As a student myself I understand that school and other activities can limit practice time. My goal is to develop a students technique and tone. Students will learn how to be detail-oriented to be efficient in their practice time and be able to overcome their weaknesses in playing. I will incorporate music theory skills and ear training knowledge to make them an better musician overall. Incorporating these items will make them a better musician overall.
My name is Lionel Avila and I am an aspiring flute teacher and performer. I have been playing the flute since the 6th grade and I could not have been any happier.
