I've played flute for about 6 years and enjoy teaching beginners and intermediate players.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

In beginning flute, it's all about the embochure, and breath control. We will focus on making notes and tone.

About Dave
Thank you for visiting my page! You've come to the right place. Over the past several years, I've helped dozens upon dozens of music students of all ages and skill levels improve their skills at playing saxophone, clarinet, and flute. Along with basic theory, tone production, music reading, and intonation, I teach jazz and beginning improvisation, concert band, blues, soul, and R&B.

My school-age students win chair placements, place well in auditions, and some win awards. Some examples: recently, one of my sax students won the M.J. Brown Family Performing Arts Music Award, and an 11-year-old flute student won both Most Improved Jazz Student and Outstanding Achievement in his orchestra class.

My adult learners have fun re-connecting with their instrument of choice. Most students have been with me for one to three years.

Students
thrive on structure and goals, and I have developed a unique approach to practicing that gets results. I teach all ages and skill levels to play saxophone, clarinet, and flute. I cover many styles, from concert band, to jazz, blues, soul, and R&B, theory, tone, articulation, and more. I am experienced with preschoolers to middle school-age children, high school and college ages, nervous adult beginners, and special needs students.

I recommend the following lesson structure:
• First-time beginners: one 30-minute lesson per week
• Older beginners to intermediate students: one 45 minute lesson per week
• Advanced students: 60 minutes once each week

My approach to lessons is to support a competition-free environment where every level of player can feel comfortable, have fun, and make fast and steady progress. Students are also encouraged to participate in all-ages jam sessions, and at our recitals.

I work from my home studio on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Centrally located in La Mesa, my studio is just a few minutes east of Qualcomm Stadium. Plenty of free parking, and parents are encouraged to sit in during lessons.

On Thursdays, I'm in my La Jolla studio on Girard at La Jolla Music.

My own teaching experience includes private post-secondary, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies, and I’ve facilitated and run woodwind master classes at Grossmont and Valhalla High Schools.

What impresses me about Dave is that he adds humor to the lessons, yet is still firm about getting the point, or lesson across to my son. My son enjoys the lessons and looks forward to seeing Dave. I highly recommend Dave as an instructor.

I studied and played flute for 13 years, and have particular experience in 20th century music. I with studied Greer Ellison, a premier Baroque flutist, and teacher of Alexander Technique, and so have a solid foundation in breath management and alignment. If you find that your shoulders and back get particularly tense and tired while playing, I would be able to help you fix that.

About Natalie
My name's Natalie, and I'm a voice and flute teacher! I studied Vocal Performance and Flute Performance at the University of California Santa Cruz, and got my Masters of Music in Vocal Arts at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

I specialize in classical voice and opera, though I believe a good vocal technical foundation is applicable to all musical styles. I also teach music theory, for those just getting into music, and for those who would appreciate a refresher. Since I studied both flute and voice, I am especially well trained in breath management and alignment. The breath is the most important thing in both flute and voice. It's what sends our sound out into the world!

With the lessons that we will have together, we will begin with long tones to warm up the lungs and open up the throat. This warm up is vital to creating and maintaining a good tone through the duration of the lesson.
Next there will be an exercise to practice technique using a combination of scales and arpeggios.
From this point, you will be ready to present the pieces you have been working on and together we will help you improve through a variety of practice techniques. We will also discuss your goals as a musician and make the necessary plans to make those goals happen.

About Maddie
Hello there!
I can’t wait to get started with you in our lessons together. I really do enjoy teaching and helping others improve. I have been playing the flute since I was about the age of nine and I just recently graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Music (I loved every minute of it). Throughout my life I have had the opportunity to teach and learn from my peers and other students, and help them reach their goals! I have also really enjoyed having the opportunity to perform with various groups as well as individually throughout my musical career. Performing is something that I cherish as a flutist! Something I’ve always really focused on as a student and a teacher is tone—tone is the very first thing that an audience will notice about your playing as a flutist, so it’s always worth improving! Along with tone comes musicality and fluid t
echnique. These two aspects of playing are the next stepping stones to the foundation of a strong tone. I would love the chance to get to know you and become more acquainted!

Teaching and playing music have always been my two ideal careers. I began teaching younger students when I started college. My professors and former band directors would recommend students to me because of my beautiful tone and proficient technique. I have taught privately, in addition to teaching group lessons and general music for non-for-profit music programs in NYC, specifically in Brooklyn and Harlem.

Currently, I am the full-time music teacher at a Round Rock ISD elementary school. I love studying and using the Kodaly and Orff methods in my music classroom to teach music concepts and literacy. I love making learning music FUN, so I am always researching and finding new, research based methods to teach.

In addition to being a proficient classical player, I think it's important to bring the interests of my student's musical taste into consideration. Playing things that my students are excited about brings life to my teaching and their playing.

I love helping students ...

About Jessica
I am so lucky to be a musician and share my love of music with the world! My career as a professional music teacher in Round Rock ISD is one way I reach hundred of children each day with my passion for music. I am able to continually learn, grow, and expand my practice of teaching through daily experience, conferences, and professional development.

I began playing flute in middle school at the age of 12. I was lucky to have the opportunity to attend the prestigious LaGuardia High School for Music and Art and the Performing Arts, in addition to the Juilliard School on the weekends. I continued to study flute into college and graduate school, where I studied with world renowned professors at established music conservatories.

My passion for teaching and love of music have brought me to play and live internationally. I am grateful
for the experiences I have had and continue to have as a musician!

My goal as a teacher is to create an enjoyable, comfortable, and efficient learning environment for my students. All lessons are custom-fit for each individual student. Not only do I prioritize the learning of my students, I make sure that my students are comfortable and encouraged. The love of music is important to being a motivated player. It is critical that the student are enjoying the lessons. This is why I spend much of my free time customizing a suitable lesson for each of my students. At the same time, I am extremely organized in documenting the progress of all my students. I also make sure that parents/guardians are fully aware of the progress of their children.

About Dana
**During the Summer of 2018 I will be teaching in the Greater Boston Area on all days EXCEPT Wednesday, where I will be teaching in Lowell and Chelmsford**

I am currently the only flute instructor at the Chelmsford Academy of Music. I also teach lessons at UMass Lowell's Music Hall: Durgin Hall. I am currently a student at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I was accepted to the school as a Music Education major and recently switched to a Entrepreneurship and Finance Double Major with a Minor in Music. My love for teaching lessons have inspired my change of major since my ultimate goal is to own a music store and lesson studio. In my college experience, I have been part of the UMass Lowell Marching band, University Orchestra, Concert Band, and Wind Ensemble. I also have experience as the director of the UMass Lowell's Flute Choir

Anabel is amazing! My daughter has been taking flute lessons from her for over a year. Anabel really helped her surpass what she has been learning in her elementary band class. Anabel is extremely talented herself and is also an excellent teacher. The fact that she does lessons in my home makes it so very convenient for me as well.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs

Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly … Read More
