BM, Georgia State University, Flute Performance
Music is best when shared, and teaching others to love to play the flute as much as I do is the greatest joy! I graduated from Georgia State University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance. I was able to perform a wide variety of music with many diverse groups of musicians, all while learning about education and how to teach others. One of my favorite things is collaborating with composers to create new music. I still enjoy performing with local wind ensembles and chamber musicians today.
I have had the privilege of teaching private lessons for 5 years. My teaching began with working at marching band summer camps and demonstrating the flute to new band students and has evolved into the studio I have today. I enjoy working directly with schools to provide students with the easiest access to lessons. Regular practice is the best motivator, because when you practice, you will see results! We can work together to find the perfect goals for you, whether it is to play in a recital, audition for All State, or learn that piece you have always loved. The flute is an incredibly fun instrument that can play so many different styles of music, and I strive to bring that fun and excitement to every lesson!
For beginning students, I recommend Rubank Elementary Method. This will be supplemented by a strong foundation in vital fundamentals. No prior music experience is necessary: we will learn about reading music, music theory, and music history. I introduce students to short duets very early, as it makes a student feel confident in their ability to make a beautiful sound. Solo repertoire will be added as the student understands the fundamentals of the instrument. As students progress, I add etudes, scales, and technique exercises that always keep the student moving forward. There are so many fun styles of music to play, and I make sure the student always has a choice in deciding the music they play!
The moment of accomplishment when a student learns a new note or a new piece is what motivates both teachers and students! The most important thing is for the student to feel successful, no matter their goals or skill level. I think it is very important to celebrate the accomplishments along the way, and I often incorporate weekly games or challenges to motivate practicing. My instruction is unique to every student's needs, as every student grows in different ways. My goal is to help all my students become confident musicians who enjoy all the wonderful benefits of playing an instrument.
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
