Private flute lesson (possible to have classes in pairs with a sibling or a friend who is in the same level) for beginning or intermediate students by a professionally trained flutist who has over 16 years of flute playing experience. I'm a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music, one of the best contemporary music schools in the world. For beginners, we will start by getting to know your flute, practice breathing control, and have fun with music. For intermediate students, we will focus more on different flute techniques, sound quality, music theory, and performing.
As a music therapist, I specialize in teaching music to students with special needs. Let's use music to address your personal goals and have fun!

About Paris W.

Hi there, my name is Paris. I recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a dual degree in Music Therapy and Songwriting, while focusing on flute performances as well. I also play piano, guitar, ukelele, percussion and I'm a singer-songwriter. I've worked with kids through music therapy services, and mentor programs, and I'm very patient with kids of all ages.

I moved to the U.S. from China when I was 16. Being bilingual really helped me understand the beauty of different cultures and languages. I like to bridge the gap in all of my teaching experiences and my classes are open to anyone regardless of where you're from.

I've been playing flute for 16 years, piano for 5 years, and have tutored and taught students in a wide age range. In the past, I've played flute in a variety of genres including classical, contemporary, Latin, jazz, and musical, in symphonic wind ensembles, symphony orchestras, musical theater pit, and recording sessions. I also have been using piano and guitar to write songs and compose for school and for personal projects. Music has always been a crucial element of my life, so let's get on to this musical journey together!

Excellent! She worked with my daughter on tonguing techniques and using the metronome. She helped her learn new skills.
