Learning the flute is a great way to explore your creativity. Flute is the one wind instrument with amazing versatility and expression. It is as comfortable in an orchestra as a jazz band.
Do you or a child you know want to learn how to play flute, recorder, baroque flute, or even piccolo? I love to teach and can help you on your or your child's path to further your music education.
I began playing the flute when I was 10 and started teaching while I was still a high school student. I started playing flute professionally as a teenager and now I have over 30 years of experience in teaching and performing.
I teach students of all ages. I specialize in personalized, tailored instruction with a strong commitment to making the process of learning music simple and straightforward. Each student has a unique learning style and I work with each student within their style. Your lessons are designed for YOU, whether beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Your lesson pace, curriculum, and progress are based on your strengths and learning style.
I am by vocation a musician specializing in performing and teaching flute. I have taught flute and played professionally in the greater Sacramento area, as well as in SLC, Utah and Reno, NV.
