Hi, my name is Brittney and I teach private in-home flute lessons in the Washington, D.C. area. I've received my bachelor's and master's degrees in Music Education from Howard University and currently teach college level intro to music and woodwinds methods courses (also at Howard University). I've been playing the flute for 14 years and am an active freelance artist in the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
I have taken flute lessons from Ms. Allen for the past six (6) years. When I first met her, I
was unsure about my playing and not very confident in my ability to perform in public. After working with Ms. Allen both my tone and my technique have each developed tremendously. I am now much, much more comfortable presenting my music in public. In fact, now, the more people present, the better I like it! Working with Ms. Allen completely transformed, not only my playing, but also my outlook on music
and on life. Today, I am a much more positive, optimistic person because of the world of music I am being introduced to through studying flute with Ms. Allen. Her knowledge of other music subjects (theory and history) is encyclopedic. I am so happy that she made room for me in her studio. Simply said, I am looking forward to performing music as always being an important part of my life because of my time with Ms. Brittney Allen. She is the best teacher I have ever had!
