I am a graduate from McGill University, where I received my Master of Music in Flute Performance. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance from Northwestern University. I live in Long Beach, CA and can teach any level of flute/piccolo students.
I have been teaching privately since 2008. I love to teach both students who are planning on pursuing music and taking auditions as well as students who are learning an instrument just for fun! I adjust my expectations of students accordingly. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons if they wish.
I am an easy-going teacher, but I do expect my students to practice and come prepared to every lesson! If students are prepared, lessons are much more fun for everyone :)
I have had experience teaching a variety of skill levels from elementary students who have picked up the flute and started reading music for the first time to advanced high school students to beginner adults.
