My mission is to guide students towards optimal enjoyment and progress in playing the flute. I strive to understand the strengths, struggles, goals, and interests of the individual and I tailor my instruction to help each student get the most out of lessons. I help you assess your playing to set goals, and I show you practice strategies for reaching them. I teach you not only how to play the notes and rhythms on the page, but also how to play expressively and bring the music to life.

Over the course of lessons, you will learn fundamentals such as tone, tonging, and technique, and also: build confidence by succeeding at difficult things, practice processes that will ultimately allow you to become your own best teacher, learn a lifelong skill that can bring joy to those who hear your music, and have fun!
