“I welcome all ages of students, from 9 years through adult, and all levels of ability. Previous musical experience is very helpful, but not necessary. Students must be willing to practice daily, be committed to learning, and demonstrate enthusiasm for the flute. It is my desire to awaken the joy of music in my students, instill in them a solid musical foundation by teaching the classical flute repertoire, and encourage them to develop the skills to play the flute well and confidently, and to have fun in the process.”
