MKE, WI flutist with 15 years of experience, teaching all age levels.

Methodology

Each lesson I teach is catered to the individual, depending on age, experience and personal strengths. If a student is a beginner, our first lesson will focus on instrument care, assembly, and making their first sound on the headjoint. If a student has previous experience, our first lesson will include bringing in material they love to play, and setting goals based on their current ability level. General teaching philosophies and techniques I adhere to include scaffolding, spiral curriculum, and sound before sight for beginner flutists. Healthy practice is essential to my approach to teaching flute, so we will regularly talk about breathing, muscle relaxation, and body alignment. We will also regularly address smart practice habits by maintaining a weekly practice journal.

Background

Jennifer Rodriguez is a flutist and educator with administrative experience working for Classical Music Indy, and previous intern for Chicago’s Fifth House Ensemble. Jennifer is currently pursuing her MM in Flute Performance at UW-Milwaukee, studying with Dr. Jennifer Clippert. Previous flute teachers include Dr. Mihoko Watanabe (Ball State University), Melissa Ngan, and Scott Metlicka.
