About Natsuki
Hello Students/Parents:

I have been playing saxophone for 18 years and currently I am playing professionally in the Los Angeles area. I have been teaching music for more than 8 years and have been able to find fun and creative methods for helping my students succeed.

I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and surrounded by a musical family. I started playing piano at age 4 and started playing saxophone at age 10. I continued my woodwind training in high school by learning to play flute and clarinet. After beginning saxophone, I found I had a passion for big band jazz music. I joined a big band for young musicians and played lead alto with the band for almost 6 years.

After graduating from high school, I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on scholarship where I studied performance and jazz composition. While I was in Bost
on, I was fortunate to play lots of gigs around town and was also a featured soloist on a number of recitals, recordings, and film scores.

In May 2010, I graduated from Berklee College of Music and moved to Los Angeles. Always maintaining a busy schedule, I have been performing with a number of talented musicians at several venues in the LA area. In addition to playing live shows, I have been recording for film/TV music.

I love all kinds of music: Classical, Pop, Jazz, Rock etc…
Some of my favorite artists/influences include:
Cannonball Adderley, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and many more

Thank you so much for stopping by my page and hope to work with you soon!

Best,
Natsuki

Cameron didn’t like his lesson, he LOVED it. It was his first lesson and Phil was extremely patient. He’s looking forward to future lessons and promises to practice! Thank you, Phil, we think we have a winner that will hopefully take time away from video games.

We are so delighted to have Luther teaching our girls the piano. Our eldest who is 7 has played for a while but we are really seeing a huge impact with his instruction. She is more excited to learn and even goes independently now to practice on her own in the middle of the week, which was really never the case and she really loved her last teacher of two years. After just 3 lessons ( with a gap in between the first two) we can see she has progressed more than she has in 6 months of weekly lessons. The thing that we really love is that he is not just there to make a dollar, and he does not want to waste your money and will give it to you straight! You couldn't ask for more! OUr youngest was so impressed now even she is showing an interest in the piano and she took over the second lesson and now we have gotten the 4 year old started as well. Very satisfied customers already. Looking forward to an awesome year!

Music lessons should be fun, encouraging and full of music that you love. They are an opportunity to learn something new, show your improvement, and receive correction, encouragement and praise. Students and instructors should play together frequently throughout and the time should be balanced with theory, technique and exercises, sight-reading, and performance and seasoned with introductions to a variety of music and styles. I like to encourage students to play because they love to play and to find the music that is an integral part of their soul, then to share that with others through performance. What do you want to do with or gain from your music? We will work toward your goals.

About Jennifer
Music is a huge part of my life and I love sharing that with others. Helping and seeing others discover and develop their talents and find joy in music is something I love.

I come from a musical family and have been singing and playing the piano since before I can remember. Flute (and piccolo) lessons began for me in the 7th grade and I participated in both concert and marching bands from there though college. Now I take regular opportunities to play with various groups of all sizes.

I have taught music (theory, flute, piano and vocal) to students of varying ages and backgrounds both individually and in groups. Working as the woodwind and marching assistant at my alma mater was a thrill and I enjoied seeing and helping students push themselves and reap the rewards of both talent and recognition for their efforts and accomplishments.


While participating in the Prince William Community Band, I had the opportunity to learn to play some percussion instruments and played in that section for a couple years. I have been a music director for several years and enjoy arranging music. It is never to late to start learning if you have the desire and persistence.

I have a wide range of experience in different genres of classical music having played in a variety of ensembles: orchestral to contemporary. In addition to learning the basics of flute playing, I can introduce students to extended techniques on the flute. I also believe that music lessons should be fun, and would LOVE to help you play your favorite music -- whether it's classical music, or your favorite song on the radio. More about my education and experience: I received my Bachelor of Music degree at Grand Valley State University (GVSU) in Michigan, and came to NY to pursue my Master of Music at NYU. During my time at GVSU, I played with the New Music Ensemble (NME), in addition to playing in orchestra and wind ensemble. At NYU, I am playing with the NME, Contemporary Music Ensemble (CME), and NYUO1 (orchestra). I can be heard on GVSU NME's latest album "return," and on the GVSU Symphonic Wind Ensemble's album "Under Western Skies." I hope to hear from you soon!

About Hannah
During my time at Grand Valley State University (GVSU), I was principal flutist in the GVSU Symphony Orchestra and the GVSU Symphonic Wind Ensemble (SWE). While part of the GVSU SWE, I was part of a recording project with them for trumpet concerti and can be heard on the album "Under Western Skies." The trumpet soloists on this album are Richard Stoelzel and Rex Richardson.

While a member of the GVSU NME, I was a part of a recording project featuring music composed by GVSU composition alumni for the album "return." I have been on mulitple tours with the GVSU NME: 2016 Midwest Tour, 2016 National Parks Tour, and 2018 National Parks Tour. The GVSU NME has also been featured on NPR's Performance Today series. In 2017, I performed at the New Music Gathering with the GVSU NME.

Now at NYU for my Masters degree, I am still active in orchestr
al and contemporary ensembles. Having played in band, orchestral, and chamber settings, I am able to help students improve in each of these classical music settings. In addition, I believe the student should also have a say in what they study in lessons. Meaning, I would also love to help students play other genres outside of the classical realm. I hope to hear from you soon!

Who can take lessons?
Anyone and everyone! Total beginners to experienced musicians. I gladly encourage and accept all flutists from any background with any level of experience! I believe each flute player has a unique voice that we can, together, study, practice, and hone into a beautiful sonority.

What will we do during the lesson? How do I prepare?
Lesson time is meant for learning new concepts/techniques/ways to practice. It is all about the exchange of information! Some portion of lesson time may be designated for duets, questions, music theory/history/ear training, etc. The majority of the lesson will be spent working on technique, rhythm, tone, repertoire, and whatever else the student may need. The individual student is expected to practice to prepare for each lesson - how much time is based on the individual flutist. Many factors contribute to deciding the appropriate amount of practice time, and together we will assess what works for the student and their goals.
