I've been playing the flute most of my life and studied with a few of the best flute professors in the country. I have been teaching privately for 7 years. My teaching style is very flexible, though I expect dedication and hard work from my students. As my student you will learn not only flute, but you will gain a general knowledge of music theory and harmony, knowledge of musical phrasing and interpretation, as well as proper movement and body alignment similar to Alexander techniques.

Kelley is very knowledgeable and detail-oriented but also kind and has a sense of humor. I feel like I am really growing my flute skills, and Kelley is able to pick up on exactly what I need to work on to keep that growth curve.

Kelley was great. She was personably, helpful and attentive. She corrected my lip, and my hand position. She suggested a music book to improve my fingering. I highly recommend her.

Experience

Private Flute Teacher
Sep 2007 - Present

Flute Instruction

I have been teaching private flute lessons since 2007. I have worked with all ages ranging from young beginners to high school students to retired adults looking to pick up the flute again. 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 and history.

Flute Instructor
Oct 2009 - May 2010

Broward High School

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.
