Hello! I will be starting my Masters at NYU in September, where I will be studying flute performance. While completing my degree, I will also be teaching private lessons to non-music majors who are attending NYU. I recently graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music this past May, where I received a Bachelors Degree in Music Performance with a minor in art history. While at IU, I studied under Kathryn Lukas and participated in various ensembles and concerts.
I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, where I studied under Christina Smith, the principal flutist of the Atlanta Symphony, and I also participated in a numerous amount of masterclasses and performances with many different flutists. I have been playing the flute for 16 years, and I have been playing the piano for 18 years. I also play the piccolo, alto flute, bass flute, clarinet, and the guitar.
I have been teaching the flute for over 8 years. I have taught students of all ages and levels. I also have worked with high school students in assisting with flute sectionals through the band program.
I am experienced with a large variety of styles, and I am open to exploring different types of music.
My goal is to give students the ability and resources to grow to become an overall musician. I am very encouraging and enthusiastic in my teaching.
Please contact me with any questions :)
Flute lessons for students of all ages and levels
Founded in 1920 by eminent flutist Georges Barrère, composer Lamar Stringfield, and a group of their associates, The New York Flute Club is the oldest such organization in the United States.
Barrère's idea in starting the Club was to provide a common meeting ground for the professional, student, and amateur; a place where less experienced players could hear new and unusual music for the flute as well as the classic repertory played by fine artists; a place where all might find performance opportunities helpful to the development of their own talents.
The Atlanta Flute Club began in 1997 with a wonderful group of people who wanted to form an organization to promote the flute, to share knowledge, and to encourage each other to be better musicians.
The National Flute Association, founded in 1972, is the largest flute organization in the world. Approximately 5,000 members from more than 50 countries join together in person, online, at conventions, informally and in forums, through publications and classrooms, in performance, in friendship and collegiality. Guided by its goals to encourage a higher standard of artistic excellence for the flute, its performers, and its literature, members include leading soloists, orchestral players, jazz and world music performers, teachers, adult amateurs, and students of all ages.+ Read More
I was very skeptical at first about doing online lessons, but I'm very pleased with how the lesson went. Sarah really took the time to listen, and she is very patient. She helped me so much even though I am a beginner, and she showed me how to get better on my own as well.+ Read More
Sarah helped me so much in getting a good chair in my high school band audition. I was worried about not knowing all the notes in the scales but she told me how to practice them and I made a high chair in the band I wanted to be in. Thank u Sarah!!!!
