and songwriter. Nathan is a very innovative composer and an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. I've had the pleasure of co-writing and workshopping songs with him and it's always an inspiring experience. I would strongly recommend him as a guitar instructor and songwriting teacher.
Adam
Nathan’s optimism and continuous support helped reignite my passion for writing and playing! It’s obvious that he puts in an abundance of time and energy into personalizing a lesson plan for you, constantly assessing (and reassessing) your goals and then laying out achievable steps you can take to reach those. He has never been discouraging or judgmental; on the contrary, I look forward to sharing my progress with him each week. He breaks otherwise daunting concepts into small, palatable portions, teaching and incorporating into your practice regimen seamlessly. Outside of musical theory and technique, he also has advice for a number of problems, whether it be regarding networking, stage presence, recording, or less music-based problems such as burning out or handling drastic life changes.

If you’re looking for a talented, empathetic teacher who truly cares about you and your pursuit of music, Nathan is my only recommendation!
