Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! My name is Emily, and I teach students of all ages and levels. For the past 6 years, I have strived to challenge my students to do their best, but at the same time, made sure that they are having fun while learning to playing the flute. My main goal is that my students are enjoying the music they play and learn to share that joy with others. I can help improve tone quality, technique, breathing, and musical expression. I also have a lot of experience playing piccolo, and can teach piccolo technique as well. I'm looking forward to working with you!

Flute · In studio

Emily Nazario was a great teacher and flute professional. She is well qualified and taught me what I needed to know about the flute. She is also great to get along with and encourages as well as teaches. My tone quality, my technique, and overall playing improved immensely when I was under her teaching. Overall, I would highly recommend her for all students. Especially if you want to pursue flute to the next level and audition for college.
