About Severin D.

Hello! My name is Severin and I'm very excited to work with you. I am often told that I have a very gentle, calm, and positive demeanor, and I love leading lessons with fun and flexibility.
Regarding my background as a musician, I have a Master of Music degree in Flute Performance from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where I studied with Kathryn Lukas. I have experience performing a wide variety of repertoire, including band, orchestra, chamber, and solo; as well as in the subgenres/eras of Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Contemporary, and Popular. In both my playing and teaching, I emphasize the joy and fulfillment that comes from creating beautiful art. In addition to flute and classical music, I have composed and produced my own original electronic music for several years.
Regarding Japanese, I am proficient up to the advanced-beginner level after having studied for two years in college using the Genki textbooks as well as doing self-study beyond this point. As such, I am very comfortable tutoring beginning Japanese.
I greatly look forward to meeting you!
