Private Flute Teacher

I have been performing and teaching lessons as my full time career for over 15 years.

I teach ages 7 through adult, beginners through advanced, and enjoy customizing each student's lessons according to their own goals. I mostly teach and perform classical music, but also incorporate other styles of music into lessons at the student's request.

Lessons often incorporate aspects of mindfulness, meditation, and body awareness practices, and I believe in giving students a strong foundation in ear training, improvisation, and music theory.

I'm an adult who is finally getting around to learning the flute (it's always been on my bucket list). I had my first lesson with Emily yesterday and it was great - exactly what I was looking for. Emily is gracious and encouraging. By the end of the session, we even played a duet! So fun.
Jonathan
Emily has been quite helpful in helping me explore my direction in flute-playing--a good mix of 'working with' and guiding me; quite observant about where I go astray, yet encouraging and ease-making.
Barbara H.
Emily is very clear, cheerful, supportive and encouraging! So impressed at how quickly she got me feeling confident. Left my first lesson feeling excited to go forward and clear idea about how to practice. Can't wait for our next lesson!

Tired of being frustrated by the pace of self-teaching or is your child bored with the progress in school band class? Are you an adult who never played an instrument but are really interested in learning a wind instrument? Not able to express yourself creatively or don't really understand why your favorite songs or styles of music work? Do you want a more hands-on way of teaching with personalized plans just for you?

I returned to saxophone after not playing for years, and at the recommendation of a local player took lessons with Mike. Mike's a great player, but more importantly, he's a great teacher. He's made a study of teaching wind instruments and can really help identify technical issues. Working with Mike on improvising and jazz phrasing and articulation has been really fun and productive for me, and has improved my musicianship in other areas (I'm mostly and upright bassist). I haven't had a sax lesson for a little while, but I recently got a clarinet and I'm back with Mike. The lessons are, as always, rewarding and enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Ava Q.
Ava is enjoying her clarinet instruction!
Heidi
What an AMAZING teacher! Michael always has a positive attitude and connects well with people. He is definitely the highlight of my son’s week (age 10). Michael is talented, knowledgeable and kind. He can connect with all age groups. His studio is also an energetic and delightful place to be. He is a true gem and talented musician. My son says, “He is such a fun guy and great teacher!” He inspires my son.

I teach flutists of every age and level. In the beginning I like to ask each student what their goal is so that we can work towards that, whether it is to become first chair in band, make All-State or youth orchestra, play for Solo & Ensemble, perform with their church, or to just have fun and learn a new skill. In my lessons, I use positive reinforcement and encourage regular practice.

For beginners, I usually recommend doing a 30 minute lesson once per week and then increasing the lesson time and/or frequency as they become a stronger player. I use the Rubank Method for Flute as well as Pares Scales for beginning students. Once they have become more advanced I assign more challenging etude and scale books. When the student has a grasp of the instrument, I present solo repertoire and orchestral excerpts tailored for each level. I try to keep each student's goals, ability, age, and interests in mind when choosing music to keep the lessons engaging and fun!

I really enjoyed my first lesson!! Thanks Kelly
Jessica L.
Ms. Kelly is the best teacher ever! She is so kind, fun, and understanding. I am a busy sophomore in high school with a lot to do, but she always has something fun for me to learn/ play. I like to play more for enjoyment (although she did help me make it to my high school's Symphonic Band) , and I like that Ms. Kelly asks me to my best, but doesn't put pressure on me on things I don't want to do. I'm so happy to have such a nice and talented teacher. She is also super-responsible with sending me lesson notes, as well as keeping up with my schedule. Also, she has a very nice personal relationship to me as a person, not just as a student.
Jessica L.
She is so kind, patient and encouraging and makes me play with my best sound and musicality.

I have taught flute privately for over 8 years. I believe that lessons should be fun and informative. I also believe in hard work and collaboration. I expect students to be prepared for each lesson with all necessary materials and eager to learn new material each week. As I mentioned earlier, I believe lessons should be collaborative meaning that the student and I will decide together what materials are best suited for their goals and needs.

About Carey

I have a Master of Music in Flute Performance Degree with Distinction from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2008 and a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance, Magna Cum Laude, from Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia in 2005. I have studied flute under Christina

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.
