I enjoy working with all age levels and pride myself on being intensely positive. *** Lesson Details *** The focus of music lessons is to overcome problems and increase skill and enjoyment in performance. I always want to focus on what was done well and carefully work on skills that will increase enjoyment. I will play with you to model and help you self correct as you learn musical concepts and musicianship.

I've been teaching flute for over 10 years. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of flute skills.
Emphasis will be placed on performing the flute most naturally and using the least amount of effort, with a special attention to the basic principles of the ‘Alexander Technique,’ which professional musicians use to perform. Students will also have a tool to improve their breath control available during their lessons.
I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I welcome beginners as well as those with experience playing the flute. I have been trained in the Suzuki method, so I value learning aurally, though I will work on both music reading and learning by ear with my students.
I typically structure my lessons with warm-ups, tonalization exercises, scale work, and repertoire or music games. I am open to work on whatever my student brings to me, as well!
