Bill T.

Brooklyn, NY

I think the flute can produce such beautiful and colorful sounds and is a tool for great expression. Therefore, in lessons, covering all the basics of proper tone production, breath support, vibrato, musicality and technique will ensure a solid foundation with which even the highest levels of success can be built upon. I teach these concepts through the use of various exercises, etude/method books, as well as duet books which are incredibly essential for musical development and are also fun!

About Bill

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, therefore, lessons are designed to fit the student individually. My teaching style is molded to satisfy each students wants and needs. I also like to focus on developing proper playing habits. I see it as my job to help my students understand and develop the proper techniques to eliminate bad habits in order for them to be the best they can be on their instrument. Lessons are about having fun making music, learning, and improving.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs, music stands and keyboard for harmonic discussions.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to bring their own music notebook and their own instrument. They may also need to purchase their own lesson books when the time comes.

*** Specialties ***
I can help my students learn how to play in a variety of styles ranging from classical (solos, chamber music, etudes, etc.) to jazz (improvisation, harmony, etc.). Whether they're working on a song to play at school, a NYSSMA or All County solo, or just learning for fun, I will help them play to the best of their ability.

Our 8-year-old daughter is very happy studying with Bill. He has enough patience to guide the young student through the pieces that are challenging, and while practice at home is still key for the student to be able to play, Bill has been instrumental in ensuring that our kid is playing the flute with the best practices.

He is always in good humor, and flexible in fitting us into his schedule.

Lynn L.

Brooklyn, NY

I am a professional Saxophonist (who doubles on flute for big-bands, jazz ensembles, etc. ) I am not a professional flute player by any means, however, I can get you working up to an intermediate level on the instrument. I can also help you improvise at any level.

About Lynn

Lynn L. is a graduate from the Eastman School of Music, with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Saxophone Performance and Education.
Known for her versatility, Lynn performs with a wide array of musical projects that include: Gabriel Alegria’s Afro Peruvian Jazz Orchestra, Frank London & The Shekinah Big Band, Red Baraat, Al Chez & The Brothers of Funk, The Dorian Wallace Free Sound Ahn-semble, Holy Hand Grenade, Dave Mancini & Chet Catallo, Soulsystem Orchestras, Pitchblak Brass Band, Paradigm Shift, and Sharabi. She has also had the privilege of working alongside Conor Oberst, Les McCaan,
Randy Brecker, Wycliffe Gordon, DIVA, Mocean Worker, and The Temptations.

In addition to performing, she is a trained Teaching Artist for Lincoln Center Education and Midori & Friends. She is also an instructor for Mannes Prep at The New School.

Lynn was born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY, and is a Conn-Selmer artist. 

*** Lesson Details ***
In addition to the fundamentals (Tone, Rhythm, Technique, Ear-Training, Sight-Reading), I also like to tie-in music theory, composition, and improvisation along the way. I believe in setting short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals that are specific to the student and their needs and wants. I also believe in the benefit of having the student bring in songs or materials that they are interested in, and designing lessons around their interests. I am patient, creative, and willing to move at any pace that is right for you.

Through my experience as an educator I understand that every student is different, and therefore, my job is to guide and facilitate learning, while making the process as enjoyable as possible! My approach is customized to bring out your strengths and interests, while also ensuring that you have a solid foundation on your instrument. In addition, I am professionally trained in both jazz & classical music, and I perform regularly with working bands of all types and genres.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, piano, guitars, clarinet, sax, flute, amps, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are expected to have an instrument, and eventually selected method-books which will be decided upon for each student based on their needs, goals, or level.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students, from beginner to professional levels of all ages.

Skills and teaching techniques vary specifically per individual, but may include saxophone technique (technical facility, tone, scales, overtones), improvisation (jazz as well as other styles), sight reading, music theory, ear training, transcription, composition, and repertoire development in all styles of music (jazz, classical, pop, funk, world, etc.)

Nadia B.

New York, NY

A classically-trained flutist, Nadia has been teaching flute for many years. A summa cum laude graduate of New York University in Music Performance, she excels at teaching students how to play flute in a way that emphasizes body awareness and comfort in positioning and holding the flute. Nadia also emphasizes whole musicianship in her lessons, incorporating theory and other elements of music into lessons to facilitate a deeper understanding of the music. She is a friendly, encouraging and dedicated teacher who aims to teach each student according to his or her needs and interests. See you in class! :)

About Nadia

My approach as a piano and flute teacher is to endow each student with the skills and tools needed to improve his/her playing ability, increase musical expression and cultivate continued musical growth both in lessons and in practice time. With nine years of teaching experience, I understand that each student’s learning style, goals and interests vary, and I work to engage and delight every student.

My training in Music Performance at New York University, from which I graduated Summa Cum Laude, as well as my three-year, 1600-hour training to become a certified teacher of the Alexander T
echnique, which I completed in 2012, influence my teaching. The Alexander Technique is a method for integrating breathing, movement and postural support. It is invaluable for musicians as a tool to increase performance ability and a sense of ease in the body, as well as for injury prevention and pain management.

Prior to NYU, I studied at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), where I acted as principal flutist of the orchestra and wind ensemble in addition to receiving a scholarship as the flutist of the Liberace Woodwind Quintet.

My musical training started well before university, however. My first instrument was piano, which I studied throughout my childhood and adolescence, with further study at NYU with Jon Holden. I started learning the flute at the age of 10 and studied privately with Laurel Zucker throughout high school, continuing my study with her at CSUS. I then continued my flute study with Gary Schocker, both privately and at NYU.

I continue to improve my knowledge and understanding of music through frequent performances, master classes and study. My goal as a teacher is to teach with the aim of aiding the student’s musical development and provide the student with the skills to continue to learn on his/her own between lessons and beyond.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are organized around a student’s current level, goals and difficulties. I meet students wherever they are in their musical development. During the lesson, I address essential musical elements like tone, technique and musicality and offer new ideas in an environment where rich musical learning can take place.

My training as a certified Alexander Technique teacher allows me to offer physical suggestions for playing the instrument, at any ability level.

I encourage students to choose repertoire and find their own unique musical style, preferences and tastes.

I look forward to joining you on your own musical journey, and seeing how I can help you along the way!

Tristan C.

Brooklyn, NY

Our lessons will be tailored to fit your needs and demands of flute playing. For players just starting out, we focus mainly on producing a good sound by training the lips and embouchure. This is the foundation of good flute playing. From there we learn the fingerings of all the notes in relation to scales and basic melodies. Most of this is done without the aid of sheet music, we will use our ears and memorizing techniques to absorb the information. For intermediate to advanced players, I have a large library of flute literature spanning multiple genres. We'll learn and work on what it is you want to do. If you're not sure, I'll make suggestions based upon what I think you can handle.

About Tristan

-BFA in Performance from The Newschool for Jazz and Contemporary Music, 2011.
-Private Teacher BnB Music
-Freelance jazz/classical woodwind player (NYC,DC, and Chicago)

I've been teaching since I was an undergrad in New York City. I've taught college saxophone players how to play flute, vocalists how to scat bebop over standard songs, high school age kids, children just getting started, adults picking up a new hobby, spouses wanting to learn an instrument to play for their anniversary, the list goes on. I pride myself on balancing what a student needs vs. what they want during my lesson
s. I do my very best to give my students the kind of information that ignites them to practice and discover things on their own. I want to empower my students through music and find new ways grow and learn with them. Thanks for reading that paragraph!

Tristan is an excellent teacher

Tristan is an unusual combination of an excellent musician and wonderful teacher. He has been teaching my 15 year old son the saxophone for the past 6 months and is always on time, very enthusiastic, well organized and supportive. I can't recommend him enough.

Natural teacher, great rapport

Tristan has been teaching my daughter flute for four months, and she has learned a lot more than she previously knew, even though she had a private flute teacher for the past 6 years. Tristan has a way of giving constructive instruction in such a positive way, my sensitive daughter never feels like it is criticism but rather encouragement. Because she is already a fairly skilled flautist they can dive right into working on music and refining technique, and Tristan brings her a variety of interesting and challenging pieces to work on. Because he is a flautist too they can play together, which inspires her to improve to keep pace with him. He explains things so clearly that she easily gets the point. He is a talented musician and a natural teacher, and has a great rapport with kids & teens. My daughter really enjoys her weekly lessons.

Gets kids, keeps it interesting

Tristan is teaching my 10 yr old piano and my 12 year old saxophone. He comes to our house and has been totally reliable. He very quickly had a good read on each of them and pushes them appropriately hard while varying things up enough to keep things interesting and fun. We've been very pleased.
