Private Flute Teacher

I've been playing the flute most of my life and studied with a few of the best flute professors in the country. I have been teaching privately for 7 years. My teaching style is very flexible, though I expect dedication and hard work from my students. As my student you will learn not only flute, but you will gain a general knowledge of music theory and harmony, knowledge of musical phrasing and interpretation, as well as proper movement and body alignment similar to Alexander techniques.

Kelley is SO good at explaining things and she hears everything. You’re not going to get away with slacking, but this is a great thing. You learn so much deeper.

Specializing in saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano, I have experience in both public and private after-school programs, as well as in-home lessons settings. My formal music training began at the age of five in Vilnius Lithuania with the famous Vladimir Tchekassin. Since then, I have excelled in my saxophone studies at the Vilnius Conservatory and at the Music Academy in Cologne Germany while pursuing an active performing career. Most recently, in 2005, I followed my passion for teaching music by completing an advanced Instructor program in Instrumental Pedagogy at the Music Academy in Cologne.

Great instructor, extremely patient and flexible with location. Even spent extra time showing me new materials, interesting songs to practice, and where to get my sax looked at for cheap.

Private Flute Teacher

I have been coaching woodwind players and freelancing for the last 10 years in Los Angeles, New York, and back home in New Hampshire. Growing up, I heard my sister practicing the clarinet couldn't wait to get started. Once I started in 4th grade, I played in every class meeting and even played a duet with my principal in 5th grade during morning announcements. I play creative music of all genres and will help each student find music that they enjoy playing.

Music lessons are an opportunity to facilitate skill acquisition, self-expression, and strategic planning to meet new goals. Ideally the teacher and student agree to treat each musical idea with a unique attention, where the student learns by way of the teachers experience and insightful guidance, and the teacher also learns through live interaction with the student. I believe this type of learning to be possible for all levels of students and even more natural outside of an academic institution than inside of one.

Chris is a wonderful teacher! I had a couple of lessons with him to prepare for my Grad School auditions. and he provided me with the feedback I needed in a supportive style. Even though I was only able to have a couple of lessons they were quite meaningful and I would definitely recommend him. He has great energy and is quite knowledgeable.
Mara
Chris loves teaching woodwinds and it shows! He is amazing at bassoon as well as clarinet, flute, and shakuhachi. He’s great with breath control, musicality, and tailoring lessons to students strengths and individual needs. Highly recommend!!
Roberta
Chris has an infectious love for music and woodwind instruments, and he shares this enthusiasm with his students. As a performer and teacher, he is well-versed in many styles of playing. He is patient, kind and intuitive about the needs of his students. I highly recommend Chris as a teacher!

My son has been studying with Mr Thomas for 5 years! He is a very talented musician/teacher and I’ve seen such progress in my sons playing over the years. He has helped him write his own pieces and prepped him for his orchestra performances. “Mr. Thomas is really fun to play music with and you learn a lot. He even helped me with transcribing a video game soundtrack that I loved into my recital piece”! We highly recommend Mr. Thomas!
Eunice
My son took clarinet lessons in-person and then transitioned to online when COVID happened. He tried piano and violin before but clarinet is the first instrument that Micah was super excited about. He learned and improved so much with the one on one instruction with Thomas. He says clarinet is his passion now and looks forward to every lesson. I recommend Thomas to teach your child. He is patient, kind and can find ways to motivate kids to play at their best.
Elizabeth Fryer
As a group Clarinet and Flute teacher with Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's, Thomas Giles created an engaging and inspiring music learning curriculum for his students. At each recital all of his students were able to introduce themselves, the piece they have learned, and a bit of history or commentary to go along. Throughout online learning Dr. Giles continued a supportive and creative environment, even through zoom, where each of his students composed and performed their own piece. If you are looking for your student to come away from lessons with a high level of ability and confidence on their instrument look no further than Dr. Giles, they will have the added bonus of learning important skills such as public speaking and presenting. They may even take away some composition and arranging skills!

I have been teaching flute for 10 years. I recently was an adjunct instructor at NYU where I taught flute lessons to undergraduate and certificate students while completing my Masters. I hold a private studio in NYC. I am very understanding and helpful in lessons. I try my hardest to explain things in as many ways to help students learn individually, as every student learns in different styles.

Sarah is an excellent flute instructor! Learning online during COVID has been a great experience. Sarah has found ways to make it easy - such scanning her notes to me and sending me recordings after the class. Her lessons are exciting, as I have been working on music I enjoy in addition to music Sarah recommended. I definitely recommend her for online lessons. I look forward to when we can return in person too.

"I would highly recommend Bill as a flute teacher. He is a wonderful flautist, himself, in addition to being so skilled at several other instruments. Bill is very professional, kind, patient, and has always made me feel that he is interested in understanding where I would like to go, in terms of the kind of music I would like to play and the level of proficiency I am aiming to attain. I picked up my flute after 40 years of not touching it (since I was a teenager) and I'm so happy I did. Like many of the other students who have responded on this page, I have learned so much from Bill and have really enjoyed both his lessons, and my personal journey of practice and improvement as a flautist."
