Private Flute Teacher

'm a full-time musician in the music industry for 13 years now performing with such artists as J.C. Chasez (N'Sync), Tony-award winner Alice Ripley along with several theater companies. I've also coached multiple band programs for 4 years now. Success comes from having a thorough understanding of each instrument I play. This allows for multiple approaches to learning each instrument, rapid development of the student and involving fun teaching techniques. You'll learn fast and enjoy doing it!

About Jesse

Music lessons were such a chore in my childhood. My mother drudgingly dragged me to lessons every week and forced me to practice at least once a week before my next lesson. I soon met a new teacher who offered a different perspective and genuinely made playing music fun.

I can honestly say that it changed my life.

I wouldn't come to understand how until much later. I couldn't have even imagined becoming a professional musician until college but I was certainly given the tools to be successful in whatever I pursued living in such a demanding and competitive world. Self-confidence, active critical thinking skills, consistent work ethic, maintaining a healthy imagination, a lifelong appreciation for the arts. These all stem from my time in lessons and later my career in music.

As a professional musician in the San Diego and Los A

ngeles area, I perform regularly with many different music groups and solo artists including Frankie J, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Winds, Sure Fire Soul Ensemble and many more. I have also coached the band programs at Helix, Hoover, Del Norte and Rancho Buena Vista High Schools on all woodwinds.

Originally a classically-trained saxophonist (concert band, orchestral, solo literature), I currently hold a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Music emphasis in Jazz from California Institute of the Arts and Bachelors of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University. I specialize in teaching intermediate and advanced students but also work very efficiently with beginners.

In the spirit of my previous teachers, I encourage new and fun methods of music instruction while still reinforcing the basics. All with the idea of having fun while playing music!

Thank you for your consideration.

I have been working with Jesse for a few years now. I am bummed that the subject section of this review only lets me select one subject. Jesse has helped me with ear training, theory and composition, piano, performance, harmony, and overall musician advice. I cannot think of a more authentic and caring mentor and teacher out there that could be as efficient and helpful as Jesse has been to my career. I have seen a lot of progress in my musical career and my confidence as a musician has grown thanks to Jesse! He genuinely cares about the art and his students, he gets involved in their music careers and makes sure that the lesson is learned. He is familiar with many approaches and works hard for his students. Music is very lucky to have Jesse as a teacher!

I highly recommend lessons with Jesse, he makes playing fun!

Excellent first lesson! I’m so excited to continue my lessons with Paul!

I'll get right to the point. Paul's personality made it extremely easy for me not only to be comfortable but to feel really appreciated. I was fearful that Paul may feel like, "oh great another person who THINKS he has something but can't sing a lick!" I experienced the exact opposite. Within 15 minutes he located what has been my most frustrating issue. I felt like I was already ahead of the game and we hadn't even started yet! Paul has the rare balance of a sense of humor and still following an agenda to meet my goal. Thanks to Paul I really feel like I can, and WILL reach all my goals. AND enjoy the journey to them!! Can't wait for the next lesson!

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!

My 7 year-old son began learning recorder with Leasia as a complete beginner. He is taking lessons with Lesia as a music teacher for the past 9 months. She is patient and very friendly. Lesia taught him many things so far, such as how to read notes, all the fundamental techniques of recorder playing including correct posture, hand position, fingering and breathing. Also, my son learned how to play simple classic melodies like "Mary had a little lamb”, “Old Old McDonald had a farm”, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and etc. We are gradually transitioning from recorder to flute now. My son looks forward to Lesia’s lessons, and is enjoying music. I recommend Lesia to everyone and anyone interested in learning to play recorder and flute.

Lesia is a great flute teacher! Since my daughter started taking lessons from Lesia twise a week she started making a lot more progress; part of success is Lesia’s advanced teaching skills and another part is motivation to learn and practice a lot more that my daughter got when learning from Lesia how to become a great flute player

Private Flute Teacher

Experienced flute teacher of 10 years. I have taught ages 5-70! All ages and levels are welcome to inquire. I provide customized lessons designed just for you, because there is not just one way to play the flute. I will always be encouraging as you learn, because music lessons should be fun! I am passionate about teaching flute and passing on what I have learned from my mentors over the years. Send me a message to inquire about lessons! I look forward to hearing from you.

About Jennifer

My Philosophy and Teaching Model:
Have you ever had a teacher that only explains things one way, and sometimes their way just doesn’t "click"? Have you sat at a desk and asked yourself, “How is this applicable to MY life?”

As your teacher, I never want you to feel like flute lessons are more about a standardized curriculum than the quality of your music education. I am here to help you in your quest to become a better musician.

So, my teaching method is simple (and all about you!). I will offer you lesson plans, assignments, and performance opportunities designed specifically for you. In other words, I customize everything we do to address your specific goals. After our first lesson together, I will create a curriculum just for you. I will work with you to reach your goals, and guide you toward new ones as you progress in your f

lute studies.

I understand how important private lessons are to your music education, so I am offering you an experience designed just for you, so you can become the musician you want to be.

My experience:
I started playing the flute when I was in fourth grade, and I began private lessons at 10 years old. I began participated in solo festivals and competitions around age 12. I played in my high school's marching band, concert band, pit orchestra, and symphony orchestra. I have played in three different flute choirs and a youth orchestra. I earned two performance degrees from the University of North Texas (Bachelor of Music) and Stony Brook University (Master of Music). I have performed with orchestras in the United States, Canada, and Europe. I have played in pit orchestras for musicals and operas. I have auditioned for professional orchestras, and I have maintained teaching studios in California, Texas, and New York.

I am so grateful to all my mentors who have inspired me throughout my career. My teachers include notable flutists Dr. Mary Karen Clardy, Dr. Elizabeth McNutt, Francine Ross Pancost, Dr. James Scott, Terri Sundberg, Jim Walker, and Carol Wincenc.

I have listened to Jennifer as she gave flute lessons to several young beginning students. I observed that she truly cares about her students and invests herself in their progress. She has a creative teaching style, always coming up with new ways to approach the challenges of each individual student. She spends time to discover the students’ goals and structures their lesson plans accordingly. Jennifer is also a good communicator with the parents of younger students, making sure they are informed and inviting them to observe lessons if they wish. I’m sure you’ll find her a delight to work with.

You'll be playing songs in no time! With over eight years of teaching experience with students of all ages, I know how to tailor your experience to you or your child's goals and experience level. I believe that we get the most joy from playing our instrument by developing strong fundamentals so that new musical challenges are enlightening rather than frustrating.

About Julian

I began teaching in-home lessons to K-12 and adult students in 2010. Since then I have:
1) Taught thousands of fun and engaging lessons to over 150 students
2) Helped high school students attain successful college music auditions
3) Had students on saxophone AND clarinet place successfully in All-State and All-County Honors Bands and Gifted and Talented Ensembles

Whether your student is excelling and wants new musical challenges to stay engaged or you think they could enjoy music but are struggling to keep up, I have experience with that situation. I am a passionate performer myself, and I released my debut jazz album in early 2018. I truly believe that music is one of the greatest sources of joy in the world.

I played the sax through high school and then stopped playing until I retired ~ 4 years ago. I started lessons with Julian when he lived nearby and have continued with "skype" lessons since he moved out of the area. He's a great teacher: motivational, thorough knowledge of both classical and jazz, kind, good sense of humor, and a good communicator. I highly recommend him.

I highly recommend Julian as a saxophone teacher. My son started playing saxophone and taking lessons with Julian three years ago, when my son was 9 years old. Julian is patient with my son and has built a good rapport with him. Julian has always encouraged him to try his best and to not be discouraged when he makes mistakes, and that has made my son comfortable with Julian and confident enough to push himself. Also, Julian is reliable and punctual, and is good at communicating through text and email.
