I have been performing and teaching lessons as my full time career for over 10 years. I am new to Portland, and I'm very excited to establish my teaching studio here.

I teach ages 7 through adult, beginners through advanced, and enjoy customizing each student's lessons according to their own goals. I often include different genres and styles of music, mindfulness, meditation, and body awareness practices, ear training, improvisation, and music theory.

Emily has served as principal flutist of the Union Symphony in Charlotte, NC and flutist with the Alla Prima Flute and Harp Duo and the Quintessence Wind Quintet.

From the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys.

About Adrienne
"So Russell, what do you love about music?"

"To begin with...everything."

One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movie, Almost Famous.

I'll spare you the snooze worthy details of my background, which is probably similar to everyone's profile on here. Instead I'll highlight what sets me apart.

Broad Music Style and Interest - On any given day, I can listen to, perform, practice, or play everything from the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys

Extensive Training - I studied with the Principal Harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and have performed with the prestigious Curtis Symphony Orchestra

Focused but Fun - I keep students on task but have a light hearted, humorous approach to teaching.

Communicative - I'm available 24/7 (well, minus the hours I'm sleeping) if you have any questions during your practice durin
g the week. I accept text messages and videos. I support you at all times!

References and Experience - I've been teaching for over 5 years and believe I have a fresh approach to an outdated teaching method.

Adrienne is a professional teacher with stunning credentials! My previous harp teacher highly recommended her to me to continue my studies as a therapeutic harpist. She has a beautiful performance style and a great personality. Her teaching skills are amazing. In 6 months, she has improved my tone, timing, and technique so much that people at my facilities are inviting me to play at their events. And that is the proof. Thank you Adrienne!

· Harp · Online
What a great first lesson! I chose Adrienne for a harp teacher because of her description, "From the Beatles, to Bach, to the Beastie Boys..." I'm a classically trained guitarist, full-time guitar teacher, and contemporary guitar/vocal performer. I bought a Celtic harp last spring, thought maybe I could learn via Youtube videos. Nope. Not enough good instruction, not enough motivation. I was thrilled to find that Adrienne is BIG on technique, as I am with my guitar students. She was so encouraging throughout our Take Lessons Classroom session! I have a lot of practicing to do before next week's lesson, and I am so psyched!

Lutherville Timonium, MD

View Full Profile

I am a professional flautist and have taught flute for more than 20 years to students of all age groups. Throughout my years teaching I have also been a part of a multitude of orchestras and chamber groups, held solo concerts, and done recordings for American composers.

During this time I have developed teaching methods and lesson plans starting with embrasure and breathing techniques and leading to strong memorization techniques through scales and arpeggios. I have also prepared students for solo and chamber music recitals, multiple who have gone to national and international level competitions.

I encourage my students to play music of all periods including classical as well as contemporary while keeping the environment of my lessons very friendly and fun.

I look forward to meeting you and teaching you all I have to offer!

About Klodina
I am an active, professional flutist, having earned a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in flute performance. For the last 20 years I have been very involved in the music community throughout the world having worked with a multitude of orchestras and chamber groups, done recordings, and held solo concerts in Europe, Africa, and the United States. This has enriched my teaching since with my strong background I have a better understanding of the necessary techniques and skills when sharing them with my students.

I teach students of all ages from beginner to advanced. With years of experience I have developed the ability to adjust my lessons for students of different levels and create a learning environment that is fun yet challenging and full of growth. Having played a variety of genres I encourage my students to choose pieces that s
peak to them while also working on developing their techniques through shorter exercises. My goal is to help my students achieve their goals and surprise themselves going way beyond, because I truly believe there is no limit. With practice, determination, and inspiring lessons my students can reach heights they would never have imagined before.

Teaching Methods:
For beginners I usually work with the Rubank methods book as well as songs that students love to play. I often use flashcards to facilitate with site-reading and slowly introduce all the musical symbols. I adapt different techniques to meet the needs of each student. For intermediate and advanced students I prefer using scales, etudes (exercises), sonatas, concertos and solo pieces of their preference. I especially enjoy playing duets with my students, one of their favorite ways of practicing, as it combines our talents in order to create something beautiful. Through regular practice and mentorship I teach my students to become independent and confident performers as they perform solo, as part of a band, or in competitions. There is no greater joy than being able to teach my students and help them better perform and understand the music they are sharing with others. My goal has always been to be a facilitator of my students' journeys to success and to see them fall in love with the flute just like I did at a very young age.

Tools:
During my lessons I often use a tuner and metronome to help students play on tune and keep the tempo if needed. Additionally, I occasionally use a recording device so students can become more aware of their sound and can learn to self-correct. It is also a great way to hear improvement over time.

Klodina was an extremely thorough teacher, who allowed the student some flexibility in choosing songs and exercises to improve student enjoyment. She also encouraged hard work at home so that lessons could demonstrate progress in my flute playing. There was a technical focus (scales, transitions, arpeggios) to make sure that I could go to the sheet music and play it with ease. Klodina was always a friendly, kind, passionate teacher, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their musical ability.

I structure lessons so that students learn what they want to learn, while also covering notes, scales, improvisation, and reading music. I use the appropriate level Robert Cavally Melodious and Progressive Studies books, Rubank Methods for flute, and any other material the student is interested in learning.

About Kelsey
Hello there! My name is Kelsey, can't wait to meet you! I am fairly new to teaching private lessons, I started this January 2017. I love teaching, and I am very passionate about the flute! I'm excited to share my knowledge of this instrument with students, and to help them to achieve their best sound. I achieved my minor in flute performance at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and graduated with my Bachelor's in 2012. I have personally been playing the flute for 20 years, and am able to teach students both to read music, and to improv. I perform in a duo several times a month around St. Louis and surrounding cities, specializing in flute improv and flute solos. I am a very patient, and enthusiastic person, and my teaching style is flexible and fun, focusing on attainable goals so the students can experience success.
I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals!

I was referred to Kelsey by a co-worker when I decided to start my seven year old on my old flute. We weren't sure if flute would be the right instrument, but since I already had one, it was the first logical step.

After the first lesson, my daughter had a good handle on identifying the notes in the treble clef. Half the battle is getting Chloe to pay attention. A stuffy, boring instructor would never keep her interest.

Kelsey is friendly, and reliable, and keeps lessons fun.

Brittany has been more motivated to practice, and has moved forward two seat-ranks in school band since starting lessons with Kelsey. Brittany loves her. They relate in a unique way, "woman to woman," so to speak. Kelsey is very dedicated, and knowledgeable about the instrument. Brittany is in good hands.

About Regina
Hello! My name is Regina and I am passionate about teaching music!

I also have earned a Masters in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) from Columbia International University (in conjunction with USC).
I believe that each student is unique and should be treated as such, both in the setting of achievable goals and the speed at which information is learned. No two student is the same, but each is a musician in his or her own right!
I look forward to helping you reach your music learning goals!
