1990

I encourage my students to set goals for themselves, to take risks, to make mistakes, and to learn by imitating the greats via listening assignments. I make frequent use of duets during lessons—they're fun, and improve sight-reading, intonation, ensemble skills and sensitivity to musical phrasing. Last (but not least) I play close attention to the fundamentals of tone production, breathing, vibrato, tonguing and correct positioning. These elements form the foundation for musical artistry and make playing the flute a joy — which is my personal goal for every student I teach.
