Overview:
My name is Megan. I was born on Long Island in New York and then lived most of my adult live in New York City. I have been playing the flute since I was 8 years old, which gives me over 25 years playing and performance experience. I have performed in many ensembles and have also performed solo. I play piccolo and sing as well. I am a life long learner and I try to instill this in all of my students. I am also a NYSSMA Adjudicator so I know the importance of preparing your children for the perfect NYSSMA performance. It is my goal to create a safe and fun learning environment for all of my students!
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching private flute lessons when I was in high school to younger students in the Amityville school district, Amityville, NY. Once I began student teaching on Long Island, I began building a small studio of flute students. I then moved to NYC where I taught in the NYC public school system for 9 years teaching 6-12 grade. In that time, I started the music program at my school where I built 5 choruses, an orchestra, recorder class, a Broadway appreciation class, a step team and completed numerous other tasks. During my 9 years in NYC, I also tutored special education students and taught private flute lessons. I have worked with students of all ages and abilities, from 8 year olds to 38 year olds; from beginners to students who need "flute therapy".  
METHODS USED
When teaching, I start all of my students from the beginning, even if they have experience. The more the student already knows, the quicker we can move. It is extremely important to make sure each student has an very strong foundation and is comfortable with the basics of flute playing. Examples are finger and hand positioning, posture, etc. The language of music theory is used in all lessons as a tool for learning. Each student is different and has different needs- the methods I use differentiate based on the student. 
LESSON STYLE
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! It 's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. I prefer one on one lesson time. Parents are welcome to stay and watch if they'd like. I don't have a particular style. As previously mentioned, each lesson is based on the students needs. Praise and honesty are always incorporated into each lesson. But at the end of the day, I want each student to feel inspired.

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.
