Lesson Details

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am always most concerned with meeting you where you currently are as a musician and building you up from there. So whether you are an out right just starting out beginner, a budding prospect that wants to continue to grow into a knockout musician, to a more advanced individual that wants to achieve their greatest potential and kill it on your next audition, solo or even recital. Each person has their own distinctly unique reasons for learning to play an instrument or how to sing and I like to work with the individual at that base level to meet your needs. For example if your only goal is to be able to pull out your instrument and play for church on Sundays I can help you get there. Or if you are someone who just wants to be able to say I learned how to play I can also help you. No matter what your individual goals and purposes are I can help you make it happen!

Hello there! My name is Ariel. I graduated from the University of Jamestown with a Bachelors in Music Education and Flute performance. I am primarily a flute family specialist: piccolo, flute, Alto and Bass flute are all in my wheelhouse. Through my years of schooling I have learned many other instruments and also am very skilled in voice, so I am qualified to teach most categories. I taught in the North Dakota Public School system in very small school districts for several years. My greatest strength while teaching was working one on one with each individual to get my students to a much higher level of playing and musicianship. I truly believe meeting each individual where they currently are and going from there is the best policy for growing as musician.

I also believe that in order to be the best teacher I can be I must continue to grow as a musician as well. So, I too continue to work to improve my skills, and play with great ensembles to keep my skills sharp and ever growing. At the moment I play in 4 different community ensembles around the state of North Dakota and also participate annually in IMC's Adult Community Music Camp. Typically you will find me playing the flute and piccolo, but occasionally I pick up the Tenor Sax to play in Jazz combo, and when the season is right you will find me lugging around my Euphonium to play all of the Regional Tuba Christmas Events in North Dakota annually and from time to time I play in brass choirs. I truly believe the act of making music with an ensemble is a major key to success and fulfillment on your journey as a musician.
