I took a year of Flute while I was in the university. I can teach you all the foundation you need to continue on your own.

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

Daniel has been adjusting the schedule flexibly and he has helped my son a lot.
My son had been struggling with his Math class, however, it became much easier for him to catch up with his class as soon as he started to study with Daniel. I appreciate that I could see his progress on his grade. Thank you, Daniel!

My philosophy is to help the students focus on their mental and physical states while practicing and performing. If both their body and mind are relaxed when playing, they will accomplish more and be happier with their performance!

I have been taking private flute lessons for over 12 years and have experienced many different teaching styles and philosophies. I recently began teaching my own private lessons a little over a year ago, and since then I have learned a lot about helping students progress quickly and efficiently.

Each lesson will begin with a duet so that I can evaluate the student's progress since their last lesson. We will then discuss their practicing and what the student believes is working for them and what they are struggling with. I can then address any issues or concerns that they have throughout the lesson.

Students will be asked to study technical and tonal exercises as well as repertoire. I will help the student choose pieces that are at a good level for ...

About Leanna
Leanna is available for in-studio and online lessons and loves to teach students of all ages. She has been playing the flute for 14 years and is eager to share her knowledge and expertise of the instrument! Leanna grew up in a learning environment, as both her parents are teachers. Her mother teaches music in her hometown, so Leanna had the fortune of observing and listening to her mother give countless private lessons in their home. If you do not see an available time on her schedule that works for you, please feel free to contact her with the time that you prefer!

Leanna is currently in her first year of her master's degree in flute performance at Northwestern University. She has participated in many masterclasses with artists such as Denis Bouriakov, Emmanuel Pahud, and Gary Schocker. She currently performs with the Eugene Ballet Co

I teach flute primarily through the tried and true Rubank method. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for flute to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice﮳com.

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

I have been playing for 12 years, but am young enough to remember (and still feel!) the struggles of practicing and playing the flute. In addition, haven taken over 4 years of Music Theory and Ear Training at music conservatories, I can provide a great way for beginners to learn to read music as well as to hear it.
I will incorporate these aspects into your lessons:
-scales/technique
-articulation
-tone
-intonation
-vibrato
-rhythm
-musicality/being inspired
-how to practice/practice methods

Happy flute playing! :)

I am able to teach Flute at 3 locations:
- West 13th Street (Mannes School of Music)
- Your Home
- Linford Road (My Home) **Winter & Summer ONLY

About Rebecca
Hello! Thank you for coming to view my profile! I am a junior at the Mannes School of Music studying Flute Performance with Judith Mendenhall. I graduated from Great Neck South High School and Manhattan School of Music Precollege. I have had a wide age range of flute students whom I taught how to read music as well as the flute itself. These students then went on to participate in NYSSMA. I have always had a passion for learning and teaching and hope to instill my passion upon you! Don't hesitate to send me any questions you may have!

**The availability drop down is a bit confusing. During the winter and summer, I will be able to teach in/around Great Neck AND in NYC, whereas during the Fall and the Spring I will be living in NYC and ONLY able to teach there. If you have any questions, please send me a message and we can work out our a
vailability through the message system. In the photos section of the profile, I have posted my free hours from August 28th - December 20th. Hopefully this also helps!

Thank you again for taking interest in my profile!

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 teach music from the perspective of a modern musician and a songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun, as well as learning everything you want to learn in these lessons! We will get you playing songs you enjoy, right from the start. The most important thing to me, is for my students to have fun during their lessons, because real learning comes from commitment, and commitment comes much easier when you enjoy what you do.

About Loralee
Loralee began exploring music at a very young age, as part of a musical household. She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensembles. Aside from her love of music, 15 years of performing and studying dance led her to discover her joy in teaching when she began to teach creative movement and ballet to young dancers. In college, she began learning guitar and writing music to match a growing passion for songwriting and acoustic folk music. Her musical pursuits led her to join a local alt pop/punk band as a vocalist, and she performed with them in the surrounding area. After graduating with a B.A. at Michigan State University, Loralee began to pursue a career as a solo musici
an, and released a 4 song EP “If You Were a Song”. Now, she has written hundreds of songs and performs her original music in the San Francisco area.
