I have been teaching private flute lessons for about 8 years. I have worked with mostly young beginners and high school students. I have an interactive approach and work from many different books. My students not only learn how to play the flute, but gain a general knowledge of music theory
I worked with the flute section of the Broward High School band in Florida. With group instruction and individual attention, I helped the flutists master their band repertoire as well as improve their flute technique and musicality.
