I'm very good with young students. Flute is very difficult for smaller, younger ones because of the instruments size. And it's difficult to even get a sound sometimes.
" There's a difference between playing the notes and making the Music. Wanna know the difference? "I've been a professional musician and teacher for over 35 years. I have a degree from the University of Minnesota and I studied music at the University of St. Thomas when I was in high school. I've performed and recorded with numerous artist including The Temptations, Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits), Bobby Z, Billy McLaughin, Presidential Inauguration 2005, The Shirelles, Martha Reeves, Larry King, The Guess Who, Quiet Riot, Loverboy, J. Hoye and many more. I received the Certificate of Achievement from Billboard Magazine for production and songwriting, etc.,etc. enough about me though.
*** Lesson Details *** Every student is different so I like to base lessons for each student upon their strengths and weaknesses. Some students are just
beginning, others want to improve upon their skills. Some students want to learn more about Classical music, others want to learn jazz and improvisation, others rock and roll or country et. al.. Others want to know how music works-the theory
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department. For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.
I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago. I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program. I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards. For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.
I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions. I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs. I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.
*** Lesson Details *** All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary. All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both. Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.
Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.
*** Studio Equipment *** I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.
*** Travel Equipment *** The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.
*** Specialties *** I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests. Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues
I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Kimberly was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. After starting the flute and piano at the age of 8, she knew she had found something she loved and wanted in her life forever. At age 12, she added the saxophone and clarinet to her repertoire of instruments.

There was where she fell in love with contemporary music and has devoted her life to sharing her love for it with others. After completing her Masters degree in Flute Performance at CalArts, she went on to pursue a Doctorate in Contemporary Flute Performance at the University of California, San Diego.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in music. I have more than 9 years of experience teaching students music both as a private instructor. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.
Let's work hard together to improve!
For Spanish: My name is Carly and I am a Spanish teacher who has taught in private and public schools so I'm familiar with the curriculum that is offered there. I gained my first classroom teaching experience when I lived abroad in South Korea and taught English. I transferred all those skills here.
I have taught various subjects from fruits and animals to reading comprehension in the target language. I love teaching and love seeing my students progress. I will tailor the lessons to your needs and goals.
Experienced Music teacher of 8 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of their instrument and theory skills. I specialize in all styles. Typically, I use a variety of method books to pick from to meet the needs of the students. I also have many tools available to use during lessons. My students have gone on to NYSSMA and on to college auditions successfully!
I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.
We all learn differently, and I try to accommodate the student's style as much as possible in lessons! I thoroughly believe that skill is a learned attribute, and with the right teacher ANYONE with enough drive can accomplish whatever their goals are.
Hi everyone, I'm Guthrie! I love music more than anything else; playing, teaching, composing are all my life passions. My styles vary from Irish flute to classical, and sometimes bagpipes on the side!
I'm from the Washington state, but currently studying music in Montréal, Québec. I've also lived and played music in Germany and Norway, both of which have shaped my personal taste in music. And as a teacher, I like to let the student tell me how they like to learn, what kind of music they want to learn to play, and then I can accommodate that. I promise you will learn a lot from me, (and me from you!) and have quite a bit of fun on the side!

I invite you to listen to music, explore different genres and make your mind up as to what you would like to play.

instrument. Technique is what truly unlocks all doors in music having the ability to play anything comes from scale practice and patterns. Metronomes are a vital part of your success.
Finally reading and basic music theory is the essential skill that separates men from minnows in the sense of making music consistent. The discipline necessary to do this is minimal but important. I trust that you will excel in my class because my methods are tried and true. If at the end of the first lesson you feel you will not progress on your mission with me I completely understand but do think that will be unlikely as I want to share with you my deepest thoughts on how this can be done and in return you will receive the best education possible.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to providing you with some great lessons!
Experienced flute teacher seeking beginning and intermediate students! I have been playing the flute for 14 years, and recently graduated with a degree in Music Education. I love working with students of all ages to help them achieve their musical goals! All lessons are customized based on your desired outcomes. Having experience playing in musical theater and opera pit orchestras, wind ensembles, symphonic bands, symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles, I have the skills to teach a wide range of genres. Whether you are looking to learn the flute for the first time or to work on your current skills, I am excited to get started!
I began playing the flute at the age of eight, but my love for playing the flute began when I had a passionate teacher show me how much fun and rewarding playing an instrument can be. I now want to do the same for my students which is why I decided to study music in college. I am a graduate from the University of Delaware with a degree in Music Education. Throughout my career, I have taught private flute lessons, group flute lessons, middle school and high school bands, and elementary general music. I have also performed in symphonic bands, wind ensembles, orchestras, musical theater and opera pits, numerous solo festivals, and an hour long solo recital.
"I learned a lot in my time with Allison. I loved how flexible and understanding she was with my busy schedule and I appreciated the freedom we had during
the lesson. I feel that Allison has a good understanding of different techniques and implements them nicely while making the lesson feel stress free and open. Allison is GREAT!"
"Rebecca is a very thoughtful and thorough teacher. She brings a very enthusiastic attitude and approach to the student. Our son is very fond of taking les
sons with Rebecca, and enjoys his lessons. Rebecca is highly recommended."
"Matt's a wonderful teacher. He's extremely patient, and takes his time explaining concepts in different ways to help you understand the topic fully. He's
also very flexible which really helps those of us with crazy schedules. If you wish, class time can focus on music theory along with the actual playing of the flute which is very valuable (in my opinion). He's given me great tips with regards to embouchure and tone, not to mention with reading music and applying them to my playing. His instruction has really helped me improve my playing overall. I highly recommend Matt."
"My first lesson went great. Kim made me feel very comfortable and excited about learning."
"Heidi is an awesome flute instructor and I'm so glad I found her for my daughter. She's upbeat, positive, encouraging, and patient. It is obvious she lov
e music and loves sharing her knowledge. With that said I would also like to add that she is a very accomplished musician and not only knows the subject matter but is excellent at imparting that gift to my daughter. Heidi has many tricks up her sleeve to aid her student's progress including video homework excercises and additional websites for practice that I would never have found on my own. She's incredibly proficient with how to use the computer for lessons and has kindly worked with us to navegate Skype, fix glitches, find additional sheet music, and advised us on purchasing new music and a new flute. She is very good at motivating my daughter and she continually comes up with new exercises and websites to use in order to nudge her a little bit more into developing new skills while challenging her as well. Heidi is thoughtful, considerate, and has spent time getting to know us and remembering details of our lives. Our lives are busy and schedules always change but Heidi is very amenable to making adjustments. I would highly recommend using Heidi as a teacher and have mentioned on many occasions to friends how great she is AND we don't have to leave the house, big bonus!"
"I just had my very first flute lesson with Jerry this morning, and it was great! Jerry is very patient and encouraging!"
"Kylee is a fantastic flutist. I am the Assistant Director of Community Engagement at Classical Music Indy, a non-profit organization in Indiana, and I hir
ed her for many gigs in Indianapolis. I kept hiring Kylee for our gigs because she was always prepared and on-time. She plays at a very high level and I will miss working with her."
"Wonderful teacher, highlyl recommended
Diane was great! I have played other musical instruments in the past, but never the flute. I told her I wanted to
learn to play the flute in just 3 lessons. She didn't laugh and tell me that was impossible, but instead worked with me to achieve my goal! She was patient, thoughtful, great at pointing out little things that instantly improved my playing. She even went above and beyond by emailing me a link to a video tutorial. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to play the flute."
"Kelly is knowledgeable and patient with me and that is just the way I need to be taught. She is very helpful and has shown me things no other instructor
has. I like her method and plan to continue with her."
