My goal the last few years has been learning and perfecting the technique and different styles of the clarinet. I've worked and studied with some of the best clarinetist in the world and feel I have a great idea of what it takes, and have a great love for what I'm doing. I am well versed in many styles of playing from jazz, to romantic, to pop, even klezmer having studied with Frank London from the Klezmatics. I've done quite a bit of teaching both privately, and in a group classroom format. I am constantly seeking to spread my love of the clarinet and the many different genres it can be used both through my playing, and through my teaching. For my visit my website. mfclarinet.webs.com
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.
I am a highly passionate instructor and love all things about the flute. I graduated from Morehead State University with degrees in music education and music performance. During my time there I had the opportunity to travel to different countries and perform with various university ensembles. My performing experiences involved choir, orchestra, wind band, and chamber groups. Recently I just relocated to Boston to become more involved as a teacher and performer. Currently I am teaching full-time at the Conservatory Lab Charter School as a resident artist with the El Sistema program.
I am passionate about teaching beginner level students of all ages, especially elementary school students! I start all of my students with basic technical skills, the finger chart, basic rhythm and major/minorscales. I have enjoyed many years of teaching and performing in community orchestras.

At the beginning level, renting a flute is the best option. For younger, smaller flutists, the student might consider using a curved head joint to make to the flute easier to hold. As the student progresses, consider purchasing a more advanced model with open hole keys and B foot joint.
The flute is a great instrument to begin in elementary school. Young flutists are able to progress quickly, and many school programs allow flute players to participate in both band and orchestra. Typically, Musika recommends waiting until age 8 before beginning flute lessons.
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!
The flute can be an incredibly rewarding instrument to study as an adult. Of the woodwind instruments, it can relatively easy to learn to play and most adults notice progress right away! The flute can be a wonderful instrument to play as a soloist or with fellow musicians.

I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!

We value Chelsea for the quality of her lessons, but also for the flexibility of her schedule. She has worked around family vacations, impromptu summer camps and the upcoming school year. Emily is better prepared to start middle school band this year due to flute lessons from Chelsea and we plan to continue the lessons for the foreseeable future.

Ileen is a very attentive instuctor. she is patient and works hard to see her student succeed. if a concept is unclear she expains it in other ways to ensure understanding. I would highly recommend ileen to students of all levels who want to learn guitar and music theory to thoroughly enjoy the instrument and music

Mr. Lou M. is a God-send! With the various needs that our organization requires from our education partners in order to provide enrichment services to our students, Mr. Lou M. has always gone above and beyond in meeting all of those needs. Our students are learning, our caregivers are happy and satisfied, and we couldn't be more pleased with his performance.

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.

Being I'm a woman, I was a little apprehensive having a male teacher (he knew this), however, after my trial lesson I realized he knows what he's doing and I had nothing to worry about!! He is very knowledgable on the piano and vocal techniques. He has a big vocal range so he is able to hit the high notes to be able to show me how I need to sing it. He is also phenomenal on the piano. I would highly recommend him for vocal and piano. Also, I don't know how to sight read music and he is teaching how to. I've been taking lessons with him for a month (my trial lesson was on 1/11) and I have already seen a huge improvement. I am an intermediate level singer looking to improve my vocal technique, breathing and improve my confidence in my singing abilities, Alex is definitely helping me do that.

My two daughters wanted to study piano fore some time now and just recently I found Musikalessons website and teacher Milica. I can only say that my daughters are very happy with their piano lessons and simply adore Milica. They already made a great progress and we're all happy with what they learned in this short period. Thank you Musikalessons and Milica.
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.
