Overview:

Hi everyone! I'm Iris, and I am an experienced flute performer and teacher. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, specifically for flute performance, in 2019. I have studied the flute for 12 years and have over 7 years of teaching experience, particularly with beginner and intermediate students. I enjoy working with students of all ages and cater each lesson to the needs/goals of each individual. It is my joy to help others to grow into the best musician they can be!

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began in 2012 as a coach for students auditioning for middle school local honors bands. I have since been consistently teaching students of all ages for both auditions for honors ensembles/competitions and for basic flute training. Consistent practice is always a key focus with all of my students. I find that the best way to motivate students is by helping them the fun in learning! I have personal experience with participating in the various honors ensembles in the Charlotte and NC area, including All-District Band, and NC All-State Band. I look forward to meeting with you!

METHODS USED

For beginner students, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements, since it is commonly the book used in middle school bands. From there, I transition the student to solo repertoire by finding/transcribing music that the student enjoys before introducing appropriate more formal solo repertoire. I also begin teaching students basic music theory and slowly start to introduce more advanced techniques, such as vibrato and double-tonguing. It is also important for me to ask students about their goals and interests when structuring their lesson curriculum!

LESSON STYLE

It is a joy to watch my students find enjoyment in music! I understand that each student progresses at their own rate, so I make it a point to always discuss with my students what their goals and hopes with lessons are. This allows me to tailor my lessons to each student's wants and needs, which in turn helps motivate them to practice and grow in their musicianship. Another important component of teaching is to set realistic goals for my students, both short-term and long-term, to help encourage them.

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.
