Learning to play a musical instrument provides a safe space to develop indispensable personal qualities. Here are some of my favorites to highlight in flute lessons.

Self acceptance Loving yourself exactly where you are in the journey.
Patience Allowing skills to unfold with diligent attention in their own time.
Discipline Choosing to do the right thing, even when the wrong thing is easier.
Confidence Whether you think you can, or you can’t, you are right! Henry Ford.
Perseverance Discovering that you can overcome even intimidating challenges with effort.

I deliver a solid foundation of the physical, intellectual, and emotional components of music making to my students. In addition to effective techniques for playing the flute, and explorations of it’s vast repertoire, my curriculum includes fundamentals of music theory, and aural skills. Whether you’re studying as a hobby, extracurricular activity, or to be a pro one day, you too can play the flute!
