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. It also enhances your capability to focus and the quickness of your mind since you think of a few different things simultaneously when playing the instrument. And the fun part - well you can play your favorite song, compose something yourself or have fun playing duets with me or fellow flute students.

Yana is a superb instructor. She promptly identified my strong points and let me know those areas that needed improvement. She is patient, yet she keeps the student moving along to the next goal. I look forward to my next lesson.

Private Flute Teacher
About Gabriel

I view my role as an educator to be bigger than simply training a performer. I believe in creating a complete musician--one who thinks deeply about music. I accomplish this by working on, yes, the technical aspects of playing an instrument, but also through constant listening, ear-training, theory education, and history education. I engage both children and adults through fun activities that build musical knowledge.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take a multi-pronged approach to music education and, likewise, to lessons. Depending on the age and ability of the student, a lesson typically involves a brief warm-up followed by review of earlier material, introduction of new concepts or discussion of improvement areas, then a look forward at what to work on this week. The material ranges from technical exercises such as scales, thirds, finger p

atterns, etc. to ear-training activities, progressive study pieces, and long-term repertoire projects. For some students, I also add listening or light research assignments to encourage musical discovery.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have flutes to rent to students for a small maintenance fee. I provide all of the educational materials for piano students though may ask a student to purchase a book or two. I occasionally can provide or lend sheet music, but mostly I expect the student to purchase those materials as well as books for theory/history.

*** Specialties ***
My flute students receive methods all over the board from Marcel Moyse, Taffanel, and Gaubert to Trevor Wye and Wagner. My theoretical knowledge is quite comprehensive and always taught through a historical lens. My piano students (I have several young beginners currently) receive combined methods from Bartók, Faber and Faber, Bastien, Donald Waxman, and many of my own inventive techniques. I have experience with neurodiverse students.

Private Flute Teacher

I have studied the flute for about 17 years, and I been teaching the flute for about 8 years. I began teaching beginners in band sectionals, and have since had experience with beginners, advanced, adults, and everyone in between.
I strive to help my students bring out their artistic voice. Through a solid technique foundation and fun exercises, I can help you on your way to success and beautiful self-expression.

About Kimberly

My educational background is in flute performance; I have completed a Bachelor's from American University, Master's at Catholic University, and Artist Certificate at George Mason University, all in music. I have been teaching flute lessons to students of all different levels, from beginners to adults, since 2010 and would love to add to my studio!

Another passion of mine is math. I began volunteering as a peer tutor in high school and have since had experience in helping a wide variety of ages and ability levels throughout many different curricula. I am able to provide great test taking tips, homework help, and an extra boost to keep students ahead of the class.

Kim is truly amazing in every way. She is the best math tutor in Washington DC hands down. She is patient, smart and extremely easy to work with and learn from. She has helped me enormously prepare for getting into business school. I strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a fantastic math tutor who knows how to break down difficult concepts in a comprehensible manner.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in music. I have more than 9 years of experience teaching students music both as a private instructor. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

Let's work hard together to improve!

About Carly

For Spanish:
My name is Carly and I am a Spanish teacher who has taught in private and public schools so I'm familiar with the curriculum that is offered there. I gained my first classroom teaching experience when I lived abroad in South Korea and taught English. I transferred all those skills here.

I have taught various subjects from fruits and animals to reading comprehension in the target language. I love teaching and love seeing my students progress. I will tailor the lessons to your needs and goals.

Caitlin O.

Olney, MD 20832


Private Flute Teacher

Caitlin enjoys teaching students of all ages and ability levels, and has experience teaching students ages 6 through adult, from beginners picking up the flute for the very first time to advanced students. She works to customize her teaching to best suit each individual’s learning style, and aims to give her students the tools they need to achieve success in their own musical goals. Caitlin believes that learning an instrument should be fun and should boost confidence rather than anxiety; she strives to create a safe, comfortable space in every lesson, where stress in low but focus is high, so that maximum learning can take place.

Caitlin hopes that through sharing her passion for music making, she is able to help foster a lifelong curiosity and love of music in her students.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Flute Teacher

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!
