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!
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.
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! :)
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.
