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!
