Hi! I’m Nadia. I’m an experienced teacher, currently offering lessons in classical flute performance, Italian language and Alexander Technique/posture coaching. I truly love helping clients improve their skills, learn new things and reach their goals, whether it’s playing the flute in a musical, skillful way, speaking and understanding the beautiful language of Italian or changing their posture to relieve pain and enhance performance in daily life or a skilled activity. I enjoy connecting with you! If you have a question about any of the subjects I teach or my teaching, please feel free to use the “Ask a Question” feature and I’ll respond as soon as possible. A NOTE ABOUT MY AVAILABILITY: If you don’t see the time/day you’re looking for, please send me a message and/or sign up for lessons and we can find a time that works. For more information about my experience and teaching in each subject, please click on the subject you are interested in to read more.

Nadia is a fine instructor. Take it from me who's been coached in many sports - tennis, skiing , riding, swimming. AM is a sport, too, in that the student has to do most of the work. Nadia tells us what to do to improve, but it's up to us to practice.
In just one lesson, my daughter learned so much and gained the confidence to work through a difficult piece of music!
First lesson in, and I already feel like the goals for myself are more than attainable under the tutelage of Nadia. I learned so much in my first thirty minutes. I can't wait to go back.
