Fall 2020 Update
A limited number of spots are open for my Fall 2020 teaching schedule.
I'm planning to offer virtual flute lessons and a limited number of in-person lessons as long as appropriate safety measures are taken. This includes keeping 12+ feet distance, wearing a mask and plastic face shield, and installing a plastic barrier between myself and the students.
I am developing a semester-long virtual lesson plan for students at all levels to ensure that students can still make good progress given the limitations of virtual learning.
My studio is located off Poplar and I-240 but I will also be offering lessons at some students' homes if proper social distancing can be maintained. Outside lessons are also an option, weather permitting, of course.
* If I do have a few in-person students, I will regularly be tested for the virus and not meet in person if there is the slightest chance I may have been exposed.
My teaching studio is open to students of all ages and levels, from beginning students to students looking to pursue a career in music. I believe that learning a musical instrument is a wonderful thing to do at any age. Studying music and learning to play an instrument is not only fun, but can also promote the development of many important life skills such as patience, problem-solving, discipline, concentration, and good communication skills.
In lessons, students will focus on developing good tone, technique, and musicality through exercises, etudes, and the flute repertoire. Students will also learn about other aspects of music, such as music theory and music history, so that they may develop a more thorough understanding of music. It is my goal to help my students reach their highest potential as flutists and musicians, whether their goals are to make the top honor band, to earn a music scholarship for college, to move up three chairs in their school band, or to learn the flute later in life as way to enjoy music in their everyday lives.
