My flute studio is based around fundamentals and the student's goals. Each flute lesson is tailored to the individual students needs and adjusted as they progress. Whether you are picking up the instrument for the first time, are a student auditioning for all county, or just want to improve your playing, I can help you achieve your ideal musical self!
For beginner students lessons will focus on tone production, breath support, reading skills, rhythm, and technical development to form a strong base for continued development. Intermediate students will continue developing basic technical skills and music theory knowledge. They will begin applying their knowledge to standard repertoire. By focusing on musical context, students will begin to learn the more advanced concepts surrounding interpretation. Advanced students will continue to refine concepts and apply to more advanced repertoire. All students will work on achieving their individual goals whether they are playing for pleasure or working towards auditions.
I am an experienced music teacher and musician. I have been playing for thirteen years and teaching for nine. Lessons are catered to each individual's needs and goals for the lessons. Send me a message to see if I am a good fit for your needs!

About Samantha V.

Hi! I have been making music in some form all of my life. I began playing band/orchestra instruments in sixth grade on clarinet. I quickly added flute to my skillset after that. Flute became my primary instrument about twelve years ago but I do still play both instruments and a few others. I have been playing flute for about thirteen years and I have been teaching for nine of those. I currently hold a Bachelor's of Music Education from Troy University and I hope to one day pursue a master's in flute performance! I have worked with students of many ages and levels. I have also worked with students who have special needs. I work hard to accommodate specific needs and learning goals. I'd love to help you or your child achieve any and all music goals! Send me a message to find out if I would be a good fit for your needs.

Saxophone is my primary instrument but Samantha has really helped me become a better doubler.

Samantha has always been super helpful and encouraging with my struggles with playing the flute. I never had to worry about looking stupid or dumb whenever I took lessons from her. I would highly recommend Samantha for any lessons in the future!
