Teaching since:

I'm a Juilliard trained (BM, MM) flutist, educator and entrepreneur. Currently I perform over 100 concerts a year nationally as a recitalist in schools and performing arts centers and with The Green Golly Project. I am dedicated to bringing classical music and music theater to children and adults through my interdisciplinary performances.
In addition I have over 20 years of experience teaching at all levels with considerable results, and have taught in my home studio and at various universities.
I love the process of teaching and watching students have that learning break through where they connect to the music and the sounds that they are making. That moment when they know that they will be able to play the flute!!

Barbara is a very sensitive and amazingly supportive teacher. She has helped me foster my love for the flute and for music. I have been studying with her for a long time and intend to continue for many years. It has been a life changing experience. I highly recommend her lessons.
