Flutist with 35 years of experience gives flute lessons in Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area

Methodology

I have taught flute lessons to absolute beginners, as well as students who wanted to major in music. In either case, I have learned that ALL students can learn and thrive when they are exposed to a variety of materials and experiences.

· Playing the flute or any other instrument isn’t just playing the instrument itself, but applying knowledge of music theory, music history, performance skills, and careful listening, among other things.

· If we expect students to do their very best work and achieve great things, they often do!

· There is a big difference between being a flute player and a true musician! We should all strive to be the second one, even if that’s not our career goal.

Background

I teach flute, but more than that, I teach fully integrated musicianship and community building that involves the flute. I teach a full curriculum that blends not just good playing, but music theory (how music is constructed), history, performance skills, and positive social interaction!
