I like giving my flute students a very well-rounded education. In terms of playing the flute, I strive to help my students improve their note-reading ability, their technical skill, their timing, and their musicality. Often in lessons, I teach students how to play scales, technical exercises, solo works (of various musical genres).
Also, for students that participate in ensembles such as band or orchestra, I am more than happy to help them with their ensemble music.
Having taught piano and flute lessons for over 12 years in the North Shore. I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages (3 - adult), both beginner and advanced. I enjoy teaching students the "classical music" repertoire. I also strive to give my students a solid foundation in music theory and history in order for them to truly understand and appreciate the roots and structure of the music. In addition, I want my students to really love playing music and so I strongly encourage my students to also learn to play music outside of the classical repertoire. I believe balance is key, so I generally teach students to play classical music as well as music from other genres (such as film music, pop music, video game music, holiday music etc). *** Lesson Details *** Each ...
I have been teaching individual and group lessons for 12+ years. Many of my students have won trophies at the Granquist music competition and also play in local youth orchestras. My own youth string ensemble plays publicly at many popular local venues several times a year. I enjoy exposing my students to the finer points of being a professional musician such as the camaraderie, team work, creativity (creating harmonies, tailoring arrangements to fit student’s level) and of course, stage presence. I am very proud of my students. It is so gratifying to see their confidence build with each new skill they master. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching is to combine fundamentals with “adventure.” I encourage students to experiment with their instrument and have quite a few budding ...

All of my students receive a strong understanding of the fundamentals (sound, rhythm, technique, phrasing) as well how music works (theory). I enjoy students at all levels, the beginners for the eager spirit, intermediate for their desire to improve and advanced for the life long quest of expression. All of these require the same concepts, just at different levels of sophistication. My many years of teaching and performing have created a strong vocabulary to impact all levels of students
I am a professional performer and teacher. I have been working in the Chicago area since 1986 and enjoy a nice balance between teaching and performing. I am a member of the Illinois Philharmonic, and have been a substitute in most of the other orchestras in the area. For 5 years I was the principal substitute for the St Louis Symphony and I currently travel from time to time to play in orchestras out of state and sometimes out of the country. I love teaching, passing on the experiences I have had over the years. Many of my students do very well at IMEA and other competitions. I try to instill a love of music which has evolved into many students participating in the music programs at their college, even if they are not music majors. Students have also gone on to professional careers ...
