About Sarah C.

Hi there! I am excited to offer top-tier online flute lessons to help you improve your flute playing skills and meet your musical goals!

During these challenging times when making music in person is nearly impossible, online music lessons are more important than ever. That's why I'm here to offer my services from the comfort of your own home. I have extensive experience teaching online and can say that there are actually some things about online lessons that are even better than in person lessons. When it comes to sharing and organizing information, these days we are much more equipped to learning with the help of online tools. I will share with you my techniques for making the most of your practice time, improving your sound in 10 minutes a day, and most of all, making playing the flute a joyful and rewarding experience.

You might be wondering why my rates are higher than most. This is because 1) I have invested my entire life to being one of the best flute teachers and performers in my field, 2) I have the credentials to prove it, 3) I only offer 1-hour lessons (this is actually for your benefit as a learner).

I have had the privilege of studying music at a deep level with some of the most world-renown flutists. My doctoral research consisted of ground-breaking work on the topic of flute masterclasses, making me a leading expert with unique perspectives on topics specific to flute teaching.

These investments have certainly paid off. In one New York Times article in the Classical Music section, I was praised for combining “thoughtful musicality with virtuosity in her alternately energetic and delicate account of a flute line laden with light multiphonics and unusual timbres.” Additionally, for the last ten years, I have been playing with The Parhelion Trio, a dynamic and highly regarded ensemble that has performed on stages around the world including Carnegie Hall, Harpa Concert Hall (Iceland), The Royal Danish Academy of Music, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and many more.

As a teacher, I have given numerous workshops for the New York Philharmonic's world-famous education program, Very Young Composers. I have also been invited to give presentations at Adelphi University, California State University Long Beach, Little Orchestra Society, and St. Joseph's College..

I love teaching private lessons! While I have had many high-achieving students over the years, my real purpose is to work with you on your personal goals and to meet you "where you are." Teaching is an art form and it takes tremendous flexibility and creativity to make lessons work for everyone. This is what I love to do! I'm here to bring positivity and energy into your life. Lessons are not about the teacher's agenda, but about mentorship and musical companionship. This could mean working through the internal struggles of practicing and finding deeper meaning through music. This also means that I will take the time to play duets with you by recording the other flute part so that you can play along with it. I am here for you!
