Mrs.Samantha is the best flute teacher I've ever had. Everything she tells me to do make sense, and helps me improve on my flute. She's also one of the hilarious teacher i know and who makes you want to practice! I love her! 😊

Samantha has helped me so much with my sound and I learn so much just by listening to her play and playing duets with her. She gives clear instructions and makes flute lessons really enjoyable.

Samantha is an excellent teacher. When I started, I had trouble making any sound on the flute but she taught me embouchure and a bunch of fingerings. It's too bad I moved away, or I would still be taking lessons with her!
