Sofia G

Instruments:

I am a patient and motivated instructor with an enourmous passion for music. In 2009, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors of Arts in Flute Performance. My performance experience worldwide enriches my musicianship, as well as performing in Harvard University Theather and in the presence of Queen of Jordan Lisa Naheeb.

Katherine G

Instruments:

As a recent graduate of the University of Delaware, I hold a degree in Music Education and am certified to teach music from K-12. I have been playing the flute for thirteen years and have performed in ensembles ranging from the UD Symphony Orchestra as a flutist/piccolo player to UD Singers as a vocalist and UD Jazz Ensemble II as a trombonist. I spent the past two summers performing operetta and musicals on flute, piccolo, clarinet, and alto/tenor saxophone with the College Light Opera Company. I have always had a passion for teaching; I am currently working on my M.A. in Musicology at Tufts University, and I hope to pursue my PhD. in order to work with students at the college level.

David R

Instruments:

I am a musician who believes that I am a better performer because I teach, and I am a better teacher because I perform. To me, playing the flute and teaching the flute go hand in hand as I have gained so many analytical skills that help me relate to student's musical struggles and I can help students develop solid problem-solving skills. I have studied and performed in five countries and have studied with numerous fine teachers. As a result, I have a huge database of information I can draw on in lessons to help my students improve. I earned a MM at the Longy School of Music where I studied with Marco Granados, and a BM from San Francisco State University.

Sarah H

Instruments:

I am a passionate and patient instructor who loves to help students find joy in making music. I believe that developing a methodical way of practicing and thinking about music reading, tone production, and creating rhythm is the key to unlocking the ability of students to enjoy the music they produce. In 2008 I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. During my ungraduate years I studied classical saxophone with Dale Underwood and was selected as a soloist with the university's concert band on two occassions. I was also a member of the school's jazz ensembles and began to study improvisation. Between 2008 and 2013 I taught classes and lessons, mostly classical in nature, but also played regularly in jazz ensembles around Washington DC. I honed my improvisation skills through attending Barry Harris' Jazz Workshop in NY and recieving lessons from the great Lee Konitz. I've had the opportunity to play with many formidable members of the jazz community, both old and young, and have performed at many venues. You can view my website for the particulars, along with samples of my jazz improvisation and free improvisation.

More Information About Flute Lessons

For a beginning flutist, Musika suggests renting an instrument at first, and purchasing later on if the student enjoys and wants to continue playing long-term. Yamaha is a really reliable brand, and Armstrong or Gemeinhardt are also solid choices. Once the student progresses, he or she could look into purchasing a more advanced model with open hole keys and a B foot joint.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home Flute lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's flute lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation; how to appropriately shape your lips to blow into the instrument, how to develop a solid tone in low and high registers, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, fingerings for notes, and techniques for developing quick finger action for passages, different articulation: how to slur or tongue cleanly, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the flute!
It is never too late to begin flute! We have many students who begin as adults. Our teachers have experience working with all ages and can work with you whether you are a beginner or advanced player.
The minimum age for beginning flute lessons would be around age 7. Any earlier will be too frustrating for the player. The flute does require a lot of air and the student needs to be big enough to blow properly and hold the flute up without letting the head tilt. If a young student is very eager to begin early, consider recorder lessons.
