I teach flute students at all levels. I use tuners and metronomes extensively to train students to play in tune and in time. I like for students to play duets. It is imperative for students who play wind instruments to learn to interact musically with other wind players.

About John C.

I have over thirty years of experience playing and teaching clarinet saxophone and flute. I work with digital tuners and metronomes every day to assure that students learn to play in tune and in time. I adjust and maintain all my instruments and can detect problems with instruments immediately. If a student needs to upgrade their equipment I can effectively advise them as to their next move.

John has huge knowledge about music and about jazz in particular,. He's a great player, and he knows how to break down skills and explain them in a way that's accessible. He's tailored lessons to my needs and level. I've made enormous progress since starting to study with him.
