Lessons are tailored to each student's needs, as everyone learns differently, and has different strengths and weaknesses. Big components are working on producing a great tone, and developing a solid technique. We will work on a variety of different things, including duets, scales, etudes, and repertoire of different era.
I enjoy helping students reach their goals and discover their love for the flute!
I love my weekly flute lessons!
I've been learning so much from Samantha in my lessons with her. We work on sound, scales, and music, and duets too. I'm excited to go to my lesson every week!
I typically ask a new student to play a piece of music they've been working on so that I can accurately assess the level of their playing. I will then give them a short lesson on what they played to see how receptive they are to my style of teaching. After that, if necessary, I will recommend new books for the student to work on.
I have a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in flute performance and studied with distinguished flutists such as Tara O'Connor and Elizabeth Buck.
My rate is $25 for half hour lessons and $40 for hour lessons in Scottsdale. Additional fees apply for in-home lessons.
I have worked with students of all levels and ages from elementary school to seniors. I enjoy working with students that are motivated to improve, as those students tend to practice outside of their lesson time, which helps the student improve at a quick rate.
