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
Bill is multi-instrumentalist, jazz musician, composer, arranger and educator. He developed a strong connection to music early in life through some family tradition, encouraging parents and many inspiring and influential teachers. He has gone on to perform alongside a number of noteworthy artists and ensembles and has toured extensively overseas and throughout North America.

His love for music came to life though performances with several ensembles in public school, regional big bands and his own jazz saxophone quartet. He is a graduate of the Purchase College Conservatory of Music's Jazz Studies program and has recently become a graduate of New Jersey City University's M.M. Multiple Woodwind Performance program.

Following two years performing abroad on cruise ships and the national tour of Young Frankenstein: The Musical, he was dr
awn back to New York City. Performing regularly on piccolo, flute, alto flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and all saxophones, he is proving to be valued asset in the NYC music scene.

Bill performs regularly with his group, Bill Todd and the Sixth Generation, while also working as a Broadway pit musician, a sideman and a private music teacher.

*** 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.

What I learn on first Contact for Flute Lesson.

Correct posture will reduce pain in your arms and wrists because the weight of the flute is not resting on the shoulders. By correctly aligning the flute with your head and neck, pain in the arms will be reduced.
The position of the flutist’s head is closely related to the neck position. If your head is properly balanced on your neck, then you will be able to bring your arms effortlessly up to your flute without pain. If your neck tenses, your spine will tense up as well. In particular, playing softly tends to cause tension in the neck, because it takes more concentration to play with food tone softly

My 5 years old son, enjoyed and looked forward each week for his piano sessions with Bill. Bill was very patient, knowledgeable, and understanding. While waiting during Kevin's sessions, my daughter and I began to learn as well as enjoy the piano.
I strongly recommend Bill to anyone, and commend him for sharing his skills. Keep up the exceptional work Bill.

My daughter took lessons with Shannon for several years. Shannon provided great instruction and lots of encouragement to boost my daughter's confidence and raise her performance level. She provided music that my daughter actually enjoyed playing. My daughter was always challenged, but never discouraged. Shannon was always professional and pleasant, and ran her lessons on time.

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

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page. Before anthing else, music should be fun. If you want to learn and get better at playing, listening, and experiencing music in your daily life, then it would be my privilege to help you do that. I grew up in a musical household, thankfully, and I have come to appreciate and value my upbringing more and more as I've gotten older. I see my teaching as a way to share the joy of music making that I have been fortunate enough to engage with since I was a kid.
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. Let's get started.

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.

I teach flute at the New School for Leadership and the Arts. I'm happy to work with beginners who are also learning how to read music and play in ensembles.

I teach to the abilities, passions, and ambitions of the individual student, ever pushing their musicianship and proficiency on the instrument.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

About Monica
I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in music at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years gigging in Berlin, Germany and teaching adults and teenagers. However, I've always also enjoyed working with kids; especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. I have the most experience teaching piano, and I think it's the best instrument to start on, if you don't know much about music, but flute was my first instrument, and singing is my forte!

Flute is a wonderful instrument, and I love to play and teach it.

We will work on basic methodologies to start, and then move towards classical pieces, jazz pieces, or both depending on what you would like to learn.

This instrument is very closely tied to the voice and singing therefore, my lessons center around making the flute very connected to the ears by teaching music theory and ear training as we learn the technique. This method will bring the student deeper into the world of music than would ordinarily be achieved by simple technique exercises.

About David
Hello everyone!

My name is David, and I am a NYC based performer, producer, and educator. I have been teaching in the area ever since I left high school to students both young and old. I have a great deal of experience, and offer a focused, yet light and enjoyable lesson that allows for individual input and unique experiences.

I enjoy making sure that while my students are learning the fundamentals of their instrument, they are also learning about the ideas of music theory, ear training, and music appreciation. I feel that these concepts are just as important as learning where to put your fingers, and I think that this approach creates a well rounded player that understands the real depth and amazing potential of music as an art.

About Rebecca
Hello! Thank you for coming to view my profile! I am a junior at the Mannes School of Music studying Flute Performance with Judith Mendenhall. I graduated from Great Neck South High School and Manhattan School of Music Precollege. I have had a wide age range of flute students whom I taught how to read music as well as the flute itself. These students then went on to participate in NYSSMA. I have always had a passion for learning and teaching and hope to instill my passion upon you! Don't hesitate to send me any questions you may have!

**The availability drop down is a bit confusing. During the winter and summer, I will be able to teach in/around Great Neck AND in NYC, whereas during the Fall and the Spring I will be living in NYC and ONLY able to teach there. If you have any questions, please send me a message and we can work out our a

With lessons tailored to students' musical goals, including audition and NYSSMA prep, beginner and intermediate flute and piccolo students of all ages will build a foundation of music theory, technique, and proper breathing to see themselves reaching new musical milestones in no time. I have band, orchestra, and chamber ensemble experience, and I offer a safe space to discover and explore new genres of music.

I have a passion for teaching flute and piccolo to anyone interested in learning. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Flute Performance from Hofstra University, where I have played with the bands and orchestras, as well as various chamber ensembles, having premiered many contemporary works throughout my college career. I have experience playing in opera orchestras, as well as musical theater, and I have performed four times at the Long Island Flute Club Festival, with the Hofstra University Flute Choir.
For beginner to intermediate students of all ages, I enjoy helping them explore classical music and improvisation, while working with the student to see what other styles might interest them. I can teach students to read music, and work music theory into our lessons to build a solid foundation for success. From audition preparation and NYSSMA o
r anything in between, I will tailor our lessons to fit the student’s goals.
