I am a passionate performer and flute instructor who loves working with students of all ages and levels. I recently graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a Graduate Performance Diploma and a Master’s Degree. Previously, I attended the Eastman School of Music where I received my Bachelor’s Degree. I have had the opportunity to perform across the country in numerous orchestral and solo performances. My passion for teaching began at a very young age and I first started teaching 10 years ago. Since then I have taught a large variety of students ranging from elementary school age to adult.
I began teaching private lessons when I was in high school. Since then I have gained more experience teaching privately and in group settings. In college I had the opportunity to direct and teach a community flute choir for adults. Currently I teach private and group lessons to high school students through the Boston Public Public School District. It is important to me to make sure my students are enjoying the work they are doing and have a say in the music they are learning while developing good practice tools.
As every student has different needs I don’t have a specific plan that I follow. Rather I like to adapt my lesson plans to each individual students goals and playing ability. I always have my students work on a mixture of technique, etudes, and solo repertoire. For very early beginners I like to work out of Trever Wye’s Very First Flute Book and his Beginner’s Book for the Flute. I also like the book Forty Little Pieces in Progressive Order for Beginner Flutists and from there progress to First Solos for the Flute Player. Once a student has progressed past the beginner level do we figure out what comes next on a student by student basis.
For me teaching is incredibly rewarding. It brings me great pride to see my students grow and as musicians and reach their personal goals. For each student I like to set specific, small weekly and lesson goals as well as broader long term goals, with the intention that each small goal will bring us closer to the large one. I also understand that each student has different learning styles and paces which is why I do not have one specific curriculum for every student. Rather I listen to and adapt to what each student needs. Most importantly, I listen to what inspires and motivates each student. By doing so I can support and encourage each student by providing them with materials that they feel like they can benefit from and connect with.
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.
