Overview:
I am a lover of sharing music with students and fellow musicians. I have been playing for more than 30 years and have been teaching flute either privately or as adjunct faculty for over 15 years. I studied flute at a performing arts high school and at Arkansas State under Joe Bonner. I currently am keeping my hand in orchestral performance in the NIH Community Orchestra on bassoon and am also performing as a flute soloist at different venues. I excel in the classical music genre and am currently working on my 20th Century music skills. The Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras are my specialties.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching since my undergrad years starting in 2001 as adjunct faculty at Walnut Ridge Elementary School until 2004. Since then I have taught privately at students homes part time. I believe that weekly lessons are the most beneficial for a students learning and productivity. I also believe that a combination of encouragement, praise, and level appropriate music, be it classical, method books, or popular music are imperative for success in learning music and enjoying it. I also teach age appropriate music theory in my lessons as this is just as important as the music. With the learning of theory comes a greater understanding of the music being learned and makes the student able to better interpret music on their own.
METHODS USED
For younger beginning student I prefer to use Essential Elements for a good foundation. For older beginners I prefer the Rubank Method. Once the basics are grasped I add in level appropriate solo music. As the students progress I move either into the Rubank Method for younger students or the Trevor Wye method for the older students. I also like to utilize duets and other ensemble pieces if I have multiple students. I like for my students to keep a practice journal so that they can see their progress and I can see the areas that the students need to work on. I encourage questions and individuality in the lessons for my students.
LESSON STYLE
I believe that students excel in an encouraging and praise filled environment. I also believe that students should be taught how to practice so that they can excel. I tailor each lesson according to the students needs and do my best to instill in them a love for Music. If a student is getting frustrated I am not afraid of taking a break and working on something fun that engages the student. I love to see students learning to love music and try to make sure that every lesson has an element of fun and praise in 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.
