My teaching style is a holistic approach that encompasses effective practicing methods as well as a focus on mental health and healthy thinking patterns. I like to emphasize HOW to practice, rather than just what to practice, so that my students can take my words and apply them at home.
I have been teaching flute for 6 years and I'm passionate about creating a warm, effective environment for all different students to grow and thrive. I graduated with my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Delaware in 2018, and finished my Master of Music in Flute Performance at The Hartt School in 2020.
Ali excels at tailoring lessons to the individual. She distills complex musical concepts into bite-size pieces, works on the basics but also finds music that is fun and pretty to play. She has a way of keeping my enjoyment and self-confidence at the center and she adapts her style to my musical, personal and logistical needs on any given week. I noticed that Ali’s focus on a patient and generous attitude towards myself carried over into other areas of my life. The experience has been unequivocally positive and I recommend her to anyone.
My daughter has been taking flute lessons with Ali for about a year now; during that time, she has made significant improvements in her flute playing and most of all, enjoys every minute of her weekly lesson with Ali! Ali is kind, supportive and provides excellent instruction to my daughter to keep her engaged and to help her progress. Ali has gone above and beyond this year to be flexible in her scheduling and immensely positive in her instruction (and guidance for practicing) to allow for our daughter to remain highly enthusiastic about flute. We couldn’t ask for a better teacher in Ali!
Ali had been teaching piano to our sons, mostly remotely now, for over two years. She is the best teacher we have had and my children adore her. She is very clear with instruction and well organized. She puts a lot of thought in finding music that will not only help her students progress, but also music they enjoy. She knows her students well and she clearly enjoys teaching. Ali is a dynamic, positive, invested, and very fun music teacher; we think the world of her.
Her extensive knowledge and gentle, encouraging guidance make each lesson pleasurable. She's taught me a lot about music, practicing, and being patient with myself as I learn. I would highly recommend her!
