Hi! My name is Emily and I am a flute performance major at the Cincinnati Conservatory. I am a motivated player and love to share passion of music with others! I have had 3 years of prior experience in teaching and have taught several students in both the Indianapolis and Cincinnati area. By taking private lessons with me, students will learn proper tone production, fingering, and breath control on flute. Students with be exposed to a variety of flute music and will learn disciple and intrinsic motivation. They will also improve performing and auditioning skills.
As stated previously, I have had roughly 3 years prior experience of teaching. I have taught a variety of ranges of players such as very beginner students and more advanced high school students.
Why should I take lessons from Emily?
As soon as you walk into my studio, you will be instantly included in my flute family! This means that you will be in a supportive environment that promotes quality music making.
Parents will be kept up-to-date on their child’s progress and will also be provided with matierial on how to help their child succeed in music.
I am not only a performer, but strive to be the best teacher I can possibly be. I devote myself to my students and enjoy nothing more than seeing them excel.
For beginning students, I typically start with the Rubank Elementary Method Flute Book by A. C. Peterson. Once the student has progressed and has managed to grasp fundamentals, we can proceed to the next volumes within the same series. For adults, I typically do my best to see what they are interested, and will guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons intriguing. I will typically assign an etude per week to my more advanced students. These etudes are imperative to the student’s growth because they teach techniques. In general, I do my best to make sure lessons are engaging and fun, no matter the ability level of the student.
The most important thing I place emphasis on in my lessons with students is individual growth. All students learn at different paces, and I believe it is important that as a teacher, I set realistic goals with my students at each lesson. When I practice, I tend to keep a journal with me to record what work I practiced that day and how I felt about the work I completed. I highly encourage that my students do the same and keep track of what they are accomplishing. Additionally, I believe acknowledging accomplishments is extremely important and help guide a student’s desire to continue to progress and learn more about their instrument. By learning what motivates the student, I am able to adjust my instruction to their wants and needs in lessons.
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.
