Overview

If you're passionate about music and love the flute I'll be honored to have you as a student! I am available for eager students of all skill levels and ages, focusing on building a strong foundation of fundamental flute skills, paired with expressive artistry. Each student is unique, therefore they deserve a style and pace of learning that is perfectly tailored for them. This is my promise if we decide to work together.

I love staying active and healthy. Some of my favorites are yoga, swimming, and loose leaf green tea. All lessons are approached from a place of health and wellness!

What a fantastic experience. Jared is an exceptional teacher. He introduced my 7 year old to the flute with patience and persistence. She can't wait for her next lesson.

Jared is professional, efficient, patient, and extremely helpful. I felt like a better flutist after being taught by him. I am more motivated and inspired by him to play
the flute, and his musicality will stay with me throughout my flute playing life.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Jared for almost a year. He has worked under my supervision in many capacities. He is an accomplished flutist and musician.
I have heard him perform beautifully as soloist and chamber musician numerous times. He is always very professional and responsible. As a staff/student worker in the Conservatory office he has always been punctual and hard working.
I highly recommend him as musician and as a person.

Jared is a remarkable teacher! He has been teaching me for almost a year now and we have developed a strong trusting relationship. He is very passionate and devoted to his students. One of my favorite things about taking lessons with Jared is that he always varies his teaching methods, making each individual lesson fun and different.
