Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am currently pursuing a Master's in Flute Performance at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music under the tutelage of Kathryn Lukas. I have a very gentle and positive demeanor, and I am skilled at assessing the needs of my students and helping them to create richer music and love the process. I have pedagogy training from Prof. Lukas who herself has been a successful educator for several decades. I have been playing flute for over 16 years and have much experience in core technique development, major repertoire, understanding and communicating musical concepts, and performing in different modes (i.e. solo, ensemble, chamber, etc.).

Teaching since:

Hello, my name is Severin. I am a master's student in flute performance at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington, IN. I am originally from Chicago, IL, where I was able to have a very rich experience of the arts growing up. I am often told that I have a very gentle, calm, and positive demeanor, and I am generally able to communicate well with people of all ages.
I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Flute Performance from Indiana University, where I studied with Kathryn Lukas, with whom I am also currently studying for my master's. I have experience with a wide variety of repertoire, including Romantic, Baroque, Classical, Contemporary, and Popular. In my own playing, I focus more than anything else on making music for the sheer joy, love, and thrill of it.
I am very excited to get to know you, future student!
