Overview

*** Specialties ***
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.

My son loves his harp lessons. He is only 4, but she has made playing harp such a joy for him that he practices every day. We are very lucky to have found her.

I have known Pam Irwin for more than 35 years. She is an exceptional musician with the highest of professional standards. She has earned a Masters Degree in flute and I was honored to have her play at my wedding. Pam is also proficient in harp and piano and has been giving lessons for many years. Anyone seeking lessons in flute, harp or piano would greatly benefit from Pam's expertise and experience.

Pam Irwin is an outstanding musician and music teacher. She has a Master's Degree in Flute and plays beautifully. Her harp performances are enjoyed by many every week, and she is a talented teacher of harp, piano, fife, as well as flute. I recommend her to anyone considering taking lessons in any of these areas.

As a parent of a 14 year old flutist, I was apprehensive in doing online flute lessons initially but am glad that I did. We chose Pam for our on line lesson teacher based on her high level of experience. My daughter needed help with her audition music and Pam was able to work with her to get her ready with our tight deadline that we had. Pam even took it upon herself to look into all the material that was needed for her audition and scanned the missing docs that I overlooked. She is always thinking ahead and preparing material for the next lesson. I would highly recommend Pam for a private lesson teacher, I am glad we found her!
