Lesson Details

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I always begin lessons with some form of warm up to focus on beauty in tone and then I follow that with exercises that build technique. I am happy to work with students with whatever method book they are currently using but I am also happy to suggest method books and literature that I feel could further guide their growth. My lessons are very student-centered in that I see what the student's goals are and work from there. I adjust my lessons based on how the student is performing that day. I am happy to teach students of any age and of any ability level!

Teaching since:
2012

I'm a musician, a music educator, and music researcher. I enjoy teaching and sharing my passion for music with students of all ages. I currently teach at the Urban College of Boston as an adjunct professor and I substitute teach for Newton Public Schools. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Furman University in Greenville, SC and received my Master of Music in Music Education from Boston University in Boston, MA. I'm a certified music educator in the state of South Carolina and Massachusetts. I perform regularly on the flute and the violin but have had experience learning and playing other instruments such as viola, cello, bass, trumpet, trombone, and piano. In my free time, I enjoy playing the tin whistle at local Irish sessions in the Boston area. I have taught private lessons on the flute and the violin for the last five years and am starting to offer tin whistle lessons to students interested in learning to pick up Irish music. As a music educator, I fulfilled my student teaching at the middle school and high school level in Pickens, South Carolina. My goal as an educator is making sure that my students succeed and reach their goals.

Violin · In studio

This is my first time learning to play an instrument, and Kendall has been nothing short of amazing. I feel like I am progressing with each lesson, and I enjoy working on my homework between lessons. I absolutely recommend Kendall if you want to learn violin as an adult beginner, and I'm sure she is equally good with younger students and more experienced ones.
