Keeping the performing arts active and alive in my community has always been important to me. I strive to encourage creativity and to help my students flourish by nurturing their musical gift with proven teaching techniques. My teaching model is that of the traditional lesson structure, where I dedicate the first 15 minutes of an hour to learning warm up techniques, scales and music theory. I then focus on an etude to further develop the flute playing techniques needed to play an involved piece of music. The final 30 minutes are spent working on whatever piece of music my student has selected. I often let my student's choose the music they feel most connected to and excited about however, I will also choose for them to ensure they learn what are considered the "flute standards" in repertoire. The traditional lesson style helps to maintain structure within a lesson time frame but I am also flexible and will deviate to focus on areas my students may need extra time on.

About Michelle

Passionate about music and flute since a young child, I have over 20 years of experience in solo performance, orchestral and ensemble work. I began my musical career in the 4th grade when first introduced to the flute. After graduating from high school in 2006, I attended Berklee College of Music in

Michelle has an extraordinary talent. My fiancé and I contacted her to play our wedding ceremony and reception music after I heard Michelle play a solo piece at a winter concert I attended this December. UNBELIEVABLE! We knew we HAD to have her play our music, as we were looking for a more whimsical, classical vibe for the music, rather than the ordinary “press play and hear covers of different songs” vibe.
The way she connects with the music is like something I’ve never seen before. I would highly recommend Michelle for any event that you are looking to host. She also mentioned she conducts lessons-although I am not a musician myself, I believe she would be an excellent teacher!
Gail Allard
Michelle is a fine flut teacher. She is knowledgeable, accomplished in her own performance, passionate about the craft of playing, and flexible in accommodating the non-traditional student. As an adult student with previous performance experience, I especially appreciate her willingness and ability to fine tune my current level of performance and keep me on my toes with new material and techniques. I strongly recommend Michelle as a flute teacher for any level of learner.

Meg is an incredible voice teacher. When I first came to her, I was what most people would call 'tone-deaf.' After only a couple of months of taking lessons with Meg, not only can I match pitch, but I have gained tremendous confidence in myself as a singer, performer and person. I would highly recommend her, no matter what level you’re at!

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
