My name is Susan Clark, and I live in Antioch, CA. I have taught private flute lessons for over 30 years, and have a flute studio in my home. I have a Flute Performance degree from Lamont School of Music, Univ. of Denver. Currently I play principal flute in the Diablo Symphony (Walnut Creek, CA) and perform in various venues throughout the Bay Area.
My goal for my students is to enjoy music through playing the flute better. I offer instruction in both flute and piccolo performance, including technic, theory, solos, duets, and competitions (if desired).
I accept students from beginning through advanced levels, and all ages ... even adults.
helping students enjoy the flute by playing better
Excellent knowledgeable teacher.My daughter loves the lessons and says “Mrs.Clark is the perfect balance of kindness and strictness”
basic instruction in how to put a flute together, clean a flute properly, hold a flute.
First and foremost, checking the student's flute to see if it is in playing condition. I also offer my services when choosing to purchase a flute - help with where to purchase and guidance to the flute that will suit the student best.
