My flute studio is based around setting a strong foundation to achieve the student's goals. Each flute lesson is tailored to the individual students needs and adjusted as they progress. Whether you are picking up the instrument for the first time, are a student auditioning for all-county orchestra, or just want to improve your playing, I can help you achieve your ideal musical self! For beginner students, lessons will focus on tone production, breath support, reading skills, rhythm, and technical development to form a strong base for continued development. Intermediate students will continue developing basic technical skills and music theory knowledge. They will begin applying their knowledge to standard repertoire. By focusing on musical context, students will begin to learn the more advanced concepts surrounding interpretation. Advanced students will continue to refine these concepts and artistry. Lessons will focus on applying and interpreting the musicality of advanced repertoire from the common practice as well as preparing for auditions and advanced performances. All students will work on achieving their individual goals whether they are playing for pleasure or working towards auditions. I am happy to work with whatever method book the student is comfortable with but I will recommend materials based on the student's level. Some of my preferred books are the Blocki Flute Method books, the Flute 101 books, and Trevor Wye's series of books however, I am comfortable working with band books or any other material you may have. If you would like to begin playing flute and have not yet purchased one, I do have some recommendations on what to look for. Instruments to look for are carried at any reputable store. Some of these brands are Yamaha, Jupiter, Gemeinhardt, Armstrong, Pearl, Trevor James, Artley, and many others. While these are costly if purchased new, it is fairly easy to find a very good deal at a similar price if you do a little searching. Additionally, many of these brands make modified, smaller instruments for young children or people with disabilities. For very young children, starting on a fife may be something to consider. If you are unsure what to purchase, please send me a message and I will help you with the purchasing process or even recommend some instruments that are for sale online. I am an experienced music teacher and musician. I have been playing flute since 2009 and teaching for nearly as long. Lessons are catered to each individual's needs and goals. Send me a message to see if I am a good fit for you!

My flute studio strives to develop exceptional flute facility, in-depth understanding of Classical music theory, and flute pedagogical methods in every student. Through which, each student subsequently learns behaviors that transcend flute playing, such as perseverance, self-awareness, critical thinking, self-motivation, self-confidence, and goal-setting to name a few. Elizabeth believes that each student has their own, unique method(s) of learning, and strives to play upon their strengths, creating an innovative learning environment that develops confidence in each individual. She understands that success looks different for each student, and strives to set attainable goals in each weekly lesson to set up each student for success. The flute pedagogy, or the practice of teaching the flute, that Elizabeth is practiced in includes multi-faceted backgrounds of the American, French, and Eastern-European flute schools. Her main teachers include Denis Bouriakov (principal flutist Los Angeles Philharmonic/UCLA Faculty), Erin Bouriakov (international soloist and former principal flute Seoul Philharmonic/UCLA faculty), Diana Morgan (orchestral musician and teacher), and John Barcellona (pedagogue and flute professor emeritus CSU Long Beach). The American School which represents superb technical facility, the French School which represents beauty of air, phrasing and color, and the Easter-European school of disciplined practice methods and technical development.
