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!

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.

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.

I create a unique plan for every student in order to meet their personal goals, ensuring that they feel like they are getting the most out of their time with me. I use a number of visual and audio aids in order to keep lessons moving along, and I make sure that the student is able to set some long-term goals that we can go after together!

I begin by focusing on the basics of the flute, such as knowing the parts of the flute, how to hold the flute with good posture, making that first sound, having the correct embouchure, and some breathing techniques. Then we progress to learning basic note-reading and rhythms, while incorporating several beginner flute fingerings, then moving on to learning simple songs.

I typically use the Accent on Achievement series for flute or the Rubank flute series or a combination of the two, depending on the student's ability/level.

If the student plays in band at school, we may also take time to work on music for that as well, giving the student the individual attention that they may miss in a group/classroom setting. Flute lessons are also a great way to keep up with practice when school is out for holiday breaks or summer.

About Donna

I have been teaching music for 23 years, both in private lesson and classroom settings. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Shenandoah University & Conservatory and I have experience teaching all age groups, from age 3 through senior adults, and every age in between. I enjoy teaching

Private Flute Teacher

Hello!

I am a private music instructor specializing in woodwind instruments looking to take on clarinet, flute and saxophone students in the Orange County area!

My lessons consist of a well balanced coverage of exercises (scales, note patterns, etudes, duets, major repertoire, etc) geared towards building a solid foundation in playing technique. This allows each student to be accurate and expressive with a sense of ease in their playing! Students of the studio are also thrown into the world of music! They are strongly encouraged to attend concerts, listen to music regularly, and attend masterclasses. The goal is not just to learn an instrument, but to also develop a life-long love and appreciation for music!

I am very proud to say that my students soar through their band and orchestra programs in school and obtain a sound quality/sense of musicality way beyond their grade level! The majority of my students excel past their school music programs! They join youth/honor bands ...

About Carter

I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is poor instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments. My goal as a music educator is not only to t

"Frances was my son's musical mentor. Her patience, generosity, amazing technique, knowledge, and inspiring personality all helped make him the musician he is today. She has a tone that is extraordinary that she passed on to my son. As his private teacher from ages 5-16, she was instrumental in helping him become a professional musician and performer."
