Victoria came to the Bay Area in 2015 from Atlanta, Georgia where she received her music degree from Georgia State University. She has been playing the flute for 15 years and is knowledgeable in music theory and aural skills. Her teachers have included Allison Gillon and Sarah Ambrose, and has participated in masterclasses with professionals such as: Julien Beaudiment (former principal at LA Philharmonic), Christina Smith (principal at Atlanta Symphony), and Viviana Guzman (international touring artist) to name a few.
She has participated in many ensembles ranging from chamber groups, wind ensembles and orchestras, and performed a solo recital in her senior year at GSU. She also performed with Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps on trumpet in 2011 and 2012. She has taught several high school marching bands since 2011 and currently works with the Homestead High School Marching Band while maintaining a private studio. She also plays with the Foothill Symphonic Winds.
She believes in teaching strong fundamentals. Students will have the opportunity to perform in recitals, audition for local ensembles and at the state level, and often reach the top chairs in their school bands. Lessons are tailored to fit each student's specific needs and goals. All levels of experience are accepted; whether you are just beginning, an intermediate player, prepping for an audition, or picking it back up after a long break.
In her free time Victoria enjoys traveling, camping, hiking, reading, dance, and gymnastics.
Victoria is an excellent teacher, attuned to me/her student needs and explain the instructions in different understandable ways!
The lessons are for my 9 year old granddaughter. She was very excited to meet Victoria and thoroughly enjoyed her first lesson. We are looking forward to my granddaughter learning to enjoy playing the flute. I think we chose well when we engaged Victoria.
Victoria is always punctual and my daughter enjoyed working with her first private instructor. This experience was purely for the summer, so we are taking a break, but would recommend Ms Victoria to other new flutists.
Working with Victoria is a joy. She is flexible and understanding regarding schedule updates, my daughter enjoys her flute lessons, and I can clearly hear the results. My daughter played well when Victoria started to teach her, but with her instructions she has stepped up to the next level and her tone has improved a light year.+ Read More
My daughter needed lessons before a college audition. Victoria helped her with er site reading and tone & technique for 2 months before her audition. My daughter got a scholarship and into the group she wanted because of Victoria's help! She was flexible with my daughter's crazy schedule and helped her feel confident in her abilities.
