Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

Sarah believes in helping students set their own goals and markers of success. The knowledge passed down to her students consists of practical techniques for approaching the instrument, the embodiment of rhythm, and a natural approach to musicality. With these skills, students can gain confidence and contentment in their journey of studying a musical instrument. This holds true whether the student is a complete beginner, an enthusiast, or an advanced student aiming for a career in music.

Sarah is currently pursuing her doctorate in flute performance at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Her dissertation is an exploration of the narratives, techniques, and histories of flute masterclasses. In addition to private teaching, she is also a music professor at St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn. Sarah holds a master's degree in music performance from New York University where she studied with one of the great living innovators of the flute.

About Sarah
The New York Times praised Sarah for combining "thoughtful musicality with virtuosity in her alternately energetic and delicate account of a flute line laden with light multiphonics and unusual timbres." A leading performer of contemporary classical music, Sarah is a member of The Parhelion Trio, an all-female flute, clarinet, and piano ensemble known for their energetic and "effervescent" (The Strad) playing. She is also a frequent contributor to the New York Philharmonic's Very Young Composers Program, where she gives demonstrations on the capabilities of the flute.

Catonsville, MD

I combine many years of professional performing experience in a variety of ensembles and genres, with my advanced education - a Doctorate in Music Performance, to bring a love of music and of playing the flute to my students. I get passionate about helping my students set and meet - even exceed - their goals. Lessons and repertoire are tailored towards individual learning styles.

About Sarah
I maintain a home studio in Catonsville and my school-age students have consistently been successful in competitions and auditions. I teach all ages, beginner through adult, and would also be pleased to offer flute ensemble or sectionals as well.

I have over 12 years of professional performing experience. While serving with the U.S. Army Field Band, I participated in numerous educational outreach activities ranging from elementary school presentations introducing younger students to music, high school sectionals and individual lessons, Google Hangouts for distance learning, and college-level master classes for flute students and chamber music groups.

I completed a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2010. My thesis covered modern works by Flutist-Composers. I can introduce you to the work of ext
ended techniques on the flute, while also providing a solid foundation in technique, tone production and interpretation.

Background: Although I had played flute some years ago, I had not played for the last dozen years, and now with more time available, I was eager to get back to it. Having read Sarah's bio & watched her Army Field Band video, she seemed like the perfect teacher for me. Sarah met all my expectations. She listened carefully to my goals for the lessons. She truly is a professional, advising me on my concerns which were how to get a more beautiful tone, how to strengthen my embouchure, to find the best finger exercises to improve dexterity, and more.

Broomfield, CO

Instruction for all ages and ability levels on all saxophones, clarinets, and flutes.

About Ryan
Woodwind specialist Ryan hails from Aurora, Colorado, and is based in the Denver/Boulder, CO area. He is currently pursuing his Doctor of Musical Arts Degree at the University of Colorado, where he serves as the Graduate Teaching Assistant for the saxophone studio. He also holds a Master of Music Degree in Saxophone from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and graduated summa cum laude from Colorado State University with Bachelor’s Degrees in Music Performance and Education. An extremely in-demand private instructor, Ryan's students have been selected to principal chairs in such ensembles as the Colorado All-State Band and Jazz Band, Northern Kentucky Honor Band, Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble, and many more. Equally comfortable in classical, jazz, popular, and sacred settings, Ryan has shared the stage with Fa
reed Haque, Matt Wilson, Greg Gisbert, The Lettermen, and many others. Ryan performs regularly with the TomaScoyk Duo, the Black Diamond Quartet, and the Promethean Quartet, whose debut album "Through Adam's Fall" was released in 2013. Ryan's newest recording project, "Somewhere Between," will be released in early 2016. Equally split as a performer and educator, Ryan is an energetic and innovative teacher, as well as an experienced music arranger and recording engineer.

I whole-heartedly recommend Ryan as a private instructor. My middle school-aged son had enjoyed learning to play saxophone in his school band, but towards the end of his 1st year was getting bored by the slow pace. After beginning lessons w Ryan (through the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music) his interest, enthusiasm & skill improved dramatically & he began to excel as a musician. Ryan was soon guiding him through more complicated compositions, and the joy of playing was evident every time my son picked up his sax. With Ryan’s training, he learned to prepare for auditions, and as a result has won a seat (and solos!) in several State & city select bands, jazz ensembles and every group his school has to offer.

Ryan’s personality was a great fit for my son. He’s very professional, while being completely approachable, patient & encouraging, and his love of music is passed along to his students. His versatility & broad knowledge of musical genres allow him to introduce new directions for his students to explore. With Ryan, my son studied classical compositions and also deepened his interest in Jazz. The chance to work with Ryan on his improv skills was very valuable to him...it brought a new level of confidence & comfort to his playing.

I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a private music instructor, either for themselves or for their son or daughter!

San Diego, CA

I've been teaching the flute for 10 years and I am comfortable working with all age groups and ability levels.

Several of my students have participated in San Diego Honor Band as well as San Diego Youth Symphony. Preparation is the key to success, and I specialize in coaching students for auditions.

I also focus on duets and tone studies to help you unlock the beautiful sound of this instrument.

Music theory is an integral part of each lesson (as well as some basic piano concepts which can be very useful to woodwind players). Jazz conception and improvisation is also a specialty!

About Ian
I've been teaching woodwinds (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) for the past 15 years and enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students of all ages. Music is one of the last professions that is truly learned through apprenticeship. Having a good private teacher is absolutely essential to your growth and development!

Over the years I've amassed wide variety of concepts and materials to speed your learning process and keep things FUN. I've taught all ages and abilities: new beginners (elementary and middle school level), older students just picking up the horn again, conservatory-bound high school students, amateur professionals, marching band & drum core kids, retirees looking for a fun hobby, professional musicians looking to expand their jazz knowledge, and more. We'll start at your level and expand from there! Styles I've performed in
include classical, jazz, latin, pop, fusion, rock, funk, and more.

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the SOUND of their instrument and to find their own voice. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, learning songs, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and jazz transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience. I'm currently adjunct faculty at USD Dept of Music, Mesa College, and have taught as a clinician/coach for numerous high school and middle school programs. In the past I’ve had the opportunity to study with many inspiring musicians and I enjoy passing on the tradition to new students!

I am a beginning Tenor Sax student and a senior citizen. I have played other instruments years ago, but never a woodwind instrument. Ian has been a marvelous instructor for me. Although I had never picked up a sax until December 2014, he already has taught me how to play several simple tunes and a number of scales. His patience and sensitivity to the appropriate pace is impecable. He also keeps me informed of other activities - concerts, recordings, community events to reinforce my interest. I would recommend Ian as a music teacher to anyone without reservation or hesitation.

Paul is an amazing teacher and mentor. Today we tackled harmonies while recording and it was so special to me. Paul is dedicated to his craft and his students. He prepares for each lesson, whether vocal or piano, and pushes me further along while reinforcing what we learned previously. He's just the perfect balance of strict and encouraging, always leaving me with a lesson that I had not anticipated and a whole lot of fun. I am so happy I found a teacher as great as Paul, he is truly one of a kind!

I graduated from NYU, earned a Mater degree and majored in Music Performance. Experienced teacher for 6 years. All ages are very welcome! I've been teaching students ranging from 3- 50 years old. I create different and effective learning methods according to different needs of students. Not only you'll have great quality of flute lessons but also you'll have strong music theory foundation. As a professional performer, I know how to train my students into professionals. Additionally, my students will play flute happily with high music standards.

About Julie
I have a very complete formal classical music education background. I have been learning piano when I was 5, and I have been learning flute when I was 9. I was educated in music school during middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate school (New York University). I also took many classes, which are related to woodwind teaching in college. I've started my teaching career since 2011, I am good at providing different teaching methods for different students. It would be really fun to work with me, you will definitely like playing flute and piano.

I worked in an orphanage when I was a sophomore. I worked as a general music tutor, some of them were kids who needed special cares, and I did a successful work there. I taught them how to play with music.

And I have organized four solo flute concerts and other different kinds of
chamber and orchestra concerts. You will definitely learn more than you thought form me!!
