Mr. Hudson-Casanova is a great teacher with a lot of experience. Ask a question, and he'll answer or guide you in the right direction to explore your topic of inquiry in an easy manner. He has helped me grow and improve as a saxophone player, and more so as a musician overall, through studies with various exercises like long tones, articulations, scales and progressions, and improvising on various jazz standards. He has helped me discover new techniques and helped me to learn to incorporate them into my playing. No matter your ability, Mr. HC can help you grow and learn!
Clare
Michael has worked with my daughter throughout high school and is such a talented teacher and musician. More recently they have been learning jazz as well classical (my daughters request, which Michael always encourages) and she has had so much fun with it.
Jack
Michael has dramatically improved my ability to play the saxophone and understand Western music theory. Over the year of taking lessons with Michael, he's taught me the foundations of saxophone: scales, long tones, and playing by ear, all the while sharing his contagious love for music and being extremely patient (my saxophone was broken and squeaky for our first three months of lessons, haha). He's generously created and provided custom sheet music exercises, duet recordings, and jazz playlists to inspire me. All in all, Michael is giving me an expert and friendly education.

If you need any help improving your flute playing, preparing for an audition/recital/concert/competition or have always wanted to try to play the flute, then I am your person! :) I am able to give lessons for any level (beginner/intermediate/advanced) and any age. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I would love to help you explore music and to create an open, positive and encouraging environment for growth!

About Katarina T.

For me the quality of the lesson is more important than trying to go through as much material as possible. In that way we can take our time to fully learn and develop certain aspects of flute playing, go through any problems that you would be facing and making interesting discussions about the mater

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!

Private Flute Teacher

I have taught Flute and Recorder over a decade in both personal and classroom settings. Several of my students have gone on to achieve gold medals in their solo and ensemble contests, and place within the IMA music competition.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a stronger, more supported sound and as time goes on you'll be able to expand your range beyond what you thought possible. I specialize in working with beginners, and have experience working with students new to braces, as well. Typically, I use the Rubank Flute Method book in addition to your school's band books.

As far as what age to start flute, I am firm in starting a student no earlier than the spring/summer before their 4th grade year of schooling. This is not to say that a child could not begin learning music earlier, but the arm length required to play flute is necessary to achieve success.

For recorders, I use various method books and pull from many additional pop song books as well. ...

Kristin does a beautiful job teaching piano and singing to my daughters. The two go hand in hand and she does a great job combining both. On a personal note, she has a beautiful, generous heart and gives my girls little prizes when they do very well.
Erin
Kristin is wonderful! My daughter loves singing with her and looks forward to every lesson! Kristin really cares about how her students are doing and gets to know them and their interests outside of their lessons. We were blown away that she remembered Isabel's birthday after only meeting with us a few times!
Isabel sings all the time. She tells me, mommy I have to practice so I can be famous like Ms Kristin! We are so lucky to have found her!

Did not care enough to plan ahead or get to know my granddaughter enough to individualize her weekly lessons. Very apparent that she failed to prepare ahead of time. Often late and cancelled class several times.

Yah D.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

"Dr. Sue Sheya is truly an exceptional instructor. As a student who studied a little bit of music in Europe, it was difficult for me to adjust to the American solfege system (C, D, E scale) as I was used to the European solfege (Do, Re, Mi). However, Dr. Sheya was very flexible and adjusted all her lesson materials so that I could truly succeed in learning. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a supportive, friendly, and enthusiastic teacher that can truly guide them in learning how to play the flute!"

"Kristin has been one of the best instructors that I've ever had. I started flute lessons with her with a lot of bad habits picked up from an instructor at the school was I was attending. I didn't know that they were bad until Kristin walked me through why they were bad. She helped me break the habits, and since then I've been doing much better. I haven't tripped up as much as I used to, and I really do attribute it to her. Now I just need to practice more. She's very patient, always with a smile on her face, and made me feel very comfortable, whether it was at her home or mine. She has also been very flexible with my schedule.

I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone!"
