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!

Music is a passion for a lifetime and gives hours of enjoyment and opportunites. Along with learning how to play the flute, you learn a musical language, build relationships with other musicians, discover the history of music and have opportunites for playing solo and in ensembles. Additionally, learning flute builds skills, confidence, endurance, enriches your life and adds beauty to the soul. Any age can begin pursuing the flute, a person is never too old to start or restart again. Everyone has their own musical voice to express and to share. All musicians are valuable and unique.
The early whisperings of the flute started when I was 9 years old. The first time I saw a flute, I immediately became enchanted with the instrument, which ignited a passion in my heart for playing. At the age of 13, I attended the Riverbend Institute of the Arts in Faribault, Minnesota. The encouragement I received there plunged me into a life filled with music. Shortly after, I was selected to play in the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony (GTCYS) for two years. This was an incredible experience as a young person, especially playing at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. I grew up in a nurturing community that opened up many creative opportunities and experiences and for that I am grateful. I am also thankful for all of the highly influential flute teachers that instilled skills and ...
