Private Flute Teacher

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.

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.

Kelley is a wonderful teacher, that has helped my 8 year old daughter Ellen to learn to play her first notes on the flute. Ellen really enjoys her lessons with Kelley.

Kelly is knowledgeable and patient with me and that is just the way I need to be taught. She is very helpful and has shown me things no other instructor has. I like her method and plan to continue with her.
