Teaching since:
September 2010

I'm a flute/piccolo teacher with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education and Flute Performance and a Master of Music in Flute Performance.

I love teaching students of all levels and ages. During our lessons we will focus on fundamentals (scales, tone, etc.), etudes, standard repertoire, and more. My goal is to teach you the tools you need to successfully master the instrument and the music in front of you. Most importantly I want you to have fun! Learning a musical instrument can be a fulfilling part of your life.

Anne did a great job with our daughter's flute lesson. My daughter is very excited to have her as her teacher. I would highly recommend Anne as an instructor.

Anne Friend is a wonderful teacher and performer, highly qualified and well versed in flute fundamentals. As her undergraduate teacher, I have known Anne for over 6 years and think the world of her! She is hard-working, dependable, patient, and tailors lessons to meet the needs of every individual student. I highly recommend Anne as a private flute instructor.
