Love playing the flute? Learn even more from a teacher with 10+ years experience.
Learning to play the flute? It's never to early or too late! Let me help you, I've been playing the flute for over 15 years and have more than 10 years of teaching experience. I teach students from their first lesson, to advanced college auditions, and adult amateur players. Many of my students just play for fun. But I have also taught students who have gone on to top music colleges such as Eastman School of Music, my students have won seats in PMEA All-State Band & Orchestra competitions, and others have won music scholarships. My favorite part of teaching is the joy it brings to my students! Please reach out and we can work together to achieve your musical goals.
About Faith W.

I have performed throughout Europe and North America as an orchestral and solo musician, and my favorite part of touring is meeting people from different places and trying new foods! I currently hold a long-term piccolo/3rd flute substitute position with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra. My recent engagements include working as principal flute with Lyric Opera Ireland as well as SinfoNua Orchestra. I’m a founding member of the Pento Wind Quintet having played at the Kaleidoscope Chamber Festival and Blackwater Valley Festival. I received my Masters of Music in Flute Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music studying flute with William Dowdall, former principal flute of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, and piccolo with Patricia Morris, former principal piccolo of the BBC Symphony. I graduated with honors from Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance where I simultaneously earned a Bachelor of Music in Music History and a Bachelor of Music in flute performance studying under Loren Lind of the Philadelphia Orchestra. During the Covid-19 pandemic I initiated my own Virtual Chamber Concert Series in order to share music with others during difficult times. My online series is called, "Flute with Faith & Friends,” and has involved select guest performing artists.

Faith is a great teacher, with a knack for pointing out problems and then offering solutions, making me a better player. I have taken a few lessons on flute and piccolo with her. She's a wonderful mentor and I highly recommend her.

Faith is an amazing flute instructor! We have done both in-person and online lessons with her. She is organized, efficient, knowledgeable, flexible and great to work with. My daughter has grown tremendously in her playing since working with Faith, and she enjoys her lessons!

As an adult amateur player, I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Faith. I come away from each one feeling that I've improved, however incrementally, thanks to her ability to zero in on the problem and provide clear direction. Thanks to her warm, relaxed, and supportive manner, and shared joy in the music, I'm able to focus on it with little of the performance anxiety that has bothered me in the past.
