Joyce has been teaching private lessons in both flute and piano since 1978 and is currently available to teach lessons at her studio. Joyce has helped students be accepted in district honor bands; get certifications through The Royal Conservatory of Music Program; move up in chair placement tests and achieve higher grades in math and science.
Joyce received her B.A. Degree from Towson University in Baltimore, Md. She then began her Masters Degree at Peabody Conservatory, an affiliate of John's Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. As an "Elementary and Intermediate Specialist " with the RCM Program in both flute and piano, Joyce looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Joyce's teaching style is as strict as the student wants, along with fun and interesting stories when appropriate.
My in-home studio is a complete 2 room office housing a room each for piano, and one for flute and written work. Learning the "Whole Language" of music is highly encouraged.
Based upon my students evaluations, they have frequently been awarded with highest grades in their region, state and even nationally.
