Jesica S.

Pittsburgh, PA

Classically trained teacher available for beginning through intermediate students of all ages. I want to ensure that we focus on what you want to learn, that you are happy with your progress, master proper technique, and have fun!

About Jesica

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I started playing flute when I was 8 and bass when I was 13. In 2002, I moved to New York City to attend The Juilliard School, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Double Bass performance. I came to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon University, where I got a Master's of Music degree and a post-graduate Performance Residency Certificate. Since finishing at Carnegie Mellon in 2011, I have been freelancing in Western PA, Ohio, and West Virginia.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want to provide a fun, relaxed environment in which you feel appro
priately challenged and comfortable to make mistakes. I don't have a pre-set course of music and exercises that I give to every student. Rather, I prefer to have a variety of music and exercises at hand so that we can find material that addresses the student's learning needs and is enjoyable for that student. I love teaching to all ages and levels, and I understand that each student's learning style and goals are different - the needs of a small child are very different than the needs of a student looking to get into a college music program. I want to ensure that you are happy with your progress, that you learn proper technique, and that you have fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stands, an electronic keyboard, mirrors so that students can see and make corrections to their form, a music library, and seating for parents. There's easily available parking on my street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument to demonstrate on. I have an electronic keyboard that I can bring if a music theory student does not have their own piano or keyboard. Students are responsible for purchasing all books and materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music of all eras, from baroque through 21st century compositions.

Cara R.

Homestead, PA

I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced flute lessons. We concentrate on notes, fingering, scales, and tuning.

About Cara

My name is Cara, a college graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I've played flute for 15 years and piano for 10. I've been teaching for 3 years, and I absolutely love it. I love music and I love teaching anyone who is interested to learn about it! From the basics to the notes on the staff, to the circle of fifths and complicated theory, i would love to teach all aspects of music. I understand that everyone has different tastes in music, so i love doing all different styles. Classical, Pop, Broadway, Oldies, you name it. If you're a beginner, or you've been playing
for a few years, we can find where you are and get you started right away! I hope you will give me a chance :)

*** Lesson Details ***
I would like to use Alfred's Basic Piano Library, Schaum Scale Speller, and Schaum Fingerpower.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ f/w keyboard and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect them to have a piano or a flute at home.

Cara is a great flute teacher!

Kylee O.

Pittsburgh, PA

I have many years experience in playing and teaching flute lessons. Depending on your level, I will adapt a similar style of teaching that my teacher, Damian Bursill-Hall of the Pittsburgh Symphony, uses with me. Prior to Mr. Bursill-Hall, I spent 3 years studying with Rhian Kenny of the PSO. I also had 5 years of lessons before that, and started piano lessons when I was 7. I have attended numerous masterclasses and festivals with great teachers, and have notes from all of them. I have had many different lessons with other flute teachers as well. I can teach you classical music, baroque, romantic, etc. I can also teach contemporary, including beat box flute techniques and other extended techniques on flute or piccolo.

About Kylee

I am currently a junior flute performance student at Duquesne University, and I study with Damian Bursill-Hall of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. I am a former student of Rhian Kenny's, also of the PSO. I currently do a lot of freelance playing with my chamber group, the Duquesne Woodwind Trio, and by myself. I am an alumni of the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra, and a member of the Duquesne Symphony Orchestra, Duquesne Wind Symphony, and multiple chamber ensembles. I have attended the Le Domaine Forget International Music Academy in Montreal, Orford Arts Center in Orford, QC, Advanced
Chamber Music Seminar, West Virginia University Flute Festival, the Youngstown University Flute Festival, and will be attending the Consummate Flutist at Carnegie Mellon University in a few weeks with Jeanne Baxtresser and Jim Walker. I have studied in masterclass with flutists including Emmanuel Pahud, Robert Langevin, Mathieu Dufour, Denis Bluteau, Lorna Mcghee, and many others. I have received 1st place in Butler Symphony Orchestra's 2013 Young Artist Concerto Competition, a recent winner in the Tuesday Musical Society Scholarship Competition, second place in Duquesne University's annual Wind Concerto Competition, and 2nd place in the Women's Advisory Board Scholarship Competition. I have always been a leader, and with a kind, very encouraging approach to teaching, I am able to teach my students how to become the best player that they can be. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with other flutists.

Jessica H.

Pittsburgh, PA

Flute is my principal instrument, and I am excited to share my experience in classical, jazz, and celtic flute with my students. My teaching approach is to match repertoire work to the student's current needs. For example, a student who needs to work on building dexterity will be working on technical exercises while another student may be focusing on tone or dynamic expression in their weekly exercises. In addition to technique building studies, I encourage students to bring in works of any genre that they would like to excel in.

About Jessica

I have been teaching flute, piano, and violin in the greater Pittsburgh area for four years though I began teaching while earning my degree in music performance at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In addition to my teaching experience, I have 10 years of performance experience under my belt to share with students. I have experience in a wide variety of ensembles including: classical/orchestral, chamber music, contemporary ensembles, flute quartet, musicals, jazz combos, folk bands, traditional Irish music, and free improvisation accompanying poetry or narrative.
The levels I teach are: Flu
te - begginer to advanced, Piano - beginner to intermediate, Violin - beginner

Seems to be very knowledgeable. Explanations are very clear and she is good at keeping a pace appropriate to her student(s). In the lessons I've had so far I feel like I've made a good bit of progress each time without getting ahead of my abilities.
