Lesson Details

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Music lessons should be fun, encouraging and full of music that you love. They are an opportunity to learn something new, show your improvement, and receive correction, encouragement and praise. Students and instructors should play together frequently throughout and the time should be balanced with theory, technique and exercises, sight-reading, and performance and seasoned with introductions to a variety of music and styles. I like to encourage students to play because they love to play and to find the music that is an integral part of their soul, then to share that with others through performance. What do you want to do with or gain from your music? We will work toward your goals.

Music is a huge part of my life and I love sharing that with others. Helping and seeing others discover and develop their talents and find joy in music is something I love.

I come from a musical family and have been singing and playing the piano since before I can remember. Flute (and piccolo) lessons began for me in the 7th grade and I participated in both concert and marching bands from there though college. Now I take regular opportunities to play with various groups of all sizes.

I have taught music (theory, flute, piano and vocal) to students of varying ages and backgrounds both individually and in groups. Working as the woodwind and marching assistant at my alma mater was a thrill and I enjoied seeing and helping students push themselves and reap the rewards of both talent and recognition for their efforts and accomplishments.

While participating in the Prince William Community Band, I had the opportunity to learn to play some percussion instruments and played in that section for a couple years. I have been a music director for several years and enjoy arranging music. It is never to late to start learning if you have the desire and persistence.

Singing · In home

Such an amazing experience working with Jennifer. If you are just starting out singing and are in need of learning the basics and more about where you are at in your voice you will be very happy. She is encouraging, fun, and will help you to find where you still need to practice. She will help you to break it down and to get the concepts down. She is also flexible, if you happen to run into a problem like I did with illness. If you are willing to put in the practice, you will find your time with her enjoyable and extremely valuable. I will be working with Jennifer again in the future...

She was very kind, very patient, and very good at instructing. For two people who have never learned anything about the flute, my child and myself feel comfortable and confident in practicing what we’ve learned! Often for first lessons when setting out to practice you can’t remember what to do. She was amazing!
