I started teaching private flute lessons when I was 13, and I have maintained a flute studio in each city I’ve lived in – 7 cities in 5 states! By teaching a student how to practice and self-assess, I put them in charge of their own learning. I ♥️ FLUTE.
I began teaching music theory at South Miami Senior High in 2000 (beginning, intermediate, Advanced Placement levels). From 2003-2006 I was a Teaching Assistant for Musica Practica and Aural Skills courses at UW-Madison. Since then, I have taught music theory and aural skills at WCATY, UWW Flute Camp, Madison College, and Edgewood College.
I have openings for new students!
Lessons are offered online via WebEx or Zoom. Please email me to schedule a free 10-minute consultation to discuss your learning needs.
All ages and all levels are welcome and encouraged! I would love to teach you!
