Overview:

I am a fun and energetic instructor who enjoys sharing my musical knowledge and pushing my students to challenge themselves. I have a Bachelor of Music as well as two Masters of Music, one in orchestral flute performance and the other specializing in contemporary performance. I enjoy many genres of music and have performed in Cabaret, jazz bands, marching bands, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and more. I have toured all over the world as a performer including Italy, Sweden, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand. I am currently the flutist of Ensemble Mise-en, a Brooklyn based contemporary chamber ensemble, and own a coffee shop in uptown Manhattan.

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching private flute lessons since 2007. My studio consists of all ages and skill levels. I tailor my lesson plans to individual students' skill level and goals. I enjoy exploring differing teaching methods and am always looking for new and better ways to help my students. I have taught many beginner flutist and helped them be successful on their journey with the flute. I also have many adult students looking to pick the flute up after many years or begin for the first time. I love exploring the flute with them and helping them reach their goals. I am uniquely qualified to help my students explore sound outside of the traditional classical sound, and I love to introduce them to twentieth century avant-guard compositions.

METHODS USED

The most difficult skill for beginner flutists is sound production. For beginning students we will focus the first couple weeks primarily on making a sound and forming the correct embouchure, or lip position. We learn simple tunes by ear during this time and begin to associate them with musical notation. Once a good understanding of sound production is achieved we begin to broaden the range and learn new notes. Repertoire will depend on skill level and the amount of practice time that a student devotes to the flute. My students progress quickly and gain knowledge of not only the flute, but also music theory, history, and performance practice.

LESSON STYLE

Each student has a unique learning style, and I strive to adapt my teaching style to be as effective as possible. The best teacher will teach their student how to teach themselves and how to critically listen to their playing. The most significant thing to know about my teaching style is that we will continually discuss methods of practice and the reasons behind what we are learning. I help my students to set realistic short term and long term goals and give them the tools to reach those goals.

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.
