*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

My son takes piano from Amber and I cannot say enough on how talented she is. She has so much patience and cares about her students. He responds well to her and is learning so quickly! She challenges him to continue to grow but does it in a way that is fun for a child his age. We think she is great!

Allston, MA

I have two years experience on private flute class, specializing in the beginner/intermediate student! All ages welcome.

In my flute class, I hope to establish a partnership with my students, not as an authority, but as a facilitator to motivate their passion for music. By empowering students, I hope they will realize how capable they are, and be guided by passion and love for diverse kinds of music.

Students will self-evaluate their song quality, rhythm and articulation using rubric and recording.

Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. And the music genres are depended on students' music taste.

About Gena
I majored in music education/ flute performance in my undergraduate and got a music education master degree at BU. I'm an easy-going person, and also interested in doing yoga, watch movies.

My teaching philosophy is a student-centered teaching model. In my class, I, as a facilitator, but authority, hope to build a bridge that is connecting both teacher's music world and students' music world! Now, Let's have fun!

We will learn basic breath technique, fingering, and easy songs through playing the games. Students will able to self-evaluate their song quality, rhythm, and articulation through the rubric and recording.

Virginia Beach, VA

I have been playing jazz and classical flute, alto flute, and piccolo for over 15 years. My emphasis is on keeping students engaged and interested. As a composer and arranger, I can create custom exercises, short pieces, and arrangements of pop, video game, jazz, etc. tunes to facilitate student progress. I am also willing to collaborate with school band and orchestra teachers to optimize student success!

About Caroline
I am a composer, conductor, arranger, and flautist with a BA in Music from American University in Washington, DC! I have been playing the flute for over 15 years and have had almost 10 years of formal composition and theory training thus far.

I teach beginning and intermediate flute players of all ages and in all styles! Since my primary background is in composition, I am able to create custom exercises and arrangements of the music in which my students are interested. This includes music from TV shows, videogames, Top 40 hits, and everything in between! Building confidence while enjoying practicing and skill-building on the instrument are my goals. I am also willing to collaborate with school band and orchestra teachers to further enhance a student's learning and performance.

I also teach beginning music theory and songwriting! As
a poet, songwriter, and composer, I want to share what I've learned about improvisation, refining raw ideas, and getting ideas from one's mind onto the page. Creative expression is a tremendously important part of life, and understanding the foundations of music can help us appreciate and interact with it on a higher, more fulfilling level!

My studio is in Hilltop, Virginia Beach. I am comfortable teaching a variety of styles and ages - nothing is too "out there" for me! I look forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve your goals!

I had the pleasure of performing Caroline's original composition Onwards, Ever Against the Snow both for recital, as well as jury boards. The score is written for piano and alto saxophone and is written as a programmatic work featuring a Beethoven-ian hero. The piece received glowing reviews from internationally acclaimed composers and applied musicians at both the recital and jury boards. Take lessons with Caroline confidently!

I worked with Caroline for her senior composition recital, performing a solo violin piece that she wrote. She was incredibly easy and pleasant to work with; we had several rehearsals together leading up to the recital, and she was always patient, kind, helpful, and clear when helping me interpret her piece. She was very professional to work with in terms of scheduling rehearsals as well, and was always open and prompt when communicating about scheduling. Working with Caroline was extremely enjoyable and easy!

I studied and played flute for 13 years, and have particular experience in 20th century music. I with studied Greer Ellison, a premier Baroque flutist, and teacher of Alexander Technique, and so have a solid foundation in breath management and alignment. If you find that your shoulders and back get particularly tense and tired while playing, I would be able to help you fix that.

About Natalie
My name's Natalie, and I'm a voice and flute teacher! I studied Vocal Performance and Flute Performance at the University of California Santa Cruz, and got my Masters of Music in Vocal Arts at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

I specialize in classical voice and opera, though I believe a good vocal technical foundation is applicable to all musical styles. I also teach music theory, for those just getting into music, and for those who would appreciate a refresher. Since I studied both flute and voice, I am especially well trained in breath management and alignment. The breath is the most important thing in both flute and voice. It's what sends our sound out into the world!
