I am not currently taking new students.

My name is Perry and I have been playing flute for over twelve years. I recently graduated from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York studying Flute Performance under the tutelage of Bonita Boyd. I have recently moved to Boston to begin my career freelancing and teaching before eventually pursuing Graduate studies. While at Eastman, I performed eight full solo recitals, demonstrating an eclectic range of repertoire from solo works, to unusual chamber pieces with interesting instrumentations, and concerti with full orchestral accompaniment.

From very early on in my time playing the flute, I pushed myself to compete festival auditions, competitions, and recitals. These experiences give me great insight for teaching younger students wishing to pursue flute competitively or more casually!

Over the course of my playing career, I have experienced a variety of performance injuries involving my hands, arms, and torso. Through these experiences, I have gained experience in injury prevention and recovery relevant to flutists at all ages and levels. This has helped me develop more efficient and healthy approach to my own playing and greatly informed my teaching methods in the process.

My musical experiences make me well suited for teaching students of all ages to achieve individual goals. I loved the teaching I did as a part of the Eastman Community Music School and I love sharing all that I have learned with others! Being a very organized and structured person, I generally propose a steady practice regimen based on both long term goals and short term achievements! I also believe in letting students go at their own pace and constantly adjusting those milestones as required. I believe that the ultimate goal of any teacher is to give the student the means to teach themselves. This philosophy places great emphasis on practicing techniques to make students more self-aware and able to trust themselves in the practice room.
