What are your dreams and goals for playing flute? Whether playing flute with your school band, accompanying your friends, or just playing for your own enjoyment, I am prepared to make your music dreams a reality! Our Flute Belt system, similar to Karate belts, provides incentive for moving ahead. Lessons cover solo work from the classical repertoire and student choices, and group playing, which is rewarding and fun. Any age and skill level is welcome -- we progress from where you are to where you want to be.

Please check out my website, deerlandfluteandpiano.com, and my Facebook page, Deerland Flute and Piano. I would love to connect with you!
