Lesson Details

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Hello, my name is Lesia and I would be happy to be your teacher.
I moved to the US from the Ukraine 5 years ago, where I graduated from the Kharkov State University of Arts with Bachelor degree in music arts and was qualified as orchestra and ensemble player and teacher of flute and ensemble. I have more than 10 years of teaching experience. I taught flute and ensemble playing, provided music activity for children from 4 years old and up. My students participated in concerts and competitions. I also had an experience working in, the Orchestra of the Dnipropetrovsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, Ukraine, where I had a role of the second flute and piccolo. While I was working in the theater, I played in such performances as "Swan Lake", "Sleeping Beauty", "The Nutcracker" by P. Tchaikovsky, "The Wedding of Figaro" by V.А. Mozart .
My specialty is a classic, but I am familiar with different styles of music and even played in a reggae band when I was at university and as a teacher, I have always focused on the student's personality. I can work with beginner and intermediate students In a group or private and provide a friendly and individual approach to each student In developing flute playing skills: tone, posture, techniques, music theory and basic improvisation skills.

My 7 year-old son began learning recorder with Leasia as a complete beginner. He is taking lessons with Lesia as a music teacher for the past 9 months. She is patient and very friendly. Lesia taught him many things so far, such as how to read notes, all the fundamental techniques of recorder playing including correct posture, hand position, fingering and breathing. Also, my son learned how to play simple classic melodies like "Mary had a little lamb”, “Old Old McDonald had a farm”, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and etc. We are gradually transitioning from recorder to flute now. My son looks forward to Lesia’s lessons, and is enjoying music. I recommend Lesia to everyone and anyone interested in learning to play recorder and flute.

Lesia is a great flute teacher! Since my daughter started taking lessons from Lesia twise a week she started making a lot more progress; part of success is Lesia’s advanced teaching skills and another part is motivation to learn and practice a lot more that my daughter got when learning from Lesia how to become a great flute player
