Dr. Sonett is an accomplished teacher, currently serving on the faculties of the University of Buffalo and The Kanack School of Musical Artistry, as well as maintaining a private studio in NYC. She has given masterclasses and held residencies at Gettysburg College, Kent State University, Alfred University, and the Eastman Community Music School. Previously, Dr. Sonett has taught students at Eastman School of Music, the University of Rochester, and Alfred University.

Committed to nurturing a love of music along with a deep understanding of musical foundations, Dr. Sonett includes elements of music theory and music history in each lesson. Flute lessons with Dr. Sonett build critical thinking skills, encourage creativity, and support development of self-assessment skills. Each lesson includes warm-ups and tone development studies, technical exercises, and repertoire. Students should expect to play, listen, count, sing, and, on occasion, improvise! Dr. Sonett has worked both with elementary school students and advanced adult students, and has also prepared students for regional competitions, concerto competitions, college and graduate school auditions. She works with each student to create individualized practice plans and long-term goals. Students are given the opportunity to perform during studio classes and studio recitals.

New York Flute Club
Jan 2017

Founded in 1920 by eminent flutist Georges Barrère, composer Lamar Stringfield, and a group of their associates, The New York Flute Club is the oldest such organization in the United States.

Barrère's idea in starting the Club was to provide a common meeting ground for the professional, student, and amateur; a place where less experienced players could hear new and unusual music for the flute as well as the classic repertory played by fine artists; a place where all might find performance opportunities helpful to the development of their own talents.
