I have taught flute to children and adults for about 20 years. During that time, I have continued to develop as a flutist by taking my own lessons with professional symphony players and by playing principal flute in a community orchestra. I strongly believe in positive reinforcement and applauding my students as they make strides. You may find my profile on Linked in, and Elizabeth Pickens, flute instructor on Facebook. I also have a website fluteteacher.net which I encourage you to visit.Show More

English, Music from James Madison Univeristy
A great teacher for the starting or intermediate flute student. Lessons are held in her house. Many opportunities are provided for playing competitively or concerts around Scottsdale.
As an adult student I appreciate Elizabeth's attention to so much more than just the notes on a page. She is a terrific encourager, and an especially good problem solver for people like me who have a stream of questions about the instrument, its place in music and history, and music theory. I recommend her for students who are beginning as youngsters and for others who choose to learn to play the flute at any stage in life because she believes that music enhances life.Show More
- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I have taught flute lessons for 20 years. My students study either in my studio at my home(which is decorated in a fun pink Victorian style) or online. Every year we have mini recitals at my home where students showcase works in progress and we have a party. Then at the end of the year, we have a fun formal recital at a church and everyone gets dressed up and shows off a piece. My students often hold first chairs at their schools and do well on chair auditions.
