It's a fact that studying music can improve your life!
By choosing to study flute, you are making a decision that will positively affect your musicianship and enjoyment of music for years to come!
I truly believe that my students should approach performance with an deeper understanding of music. Thus, I like to integrate historical background and context, composer biographical information, techniques appropriate to period, and more. I also teach critical thinking approaches, which enable my students to think on their own and develop a more meaningful connection with the music.
I have worked with students of all ages (adult students included!), beginners through advanced, and everything in between. I am excited to work with you to help you develop your skills and grow as a musician. I am happy to help with preparations for solo and ensemble, college auditions, and much more! Lessons will be developed with each student, tailored to suit their individual needs.
For more information about me, please read my bio section on this site. You may also hear recordings of my playing under the "Recordings" tab.

Lessons may be purchased in half hour OR hour increments. Payments may be made for the entire month at the first lesson of the month. Monthly fee is determined by how many lessons are planned for the month. Weekly lessons are recommended for consistency in musical development. Rates are as follows:
If student needs to miss a lesson: Please notify me as soon as possible and we will reschedule. If rescheduling is not possible, the fee for the missed lesson will be credited toward the next month.
If the student is a "no-show": Lesson fees will still be applied to the missed lesson and will not be credited toward the next month. If you must miss, the best policy is to let me know!
