Featured Naperville Flute Teachers

Robert S

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar, electric bass, and woodwinds for over 30 years.  I have a Bachelor of Arts from Northeastern Illinois University.  I have performed all over the Chicago area in a variety of Rock, Americana, Country, Folk, Blues, and Celtic ensembles.  I write original songs and compose music for dance and film.

Jeff S

Instruments:

Jeff  has emerged as a versatile and powerful musical force. His talents as an interpreter of new, old and diverse styles have made him uniquely suited to promoting new music, transcriptions and jazz improvisation during an exciting period for the saxophone. Some of Jeff’s most recent efforts in chamber music have proven fruitful. His saxophone quartet, the Estrella Consort recently returned from a nine-day tour of Ecuador and has been invited to perform in the prestigious Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition.  His trio, Trikaya, was awarded the 2012 Music Teachers of North America’s second prize for woodwind chamber music. Jeff played lead alto saxophone in the Arizona State University Concert Jazz Band and anchored the horn section of The JJ's, one of Phoenix's most popular bands. His abilities as a jazz artist and as a woodwind specialist earned him a position with the 2011 touring production of Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.  He also conducted the Scottsdale Musical Theater Company production of Guys and Dolls. An avid proponent of New Music, Jeff has commissioned original scores from composers in Arizona, California, New York, Washington and China. He has premiered many new works for saxophone including his own soprano saxophone transcriptions of César Franck’s A Maj Violin Sonata and Olivier Messian’s Fantasy for Violin and Piano. The soon-to-be-published Franck transcription is already seeing use within the saxophone community.  

Anthony R

Instruments:

Anthony Rodriguez is a New York/ Chicago Based Woodwind Doubler who studied flute with Bernard Goldberg, oboe with Bob Ingliss, and saxophone with Paul Cohen. Past teachers have included Helen Campo and Salim Washington.  Anthony has recently toured Indonesia as the Oboist for Phantom of the Opera, Reed player for Northern Stages Peter Pan/ Nunsense, and is currently playing multiple shows in the local Chicago area. I have taught many students in New York who have competed and gotten gold with distinctions multiple years in a row in their NYSSMA competitions. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to check out my website. www.Anthonymrodriguez.com

Emma C

Instruments:

I have been an active and passionate freelance musician and music educator for the past 10 years. After completing my Bachelor's Degree at the University of Kansas, I moved to Chicago to pursue my Master's degree and studied with renowned flutist Dionne Jackson. While completing my Master's degree, I was able to study and learn from musicians of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. I was able to perform at the CSO's Symphony Hall and was featured of Chicago's premeire classical radio station, WFMT. Prior to moving to Chicago, I ran a private flute studio out of my home for 6 years. I have also been on faculty at the Midwestern Music Academy, and was a clinician for the Blue Valley School District. While my love of performing has been a major motivator for me, my true passion is performing arts advocacy, education, and musical outreach. I have been involved with numerous non-profit organizations both in Chicago and Kansas City and have found that my greatest joy comes from sharing my love of music with others through education and outreach.

Derek B

Instruments:

Hey there! I'm Derek Brown, and I've been teaching music lessons for over 10 years.  I specialize in saxophone, jazz, and music theory, as well as flute and clarinet. I graduated with a Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music in 2008, and a Bachelors degree in Classical and Jazz Saxophone performance at Hope College (in Holland, MI) in 2006. I was the director of jazz studies for six years at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, and recently moved to Chicago to perform and teach lessons full time. I love working with people of all ages and abilities, and really like to focus on the fun of music-making during lessons.

More Information About Flute Lessons

"Young players should begin by renting. Consider renting well-known brands like Yamaha, Gemeinhardt, and Armstrong. To help smaller players hold the instrument, a curved headjoint called a ""candy cane"" headjoint is available. More advanced players might want to condsider purchasing a flute with an extended B foot joint and open-hole keys."
What is unique about a program like Musika, is that we offer in-home lessons for no additional cost. This allows the student to save the time and money that would normally be spent traveling to a studio.
Flute lessons will be tailored to the specific goals of the student. Every student will be introduced to music theory and the process of reading music. New flutists will learn how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument, how to correctly blow into the instrument, articulation and fingering, and how to have fun playing the flute!
Flute can be a wonderful instrument for older students, especially those who have escaped, or already dealt with, the plight of braces! Of the woodwinds, the flute can be a relatively easy instrument for beginners, and an extremely satisfying instrument to study at any age.
The flute is the smallest instrument in the band and is therefore easy for young players to transport and hold. Musika recommends beginning the flute around 7 or 8 when the student is old enough to proper hold the instrument and press the keys. The flute does take significant amount of air so the player does need to have the lung capacity to produce a supported sound.
