From first lesson through advanced high school students, I focus on quality of tone production and musicality.

My primary teaching philosophy revolves around the ideas of creativity and cooperative problem solving.

Hunter is a phenomenal teacher. My son (7) and myself have been taking weekly lessons with Hunter for 8 months now. He is wonderful with kids focusing on my son's readiness and getting him to enjoy and make progress. With me, Hunter has been great at adapting to what I wanted to get out of the lessons and I have made really great progress I did not think was possible. Thank you Hunter!!!

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.
Lorenzo S.
My first lesson was great. Mr. Paul was very patient and judged my skill level before making a lesson plan. Initially I was nervous, because I have never taken lessons before, but that quickly went away. I can definitely tell that he knows his stuff when it comes to teaching. He a great teacher and conversationalist.
Kennedy B.
Paul was very pleasant. He thoroughly explained things to my daughter in a manner that she could understand. He listened to her play and they also played together.

This was her first flute lesson with Paul, but she's already looking forward to the next lesson.

He was my band teacher when I was in grade school. I’m now going into my freshman year of college and I still remember him! He was so engaging, kind, energetic, and really cared about each individual student. I always looked forward to band in the morning and during the school day. He was definitely meant to be an instructor! :)

Fantastic. Also taught my autistic older child electric guitar; really good.

Online Flute Teacher

I am always most concerned with meeting you where you currently are as a musician and building you up from there. So whether you are an out right just starting out beginner, a budding prospect that wants to continue to grow into a knockout musician, to a more advanced individual that wants to achieve their greatest potential and kill it on your next audition, solo or even recital. Each person has their own distinctly unique reasons for learning to play an instrument or how to sing and I like to work with the individual at that base level to meet your needs. For example if your only goal is to be able to pull out your instrument and play for church on Sundays I can help you get there. Or if you are someone who just wants to be able to say I learned how to play I can also help you. No matter what your individual goals and purposes are I can help you make it happen!

I am primarily a flute family specialist: piccolo, flute, Alto and Bass flute are all in my wheelhouse. Through my years of schooling I have learned many other inst

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

"April is wonderful. She is finding 'hidden' problems with my breathing and use, or at times misuse of my neck muscles and breathing that would be very hard for a lesser teacher to detect and work to correct.
Her ear for pitch/tone and the various 'artifact' background variances in my blowing/breathing structure and ways toward a remedy is amazing.
Any teacher can show a student posture and finger placement, but her teaching techniques go far beyond that.
I am more than pleased with her commitment to excellence.
Thank you April."

"I've taken three lessons with Roberta so far, and it's been awesome! I've played flute in middle and high school, but after taking a break through college I thought it'd be good to pick it back up as a hobby in the city. She's been really great with helping me improve my tone and has a lot of knowledge. I'm excited to build my repertoire with her!"
