From beginners to the semi-professional, I can teach you everything you need to know about how to be a successful flute player. From tone quality, intonation, rhythm, sight-reading skills, and expanding your repertoire, I will help you learn to play the flute and achieve your goals!

About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and obtained my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different
teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

My daughter plays flute in a high school wind ensemble and orchestra. She is first chair of 23 and has recently been learning very challenging music including many solos. When she needed instruction above what her school could offer her, I went online and found Brenda's profile. Brenda's resume for performance and teaching is impressive. What the resume can't speak to is how well she works with her students. Brenda helped my daughter immensely when she needed it most not only technically with her playing, but with her confidence. I would recommend Brenda as an instructor for any age or skill level.

Instruction for fundamentals and techniques of flute as a primary instrument (or doubling instrument) in both classical and jazz styles.

About Stephanie
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Stephanie, I am a teaching-artist from El Paso, Texas. I currently reside, perform and teach in the Boston and greater Boston area.

I am a recent graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music with a Masters and Graduate Diploma in Saxophone Performance. I received my Bacherlors in Music Education from New Mexico State University.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two prof
essions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

I am devoted and dedicated to helping find each of my students' strengths, weaknesses and style of learning. Once I have identified these traits, I am able to develop lessons and repertoire that helps each students become the most efficient learner and best musician they can be.

I pride myself in creating a fun and safe learning environment in which I establish a firm musical foundation for my students. Lessons include: scales, etudes, articulation, dynamic and sight reading exercises, standard repertoire, recording and analyzing performances, music history lessons, and exploration of the sounds, genres and artists of saxophone/flute/clarinet/piano.

Simultaneously, my students cultivate many other skills while learning how to play their instrument. Students enhance their fine motor skills and ability to memorize, students increase their overall self-confidence and become self-sufficient and creative problem solvers. I am passionate about educating and empowering my students and I enjoy connecting with a wide array of musicians of all ages, playing levels and backgrounds.

Feel free to contact me to inquire about lessons, I hope to hear from you soon!

Stephanie is a patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic educator and collaborator who loves to perform and teach. I had the honor of working with her for nearly four years while we pursued similar degrees at New Mexico State University. She consistently brought a level of maturity and preparedness beyond her age to our rehearsals and practices. If I was limited to only one word to describe her, it would be "professional".

Whether you're preparing for All-State, College Auditions, or just want to improve, I can help! I have over 5 years experience as a private lesson teacher, wonderful training from some of the best flute teachers in the world, and a lot of experience with performing and auditions. You can expect a very kind, but challenging atmosphere. You can expect mock auditions, developing site reading skills, and just becoming the most well-rounded musician you can be!

Here is an idea of what you can expect at all levels:

Beginners-
First, I will help you find a great flute if you don't have one yet! Parents, I can help you find local shops with the best options for you to either rent or own a flute, and also recommend repair shops.
We will spend a lot of time on just the headjoint, hand position, posture, how to hold the flute and put it together.
Once we have a beautiful, consistent sound, then we can start to put the flute together. For beginners, the Trevor Wye books are amazing, ...

About Kylee
Hey there! I'm Kylee, and I just moved to Austin! I am a private teacher and performer in the area.
I received my Masters in Flute Performance at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, and my Bachelors in Flute Performance from Duquesne University.

I have won numerous competitions including the James Pellerite Orchestral Excerpt Competition, Tuesday Musical Club Scholarship Competition, Women's Advisory Board Scholarship Competition, Duquesne University Wind Concerto Competition, Butler County Symphony's Young Artist Competition, and was a finalist in the United States Army 'Pershing's Own' National Collegiate Solo Competition.

My goal is to make you love music and better at your instrument! My studio will be very kind and nurturing but also competitive. Whether you are preparing for TMEA All-state or just want to get be
tter at flute, I can help! :)

I understand that everyone is at different levels, and my lessons will cater to your level and how serious you are about flute.

If you want more intense lessons to prepare you for college auditions or other things, great! In these lessons, we will prepare with site reading, mock auditions, recording, duets, and more.

If you just want to learn how to play your favorite songs on flute, great!

I've been teaching privately for 5 years, have excellent training from professionals, and years of experience performing and creating a career out of music.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!

Happy fluting,

I am the conductor of the Bloomington Chamber Singers. Kylee performed with my orchestras for a number of years while she lived in Bloomington and also played a number of times during worship services at the church where I direct the music program. Kylee is first and foremost, a masterful technical musician who understands her instrument deeply, and is keenly aware of style and the challenges of ensemble playing. She also is a warm, creative, and caring individual respected by all around her. I recommend her highly and know that anyone who studies with her will discover new talents within themselves.

Kylee has been coming to our adult day program since she first came to Bloomington to attend the Jacobs School of Music. Throughout her graduate work she was a regular visitor to our small program. Not only did she perform beautifully, but she engaged with us....teaching us about flute playing, various aspects of the instruments she plays, background on types of music, and she built relationships with us. We were happy to celebrate with her when she got her new absolutely gorgeous flute! She is warm, has great communication skills, invites questions and learning. She was FAR more than a performer here, she was invested in us and we were happy to adopt her during her time in Bloomington. Kylee's demeanor, musical excellence and personality make her an excellent fit for lessons or events. We HIGHLY recommend working with her!

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.

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 work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon
I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BMA from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collaborate to find music that he or she is interested in, plus work on exercises that will build technique and sound quality. It doesn’t matter WHAT you’re playing, but HOW you play it.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years and played in a wide variety of settings. In lessons, I’ll draw from that experience to help students achieve their musical goals.

As a performing artist, I’ve played in classic big bands, small jazz combos, and R&B style horn sections, just to name a few. I’m passionate about classical music, jazz, R&B, and funk, but good
technique is good technique, and a proficient musician should and can jump from one style to another with ease.

Provo, UT

View Full Profile

Experienced flute teacher seeking beginning and intermediate students. Former student of New York-based flutist John Savage. Well-studied in the Berbiguier Etudes for flute, as well as pieces by Mozart, Poulenc and Bach.

About Andrew
I have been an active professional musician in the Utah Valley for the past 4 years. I came to Utah from Portland, Oregon in 2011 to study at Brigham Young University under Ray Smith, where I earned a BM in Saxophone Performance in 2018. While there, I performed as a member of the BYU Synthesis Big Band as a performer and featured soloist, sharing the stage with the likes of Gladys Knight, Peter Hollens, Konrad Herwig, Ed Calle, Corey Christianson and others. In 2016 I went with Synthesis on a tour of Eastern Europe, where the band and I performed at the Salkrastu Jazz Festival. I can be heard as a featured soloist on the tracks “Laura” and “Downtime” from the BYU Synthesis Album “Downtime” (2018). On the classical side, I was selected as a finalist three years in a row for the BYU Concerto Competition, played tenor saxophone from 2015 to
2017 in the BYU Wind Symphony, and played principal clarinet in the BYU Symphony orchestra in 2018.

In addition to my performances at BYU, I have performed and collaborated with numerous groups and artists on the Provo and Salt Lake music scenes as both a commercial and studio artist, such as my collaboration with Utah-based vocalist Emily Merrell in her performance at the 2018 Jazz Education Network Conference in Dallas, Texas. I also returned to the northwest in 2015 to take part in the Port Townsend Jazz Festival, where I studied with jazz greats such as Terrell Stafford, Steve Wilson, Bob Mintzer and others.

I am a passionate teacher and am happy to take students of all levels, over Skype or in person.
