I use the Suzuki method for younger flute students and a combination of Blocki Flute Method and Rubank for students who are in fifth grade and above. I work with students to set specific goals for their progress and encourage them to enter solo and ensemble, all county and all-state competitions and I prepare them for those competitions if they want to enter them. I also work with adults and teenagers. I teach piano up to the intermediate level using the Faber books.
I teach harp classes at two elementary, two middle schools and one high school. We have approximately 50 students countywide enrolled in harp. Two of the county harp students have received full tuition college scholarships with harp being at least one of the reasons they got the scholarship.
I play flute and harp for weekly services at Seminole Presbyterian Church. I also invite students to play for prelude at the church as a performing opportunity - they are not required to stay for the service unless they choose to do so.
I have been a freelance harpist and flutist, performing for weddings and special occasions for 15+ years. This summer I will be partnering with a teacher friend of mine to form Dolce Flute and Harp which will continue to offer music for weddings and special events,.
I teach beginning, intermediate and advanced levels on flute. I also work on the staff of a local church playing flute for weekly services. I use the Suzuki method for all levels and the Blocki Flute Method and Rubank Method for all students. I encourage students to participate in band and other musical groups and their music with that group is part of my lessons.
I taught flute, piano and harp for Tampa Music Co. (No longer in existence).
