Bachelor of Music in Flute
Master of Music in Flute
I am an experienced teacher of flute, having taught countless students in a wide age range, and from beginners to college to semi-professional. I enjoy starting students who are just beginning, and I have become known as the go-to teacher for adults of all levels. I love teaching, love music, and the combination is dynamite. I have an uncanny ability to home in on the students' difficulties and perceptions, and am very gratified to be able to help them play to the best of their ability. I teach so they truly understand what they are playing - not just copy or play by rote.
I started teaching when I was 16. I have taught small classes and private lessons for many years. I have developed a methodical system so that all aspects of flute playing are covered in a practical way that shows results from the first lesson. I teach so the student truly understand what they are playing - not just copying or playing by rote. I play for and with the student in duets so that the student can hear and be inspired by a beautiful sound and emulate it,. We play real music together so that inspiration might happen
I have developed my own system and materials for introducing the fingerings and reading music in a methodical way. I write my own simple exercises and songs. I use the Wagner book and a duet book, and appropriate solos depending on the interests of the student. I customize the lessons and go where the student's needs and interests are. Popular songs can be good as solos, and some studnets really enjoy playing Handel, Telemann, and Bach. I have studied with some of the great flutists and incorporate their wisdom for my students.
I believe that music is a gift to humanity. A person may be more or less "talented," but that isn't important to their enjoyment of music. I have a passion for music, having devoted my working life to it, and I can't help but convey and share that. I help students play as well as they can but even more important, listen to and enjoy what they are playing and hearing. So that , no matter if they play for one year or the rest of their lives, they have an enhanced ability to listen, communicate through music, and enjoy it.
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
