For those new to the flute, I focus on presenting material clearly, but in a fun manner. The pace can vary (fast and forward moving or relaxed and laid back) depending upon the goals of the individual. Flute mechanics, balance, air support/breathing, note reading, rhythm, tone, articulation, phrasing, and more are introduced and developed over time. Repertoire and lesson studies may vary and are tailored to meet the needs of each flutist.
For those coming back to the flute after several years of inactivity, I like to work at your pace, especially if you have a full time job and lots of excitement at home!
For advanced flutists, I am available for audition preparation coaching as well as being another ear if you have recitals or master classes in the near future.
I also coach piccolo, alto, and bass flutes, and beginning ryuteki (Japanese dragon flute).
