My name is Stefanie Proulx and I am a flutist in the New York City area, currently pursuing my master's degree at SUNY Purchase. I recently graduated from the University of Delaware with degrees in flute performance and sociology. I have been playing flute for 14 years, and have experience teaching elementary aged students, and amateur adult flutists. I have much experience playing piccolo, as well as alto and bass flutes.
At the University of Delaware, I was principal of both the Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra, and also regularly played with the Chamber Orchestra for the opera theatre. With the UD Wind Ensemble, I had the privilege to travel to Taipei, Taiwan for the 2015 International Concert Band Festival. I was also regularly hired to play for the Master Player's Concert Series.
An avid chamber musician, I was a member of the Nota Bene Wind Quintet for three years, and a flute and harp duo for two years. My passion lies with contemporary and new music, although I love working on pieces of all genres. I also enjoy playing in pit orchestras for musicals and operas, and will often double on clarinet and saxophone.
I am able to teach at my home, at my school, or online -- whatever works best for you! My schedule is highly flexible and subject to change. I am more than willing to work with you to find the most convenient time! Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced player, I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you and help you reach your goals!
During lessons I am able to provide:
-Copies of Etudes and Exercises
Stefanie is a great flutist and a wonderful teacher! She is very kind, patient and explains with a lot of details. Highly recommended!!
I highly recommend Stefanie. She is an excellent flute/piccolo and woodwind player and I learned a lot from her.
When I arrived for my first lesson she already had appropriate material ready for me. Her knowledge of the instrument was such that she could focus in on specific areas of my playing that needed work. She also has broad knowledge of the repertoire and was able to recommend both exercises and solos that would be appropriate for me to work on. She also is pleasant and personable. I enjoyed my lessons with her.
