I think the flute can produce such beautiful and colorful sounds and is a tool for great expression. Therefore, in lessons, covering all the basics of proper tone production, breath support, vibrato, musicality and technique will ensure a solid foundation with which even the highest levels of success can be built upon. I teach these concepts through the use of various exercises, etude/method books, as well as duet books which are incredibly essential for musical development and are also fun!

Michael is great! Very patient and fun! He definitely tailors the lesson to the individual student. We are very grateful for his help with my alto sax-playing son! Thank you, Michael!

Michael is a highly skilled multi instrumentalist. As an adult, I was apprehensive to begin learning an instrument at a beginner level. Michael’s enthusiastic and deliberate approach helped me kickstart my practice and develop a passion for my instrument. He has been careful in adjusting his instruction according to my personal needs and has been flexible in regards to my schedule. Thanks Mike!

Sorcha takes the time to completely understand what you want out of the lessons and how you learn best, then she does a fantastic job of tailoring each practice session to your needs. I love how she observes when you play and catches subtle points to help you improve your performance and get more out of your practice; she really wants to help you learn and enjoy!
She also has great knowledge of various topics in music that you can tap into.

I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 7 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my studentsย€ย™ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for oneย€ย™s creativity.

Roberta was absolutely fantastic with my 7-year-old daughter who decided one day she wanted to learn to play the flute. Keeping a 7-year-old engaged over zoom for a half hour is no small task, but Roberta is enthusiastic, fun, encouraging, and a little silly at just the right moments. She's wonderful and we highly recommend her!

"When I finally decided to follow my dream to learn how to play the flute I knew Ceste would be a wonderful teacher for me. With the exception of singing in church and along with my favorite songs on the radio I had very little experience with anything musical. Ceste was very patient as I learned how to read music accurately and when I didn't practice as much as I should because my job got hectic. Throughout our lessons Ceste was my biggest cheerleader; when I struggled she thought of different ways to explain something to me or searched for a different piece of music to help me reach a different note. Ceste truly cares about her students and seeing them succeed in their musical dreams/goals."

"They say the best teachers never stop learning, and Bill is a perfect example of this. He is a geek for music! And his enthusiasm is infectious.

I played flute a hundred years ago all through my school years. Then I never touched it again. Until recently, when I thought it would be "fun" to pick it up again.
Poor Bill!

But Bill has shown great patience with me and is able to be encouraging while also noting some weaknesses. He's very engaging and upbeat and makes every lesson fun. He has also taken me to see professional flautists perform, and he has recommended some great books on music and flute.
