Overview:

I am a passionate and dedicated musician, and I love teaching flute players of all levels and ages. I received my master's degree in flute performance from Shenandoah Conservatory in May of 2020 where I studied with internationally renowned flutist, Jonathan Snowden. I'm from Virginia, but currently reside in Columbus, Nebraska, where I spend my time practicing, teaching, and working part-time as volunteer coordinator for CCC Adult Education. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my partner, Anthony, our two parakeets, two guinea pigs, two rabbits, and our cat, Nadia.

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching music in earnest in some capacity for the past five years. I worked as the music intern for a church where I would lead choir warmups and rehearsals, and from there I got my first flute student - a lovely soprano who was roughly 70 years young and had played flute in her high school days. I've assisted with high school and middle school band classes, and have worked as the flute technician for marching band camps. By working with such a wide variety of ages, levels, and personalities, I've learned to cater my teaching style to the individual that I am working with. I view lessons as a collaboration between student and teacher, and do my best to take each student's life experience, learning style, and music preferences into consideration as we approach each lesson.

METHODS USED

I do my best to meet a student where they are, find out their interests and what practice routine their schedules allow for, and then go from there to create a custom plan for them. Regardless of their level and goals, however, students are always reminded that scales and practice are some of the best tools for success. A strong emphasis is placed on honing listening skills, as well, as this benefits students in both their ensemble and solo playing. Students are encouraged to learn the background of the music that they are playing, as this creates a deeper understanding and appreciation for what they are learning.

LESSON STYLE

I will always do my best to meet each lesson with enthusiasm, understanding, and good humor. As I previously noted, I believe that it is very important to take into account who a student is as an individual when structuring a lesson - but, regardless of age or level, I strive to make sure that lessons are a pleasure rather than a chore for the student and that they walk away from a lesson feeling like they have the tools they need to succeed. I work to make lessons a balance between structure, exploration, guidance, and sheer joy and love for music.

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.
