Overview:
I feel so lucky to have the life I currently have, with a fulfilling and vibrant life as a professional flutist. In a typical month, I enjoy teaching full time in the school districts surrounding Austin, mixed with a little performing! My current performances include playing with the San Antonio Symphony and playing for the elderly in retirement homes. My performance career so far has taken me to music festivals in Canada, Italy, and throughout the United States. I have performed with numerous orchestras, given recitals in churches and nursing homes, been in music videos and on various CDs; you name it! I grew up in a musical world where I was often told how rare it was to have a successful career as a musician. Instead of listening to that, I decided to make my OWN career. Most of my musical opportunities have come from myself arranging them, and I have many tools to share with my students on how to create your own career in music.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience began back in High School, where I was chosen to be the Flute Section Leader in the Marching Band for my last two years. I also helped direct the Flute Choir in High School. During my Undergraduate Degree in Pittsburgh, I had a few private students and led a flute sectional at one of the local High Schools. When I moved to IU, a colleague of mine gave me a few of her students, and I was also hired at a local music shop, where I started to also teach beginning piano. Now I teach about 35 students during the school days in Round Rock, Cedar Park, and Austin. Our lessons include site reading, scales and technique, mock auditions, listening projects, learning about music theory and the history od the flute, and much more! I strive to keep students interested and passionate about music by sharing my passionate and all the things I have learned throughout my colorful career as a musician.
METHODS USED
For beginning flute students, I begin by demonstrating the beautiful sound that the flute can make, either by CD or myself playing. I go over the basic idea, teach them how to put it together, and then we work on making a sound out of the headjoint. For preteens, I like to ask what type of music they like, and we will find a book that interests them if they find classical music a little 'boring' right now. With High School students, especially those wanting to major in music, I focus a lot on fundamentals, etudes, and the standard repertoire. We always have fun in a positive environment, no matter what the talent or skill level.
LESSON STYLE
I encourage students who would like to pursue music to enter in competitions. This way, they aren't just mindlessly practicing for no goal. This gives them something to work towards. I always praise a student when they have finally corrected a bad habit or a passage that has been difficult for a long time. I find this really helpful, instead of being irritated or upset with the student if they can't quite get a passage right. Everyone learns at their own pace, and natural talent comes in many different levels.
