Lesson Details

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
While currently earning a Master's degree at Northwestern University, I have over 13 years of performance experience on the flute as well as experience teaching students of all ages. It is my goal to give each and every one of my students the appreciation, love, and understanding of the flute. I will tailor the curriculum to match the player's specific learning needs. While other resources such as books and recordings are helpful, a private teacher is able to give students primary attention to flute foundations such as posture, hand position, breathing, tone, and scales that will be transferable to repertoire and etudes. By quickly identifying problems, and teaching the appropriate ways to fix them, my students discover easier and more enjoyable music making.

Teaching since:
2013

As a passionate advocate for the arts, I have been playing the flute for over 13 years. Originally from Geneva, Illinois, I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Northwestern University Bienen School of Music under the direction of Professor John Thorne. In May 2017, I earned a Bachelor of Music Performance from The Ohio State University studying with Katherine Borst Jones. I have participated in many competitions, festivals, and performance groups around the country such as Northwestern University's Symphonic Wind Ensemble, The Ohio State University's Symphony Orchestra, Westerville Symphony Orchestra, Opera Project Columbus, the American Wind Symphony Orchestra, and Wheaton Municipal Band among others. While being an active performer, I absolutely love teaching as well! Teaching students of all ages, I believe that nurturing a love for music is beneficial to personal growth.

Flute · In studio

Ann is a wonderful instructor! Her passion for music is evident in every encounter. She shared her enthusiasm for flute and encouraged my daughter in creative ways. An amazing role model. Flexible scheduling, clear and quick communication.
