My teaching experience includes students between the ages of 8 and 70. I believe in the individual approach and decide what music books and methods to use and recommend after the first few lessons with the student. Playing the flute is a great skill that lets you appreciate and express music. It also enhances your focus and the quickness of your mind since you think of a few things simultaneously while playing. For fun you can play your favorite song, compose one or play duets with your teacher.

Flute lessons can be fun, educational and helpfull. Playing the flute is a great skill that lets you appreciate and express music.

Portland, OR

View Full Profile

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.

About Emily
With over twenty years of flute experience, Emily H. is new to the Portland area. 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. She also has taught flute for over 15 years, and is now accepting students in Portland.

Emily holds a Bachelor of Music degree, summa cum laude, from the Hartt School in Hartford, Connecticut.

With a holistic mind/body approach to music, Emily has supplemented her academic study with further education in Alexander Technique, yoga, body mapping, and mindfulness meditation. She incorporates these techniques into her own playing and into her teaching.

In 2014, Emily H. and her duo partner Kirsten Carrell Osborne released their Alla Prima Duo debut album Song To the Waking Sun, which includes
music inspired by the natural and spiritual world.

Emily is fantastic! Within the first 15 minutes of my first lesson, I was sounding much, much better. I'm an adult returning to the flute and Emily is teaching me more than I ever learned in years of lessons. In addition to being knowledgeable, she makes me comfortable. Now I just don't want to put my flute down.

If you are an adult beginner, or "re-beginner," or really anyone wanting to learn and improve, then look no further!!! Emily is hands down the best music instructor I've had the pleasure to study under. As someone with performance anxiety, she helped me feel comfortable playing and was always encouraging--never an unkind word and never made me feel uncomfortable for making mistakes! She truly cares about her students' improvement and that her students find joy in creating music. Emily's knowledge and background is astounding! Need music recommendations? She has them. Need instrument recommendations? She knows what's what. Interested in the history behind music theory and interpretation of classical pieces, she can refer you to countless materials. Emily is a fountain of knowledge and talent. One really cannot find a more wonderful instructor.

As a devoted instructor, I have a passion for teaching students of all levels. I use knowledge I learned from my flute professors and create a teaching style based on each of my students' individual needs. I value the student being able to create their own ideas and suggestions.

I cover topics from developing proper form to producing a beautiful tone, creating own musical ideas, performing with self-confidence, developing a helpful warm-up, and preparing for an audition.

I highly recommend Sarah. She has excellent skills for any teacher - she's encouraging, knowledgeable and patient. I'm an adult who played piano years ago and always wanted to play the flute but I was frustrated, squeaky, out of breath, and out of tune. With a few weeks of lessons I'm further along than I was trying to teach myself over years.
I had years of serious music study with critical music teachers who made me embarrassed about mistakes and dread my lessons. With Sarah, the learning is fun and I now look forward to every lesson.

I am an experienced flute player, teacher and choral conductor. I have 12 years of experience teaching music (both singing and flute), and have worked with students of all ages. I believe in developing the student as an overall musician, in addition to mastering the specific instrument of study.

About Megan
I am a flute player, choral conductor and teacher with 12 years experience. I studied at Indiana University with students of Thomas Robertello, and have played in orchestras and ensembles in Boston and NYC, as well as Virginia. I have worked with and enjoy teaching students of all ages.

I approach my students from the standpoint of developing overall musicianship, in addition to the specific technique of the flute. This involves learning basic fingerings and breath technique, scales, and music reading; but also, very importantly, how to play music with lyricism and beauty, and how to be part of an ensemble.

For beginner and intermediate students, we will use the Rubank series of study books, along with scales, etudes, and solos. We will focus on learning to produce a beautiful sound, and how to treat the flute as an extension of the
singing voice.

I love finding ways for the student to master technique, solve problems, and most of all, develop as a musician.

Megan is a delight! I have worked with Megan on many different aspects of music, from music theory, to voice coaching, to following her baton as a conductor. She is extremely thoughtful and has a wonderful sense of musical expression. She is able to work with many different skill levels and has the patience of a saint! She wants to see her students improve and finds great joy in guiding them through the process of musical discovery and breakthroughs of all kinds.

I have worked with Megan over many years as a fellow colleague in music. With her students, she is patient, thoughtful and challenging. She treats each student as an individual and addresses what they need to succeed. As a musician, she has years of experience both in performing and conducting and therefore has a wealth of knowledge that she passionately imparts upon her students and colleagues.

I have experience preparing students for competitions and auditions. At any level, for any player, I focus on covering fundamentals and building a strong, solid foundation. I have taught one-on-one, in small groups, in large groups, flute ensembles, and in masterclass settings. I am happy to teach group lessons or sectionals. I look forward to meeting and making music with you!
