Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been playing for 12 years, but am young enough to remember (and still feel!) the struggles of practicing and playing the flute. In addition, haven taken over 5 years of Music Theory and Ear Training at music conservatories, I can provide a great way for beginners to learn to read music as well as to hear it.
I will incorporate these aspects into your lessons:
-musicality/being inspired
-how to practice/practice methods

Happy flute playing! :)

I am able to teach Flute at 3 locations:
- West 13th Street (Mannes School of Music)
- Your Home

Hello! Thank you for coming to view my profile! I am a senior at the Mannes School of Music studying Flute Performance with Judith Mendenhall. I graduated from Great Neck South High School and Manhattan School of Music Precollege. I have had a wide age range of flute students who I taught how to read music as well as the flute itself. These students then went on to participate in NYSSMA. I have always had a passion for learning and teaching and hope to instill my passion upon you! Don't hesitate to send me any questions you may have!

Thank you again for taking interest in my profile!

Rebecca is the friendly, passionate and knowledgeable teacher. She is always well-prepared, and suggests great solutions about the problems that I have. I got many invaluable tips from her. I am very sad that I cannot take her lessons anymore due to my moving to other city, but I highly recommend her lessons.

Excellent pedagogy, lesson prepared ahead so knows where she going yet knows how to listen to the student and how to adapt to what she is seeing and hearing, explaining concepts is different fashions and demonstrating them expertly.

Rebecca is a great teacher, she quickly adapted to my level and I was able to make significant progress in the first hour. And she's got a supporting and positive energy that makes the struggle a pleasure!

My 14 y/o daughter has found the perfect flute teacher! Rebecca is a wonderful person and a great coach. Though she is still a student on becoming a future performing flutist, her knowledge is unbelievable. Not only that, she is super fun, smart and never boring! My daughter liked her instantly the first time they had a lesson and she’s always looking forward to the next. What I also like is how super flexible she is with our schedule and that shows how dedicated she is. I believe she will be successful someday and inspire younger kids like my Jillian.

Thanks, Rebecca. My first lesson was a good experience. I went home with some new knowledge on music theory and new exercises. The guidance was easy-going, low pressure, and encouraging. She helped me work out some difficulties and figure out some adjustments to improve my practice. Looking forward to my next and future lessons. Definitely recommend Rebecca as an instructor.

I was really impressed with how patient and attentive Rebecca was with my high school daughter. She seems to have a knack for connecting with people and shows a dedication to really having her get better. She is a talented flute player and her sound is amazing.

There is a noticeable improvement after only a few lessons. I would highly recommend Rebecca.

Rebecca has GREAT PATIENCE. Best teacher I've ever studied with and I can't wait for our next lesson. Just from one lesson, my music theory skills have vastly improved.
