Overview:
I am a graduate student at SUNY Purchase, and will be receiving my Master's degree in Music Performance this spring. I received my Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from SUNY Fredonia in 2016. Throughout my studies, I have been fortunate enough to perform with the Western New York Chamber Orchestra and learn from renowned flutists -- including Gary Schocker, Ian Clarke, and Tara O'Connor (my current teacher). I am relatively new to the Hudson Valley, and I am looking forward to building a studio of passionate and dedicated students in my new home!
EXPERIENCE
My experience with teaching began when I was in high school. I taught two beginner flute students until I went to college in 2012. Since then, I have had students intermittently throughout my studies, and I am looking forward to building a permanent studio in the Hudson Valley. At SUNY Fredonia and SUNY Purchase, I was fortunate enough to take courses which focused on flute pedagogy, and I was able to practice the what I learned with my fellow flutists. These courses, as well as my own personal experience, has given me the skills I need to teach flutists of any skill level and any age.
METHODS USED
In lessons with beginner and intermediate students, I utilize the Rubank method books. Once a student has mastered those, we move onto etude books. I assign scale exercises and repertoire to all of my students, and I like to introduce beginner music theory when appropriate. My students practice duets and sight-reading in lessons with me, and this combination of materials gives the student the most comprehensive learning experience. I also encourage my students to bring any repertoire or music they find on their own to a lesson. I firmly believe that the highest quality of learning happens when a student is enjoying the music they're playing!
LESSON STYLE
I approach teaching with a supportive and open mind. It is important to me that I create a supportive learning environment, while also challenging the student to reach new heights. Every student is different, and every student learns differently; so it is my job to identify a student's learning style and tailor each lesson appropriately. A comfortable and engaging learning environment, in which realistic goals are set, is incredibly important for musical growth. I am there to teach my students, but I also thoroughly enjoy any opportunity to learn from my students as well.

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.
