Overview

Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

Kristin has been great so far. I'm coming back from a LONG absence from piano and she is working hard helping me learn the music I like and still help me learn how to actually ready music!

Finished my first lesson with Kristin. She was really great. She fit the lesson based around the skills I already had and allowed me to build my skills.

Kristin is terrific! I so look forward to working with her and getting back into the flute.
Her instructions and suggestions have already improved my life, and I have plenty of challenges ahead. Lessons with Kristin will be fun and productive.

I've been taking lessons with Kristin for the past 3 weeks now. I used to play as a child, and I'm just getting back into playing now after several years. Finding a teacher that was the right fit was important to me. Kristin is awesome! I felt comfortable right away. She's super patient, knowledgable, and took the time to understand my goals. Highly recommend her :-)
