I love music more than anything else; playing, teaching, composing are all my life passions. My styles vary from Irish flute to classical, and sometimes bagpipes on the side!

I'm from the Washington state, but currently studying music in Montréal, Québec. I've also lived and played music in Germany and Norway, both of which have shaped my personal taste in music! And as a teacher, I love to pass down these ideas and passions of mine to my students!

I taught private lessons to students of all ages and backgrounds in my school system. The majority were in middle school (~13 years old). It was amazing to see young peoples' eyes light up when learning a new joy in life, music is something that everyone should enjoy!

I had forgotten how to play the flute when I started lessons. After a few lessons my fingers started to remember all their old habits! Super patient, definitely recommend!

Always wanted to learn some Irish music, and Guthrie helped me reach my goal of playing a jig within a couple weeks! Super nice guy, can't recommend him enough!

Guthrie taught me the flute about a year ago, and was a great experience! He was patient, and really wanted me to experiment with different styles to see what I liked best. I learned a lot and found a great new hobby!
