Private Flute Teacher

I have been teaching flute for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees from Pensacola Christian College (B.S. in Music Ed., 1992), Hobe Sound Bible College (A.A., 1993) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Church Music, 1996). I have experience teaching all of the band instruments, violin, guitar, and piano. I'm an enthusiastic, upbeat person who greatly enjoys working with people of all ages.

Private Flute Teacher

I love helping students succeed, and to feel a sense of accomplishment as well as having a good time while playing. I try to make every lesson something exciting to look forward to, leaving them wanting to practice before every lesson, whether it be learning a new piece, improvisations, singing, or any new activities. I consider myself as a guide, not someone that pushes or dictates students. It is my interest to create a positive, kind, genuine, fun, and creative atmosphere during a lesson.

About April

I have picked up and loved the flute for 16 years, and I wish to share this passion and creativity with students. I have had the opportunity to study under Emily McKay and Marco Granados, as well as perform in masterclasses with Trevor Wye, William Bennett, and Lorna Mcghee. As a recent Denver citizen, I wish to grow my roots as a teacher who fosters flute playing as a fun and outside-the-box activity.
I have started teaching private lessons since high school, and into my college and graduate school years. I have taken classes on pedagogy and teaching artistry in creative ways, such as teaching students to do improvisations and asking questions in order to get them engaged in the learning process. I have played classical, jazz, pop, and latin music, and can teach an array of different genres. I believe music contributes to a well-ro

unded individual, and will gladly accept students of all experiences and ages. My goal will to always keep the student engaged and having fun! It is important to play from the heart, and think of music as the spirit of sharing and collaboration.

April is a great teacher! I've had a lot of fun working on my technique with her and I've enjoyed her teaching style. As a person who's been playing for over 10 years, it's awesome to have a teacher that's willing to keep teaching you new things.

April shared several innovative breath exercises to help round out my tone ... excited to be on this journey back to my music! I appreciate her focus on finding joy and freedom in playing.

Kelly is a very friendly, skillful and patient teacher. I was very nervous to take my first flute lesson as an adult. However Kelly being a professional, she eased any nervousness that I had and gave me the confidence that I needed. I have learned so much and I cannot recommend her enough! I love playing the flute thanks to Kelly. She is the best!

Elizabeth LaCoste
Kelly is not only a fantastic teacher but is also an exceptionally talented flutist. She whole-heartedly is passionate about excelling in her own life which translates to high expectations for her students while maintaining a light-hearted learning environment, mirrored by her optimistic personality. She understands the inner mechanisms of teaching flute to people of any ages due to her excellent education and her extreme intelligence. I would sincerely recommend her to a flutist of any age or ability.

Students will be learning and working in 2 spheres - technique & musicianship. Within those areas fundamentals, tone development, music reading, music theory and history, performing, self critique, and much more will be explored and discussed. Each student will be graded against themselves - I expect that each student makes progress appropriate for them and their ability level. Students are expected and encouraged to be active participants in their music education, so communication is key!

About Alysha

I am a passionate educator, no matter what subject I happen to find myself teaching. There is nothing quite so rewarding as the dawning comprehension of a new skill on a child's face, or their look of triumph after a great accomplishment.

As a teacher, i prefer not to be overly demanding of my students, and instead seek to tailor lessons to their individual interests and tastes. If you enjoy the music, you will want to play, and thus practice more! I prefer to focus on teaching the underlying skills and techniques that will make students successful - practice strategies, sight-reading, and problem solving skills.

I understand that everybody learns differently. I take pride in individualizing every lesson to meet the unique needs of the student. I find so much joy and passion helping someone learn the flute, which has been in my life for over 19 years. Learning is the flute is fun and enjoyable, so lessons with me are too! :)

I attended the University of Akron (2010-2012) for my Master's Degree in Flute Performance and Kent State University (2006-2010) for my Bachelor's Degree in Flute Performance.

"More than met my expectations, Kristin quelled my anxieties, quickly built rapport and built a solid base on just our first lesson."
Warren
"Terrific first lesson. Almost immediate improvement in tone thanks to a few simple, easy to remember cues. Stretching exercises and body stance were emph
asized as a foundation to build for quality sound as well as care to prevent injury.
I almost can't wait for my next lesson."

"I'm writing this only after the first lesson. Before my son was so frustrated with the flute he even hated the idea of taking lessons. I told him we'll
try it and see how he feels after the class. Michael is patient, encouraging and knowledgable. He corrected my son's playing and tuned his flute. Most of all he gave my son confidence. My son told me I hit the bulls eye with my selection of his teacher. He said he can't wait to go next week! When watching I thought they were going quickly but my son seemed to catch on just as quick. I think Michael is aware of his pace and adjust to his students level. His location is isolated and idea for one on one teaching. There was plenty of parking and his location is easy to find."

"It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He det
ailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him."

"Frannie Brodeur has our highest recommendation. Frannie has been teaching our son since he was 7 and thanks to her expert guidance he is, at 15, preparin
g to audition for Juilliard in a few years. Frannie understands how to work with children and teens: our son always feels encouraged not squashed, respected and appreciated rather than criticized. After 8 years, he still looks forward eagerly to his lessons. Frannie is unfailingly sensitive, patient, and humorous, and it's very clear she enjoys kids. Frannie is also a remarkable flutist, and our son aspires to her gorgeous sound. As a professional musician, Frannie is able to meet students at whatever their skill level."
