I've had several piano teachers over the years. Isaiah is by far the best. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable.
Erik H.
For someone who has never taken a private music lesson before I able to relax and begin learning about music literacy and music theory by Isaiah's ability to express and articulate the fundamentals of guitar in a simplified way. It was rewarding to leave the lesson with new techniques to practice and have fun with.

For your first flute lesson, please bring your flute, a music stand, and a love for music! We will begin by quickly talking through your goals and reasons for learning flute, as that informs my approach to your individual lessons. I emphasize a strong foundation in beautiful tone, technique, intonation, rhythm, and most importantly, the ability to communicate with musical phrasing. We can work on anything from learning how to produce a sound and mastering your scales, to preparing for auditions and performance skills. No need to bring sheet music if you don't know what to work on yet - I'll provide music and repertoire suggestions!

In lessons, I will teach students how to develop an embouchure and make sound, have proper technique, discuss equipment care, how to read music and develop note recognition, and ultimately, play music. All of this while, challenging the student to expand their creative and intellectual capacities.

The goal is to get my students playing with proper technique, so that this will carry on throughout their career and playing of the instrument. After getting some sounds out of the instrument and having decent technique, students will be assigned 1-2 songs to work on each lesson. It is the learning of music on one's own, that I believe, truly challenges the student to continue to apply information given in lessons. My ultimate goal, is to equip my students with a sustainable and enjoyable approach to practicing and performing music that leaves them wanting to play more, and doesn't burn them out.

Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!
