Hi! My name is Samantha, and I'm currently a junior at Case Western Reserve University, where I'm majoring in flute performance as well as international studies. I've been studying music, specifically flute, for 12 years and counting, and I dabble in piccolo, alto saxophone, clarinet, voice, piano, and pennywhistle. If I can play it, I enjoy it, and if I can’t play it yet I usually enjoy it even more!

I've participated in and helped run a myriad of ensembles, from simple classical quintets to 70-piece marching bands--so whatever type of music my students want to learn, I'm ready to coach them through. I take a holistic approach in my lessons, tailoring them to each student, and incorporating elements of theory, history, and healthy practicing techniques as we go. Whether you are getting ready to audition for an advanced group, or are just starting out, I'm ready to listen and help you reach your goals!

Having explored, studied, and performed a variety of musical genres (Baroque, Classical, jazz, Broadway, modern, etc), I own a large library of repertoire and have something to fit most any student's interests. I'm passionate about bringing the joy of music to my community, and as a classically-trained flutist, I also have a solid grounding in theory and pedagogy--not to mention experience with how auditions and concerts are run. I hope to teach my students a little of all these things, but also about the parts of music that aren't technical: commitment, story-telling, and artistry.
