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.

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. ...

Ellie
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! :)

Ms. Galyna is very nice and patient in teaching, no matter the kid is a quick learner or a slow one. Her piano studio is a wonderful place that provides a good learning environment for students.
Julia
My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!
Maria
My daughter took lessons with Galyna for five years. At the age of seven she was true beginner - no experience with any musical instruments. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons! She ended up playing in a band in middle school and I attribute her success to Galyna's lessons. Galyna is professional, friendly and flexible. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher.

I am a flautist with over 10 years of experience; performing as a soloist, in an orchestral setting and with jazz ensembles. I hold a Licentiate (LTCL) Diploma (2009) and a Grade 8 Certificate on Flute (2008) from Trinity College London.

I focus on the fundamentals (tone, technique and timing) using my own personalized approach to methods such as long tones, scales/ arpeggios and technical studies. I also allow students to be creative and express themselves through the art of music.

I was one of Jeremy's first students. My parents were forcing me to pick up music as a hobby and i was very hesitant because it seemed tedious to me. My mom then heard about Jeremy from her friend and asked if he was willing to teach me. He was very patient as i admit i was not the best student, but he stuck with me and now i am taking auditions to play for an orchestra as a principal flute player. I will always be grateful to him for getting me to love and enjoy music as i was against it in the beginning, I would recommend that everyone make him your teacher, he really is awesome! Love ya teach!
Giselle
As a teacher myself, I find Jeremy-Paul's tutoring service is to recommended as he is very patient and understands the student's capability. As a new learner, he has really given me an excellent start. He makes his lessons interesting and demands a high level of expectations. He is very passionate about his craft and is very enthusiac about engaging his students.

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!

"Heidi is an amazing and effective flute teacher!

As an adult flute player, I am thrilled to have discovered Heidi. From the first lesson, I realized she is an excellent flute teacher who goes above and beyond during each lesson, making every second count. Heidi is patient, flexible, organized, professional, and fun to work with. I believe Heidi is a RARE find as she is an exceedingly effective teacher. She listens attentively and finds just the right solutions to each flute playing issue. As a result she has helped me develop a new posture, better tone, and improved technical skills. We have been utilizing Skype for my lessons and this arrangement has worked out particularly well. Additionally, Heidi goes the extra mile and then one step more! For example, after a lesson she makes an audio recording of her playing the current technical exercise and music piece, including both parts to flute duets and then emails them to me. This is especially helpful as it is like having Heidi with me during my daily practice sessions. It is evident that Heidi is passionate about teaching flute. Additionally, she is a pleasure to work with! With the highest endorsement, I recommend Heidi for teaching flute."
