Learn how to play the Flute with Michael!

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!

HERE IS WHAT I DO IN THE FIRST LESSON : - Assess the Student's Levels for Progress and Interest. - Understand the Student's Goal(s). - Custom Design a Path of Study for Lasting Achievement. DISCOVER HOW ONLINE FLUTE LESSONS ACTUALLY OPEN UP YOUR CAPACITY TO LEARN FLUTE SKILLS FASTER THAN WITH "IN PERSON" LESSONS. And Without the Inconvenience of Travel Time ! Julie has perfected the art of providing appropriately challenging material so every student can learn how to practice effectively while providing an education of the student's entire person. A number of Julie's students who are musically skilled by the time they apply to college or university have won scholarships of $ 5,000.00 per year for four years even though they majored in other fields of interest such as medicine, engineering, architecture and the sciences. One of her more recent former students who she taught from the age of 7 through 17 submitted an audition recording to Brandeis University and was awarded the prestigious and sought after Leonard Bernstein Fellowship award which amounted to $ 20,000.00 per year for four years. In addition to teaching her online methods and techniques to students in over 30 states in the U.S. as well as Canada, England, Australia, Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, South Korea, The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Germany and South Africa. With Over 30 Years and 12,000 + FUN FILLED FLUTE LESSONS TAUGHT, Don't Miss The Wonderful Opportunity to Achieve Your Dreams ! My 30 years of teaching experience with an average study length of 8 years, my Flute Beginners quickly achieve Musical and Technical Artistry ! I teach the BEST WAY to align the head joint with where “your” upper lip and lower jaw should be positioned because if you don’t, your progress will slow down dramatically. I also teach the One Set of Critical Beginner Finger Techniques “Without the Flute” that will allow you to play fluently for years to come.” WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A "PROFESSIONAL MUSIC TEACHER" ? It's someone who DEDICATES their life to the education of their students. It's someone who has the EXPERIENCE and INTUITION to forge a pathway for each individual child and LOVES every moment of each lesson. NO TWO STUDENTS ARE ALIKE ! It's someone who has the TRAINING and VISION to teach multiple levels of interest from the casual learner to the Symphony bound performer. When your child studies with a "PROFESSIONAL TEACHER" they AWAKEN to a new level of learning and accomplishment, CREATE BETTER STUDY HABITS, DEVELOP a lifelong love and respect for others and allow confidence and contentment to seat well with their sense of self which in turn leads to success. THE “MASTERFUL FLUTE PLAYER” IS ALREADY INSIDE YOU !! Over the years of my nearly 4 decade career in Classical Music, I have crafted a teaching style that minimizes practice time, maximizes progress and allows my students, ages 7 through adult, to have fun while practicing. I began my music education wanting to be a recitalist and orchestral player but my career goals changed when I started teaching flute and saw how my students needed to have a more solid direction than what they were experiencing. I realized, largely due to Conservatory training in the art of teaching private flute lessons, that I had the insights into helping them achieve their aspirations to play the flute. The secret lies in removing excess physical movements on the flute and any emotional / intellectual preconceptions. Then, the percentage of practice time perspiration will diminish dramatically. Michelangelo, famously said, “The sculpture is already inside the rock, all you have to do is remove the excess stone”. All of this applies to learning the Flute. If you don’t get in touch with yourself and your Creative Spirit, it will never happen but implement the correct procedures in the proper order, then only the sky will be your limit. That is what my Flute teaching method is really about. Developing your “technical style” in such a way that your technique becomes effortless, uniquely yours and then....your musicality will have the tools to blossom. It is all based on the Japanese Principal of Kaizen. “Gradual but Continual Improvement by Taking Something Apart and Putting it Back Together in a Better Way.” There are THREE distinct levels of self-mastery to Flute Technique and several areas of specific skills within each level. I Explore Each One Separately and Then Combine Them All Into One Truly Integrated Technique.
