Every personality is different, therefore every students not only is different but has individually different goals. This may range from wanting to learn an instrument just for their own fun, or maybe wanting to also play in a group or ensemble, maybe the student is part of a school wind ensemble and needs help with the instrument. Others may want help to be able to pass a music school entrance audition. As you can see there is no one-size-fits-all teaching strategy.
I have come to learn that all students learn in their own unique way and at their own pace. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to identify these unique traits, encourage their strengths and improve their weaknesses. I also make sure they are learning what they want to learn, but more importantly, teach them what they need to learn to continuously excel musically. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
As long as I have been playing ive been teaching. I actually surpassed my music teachers in elementary middle and high school and taught myself much of what I know through materials avialable to me at the school. I taught my recorder teacher how read and play the alto recorder and read bass clef. From then I had multiple teaching oppotunities such as youth groups, adult worship bands and private lessons. I telll anybody who is serious about learning music and instruments that time put in is a key component of succeeding while having fun at the same time. My goal is to teach according to my students needs, everybody is unique and learns in their own way. I teach people of all ages and lookfard to exploring the music word with you.
My musician experiences began early on the piano, then the violin and flute were added shortly after that. I began teaching/coaching in high school, and continued on teaching privately while majoring in music in college. I received numerous scholarships for my playing. My students continue to play today. I am always thoughtful and positive about my teacher to student comments, giving encouragement as much as possible. I am a lifelong learner, and music is an excellent way to promote this interest.

It is never too late to begin flute! We have many students who begin as adults. Our network of teachers have experience working with all ages and can work with you whether you are a beginner or advanced player.
Young players should begin by renting. Consider renting well-known brands like Yamaha, Gemeinhardt, and Armstrong. An instructor may recommend a curved head-joint called a "candy cane" head-joint is available. More advanced players might want to consider purchasing a flute with an extended B foot joint and open-hole keys.
Flute lessons can occur in your home for the same price as in-studio lessons. The student lets Musika know what days and times work best, and we arrange for an instructor to come to your home, at no extra cost to you!
Most flutists begin in 4th grade. Unlike the piano or specific string instruments, it is not a good idea to start the flute before the student enters elementary school. The student does need to have the strength to appropriately hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to blow into the flute and produce a supported sound. The flute is easy to hold, carry, and care for, so many young players find it an attractive option.
Review by Debbie E.
I had always wanted to take vocal lessons, but was very nervous about it until I had the opportunity to have Ali as my instructor. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me realize my strengths while giving me other areas to work on and strengthen. I liked how Ali had me sing out of my "comfort" zone to realize my vocal range. It is obvious that Ali loves music and sharing that love with her students. She is very good at what she does and works well with both male and female voices. I highly recommend Ali and give her solid 5 stars

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.
Review by Suzette
She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda

Review by Angie Ignazzitto
Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
