I have a huge passion for my students to succeed in whatever category of flute playing they wish to go into. Whether it be adult amateurs, to highschool students auditioning for music programs - I can teach it all. I love to craft lesson plans individually to each student, putting time into considering what will make the student excell.

I have a Masters degree from the University of Southern California in flute performance and have been teaching in since 2013.

I currently hold the Piccolo position in Boise Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Flute II in the American Youth Symphony. I have most recently placed as a semi-finalist with the National Flute Association’s Young Artist competition.

My studio is located in downtown LA Little Tokyo/Arts District. My building has easily accessible parking. Please do not request a lead unless you are willing to commute to DTLA.

I love to see my students thrive! The connection and mentorship I form with each student is extremely fulfilling.

    Sierra makes the flute so much easier to understand and enjoy. Without her lessons I would’ve given up on the flute years ago. Thank you Sierra!

    We have two children currently taking lessons with Sierra for piano. We started out in person, and continued with Zoom during Covid. She has been amazing with our children. Our daughter started with her when she was 5, and now at 6 she continues to progress even on Zoom. Our son who was 7, and now 8, goes above and beyond to show Sierra that hes ready for his next song. Sierra is positive and engages children in ways that enhance each lesson. We highly recommend Sierra to anyone who is looking for an instructor either in person or on Zoom.

    Sierra gives our children a love for music and strong support to learning to play the piano. She has helped them establish a strong foundation in music and technical skills. Both our children look forward to their weekly lessons and have become very attached to Sierra and her kind yet focused teaching style. We highly recommend her.

    I absolutely love taking lessons with Ms. Sierra and would highly recommend her as a teacher. My technique and approach to practicing continues to improve with her detailed and thoughtful guidance. She is very patient and has provided a personalized approach to helping me reach my goals. I feel motivated in my playing, and Ms. Sierra acts as a great example of what I strive to be as a musician.

    Both my eight year-old daughter and I (I’m 41) study flute with Sierra. She is a joy to work with. With my daughter, she is patient and fun, and able to keep her on track despite the fact that my daughter gets easily distracted.
    I am a professional violist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic who decided to learn flute while the orchestra is on hiatus due to covid. I have had many wonderful teachers over a lifetime of music and working with Sierra has been one of my best educational experiences. I have learned to play the flute, but some of her teaching spills over into my viola playing as well. She teaches technicality and musicality in equal measure, which is so important. I highly recommend her!

    My 12 year old daughter has been playing flute with Sierra since she began playing in elementary school, and we are both so happy that she did! Sierra is a master musician who has shaped my daughter’s music interests and ability which continues to grow with Sierras instruction. Sierra both challenges my daughter with the pieces she chooses and also encourages her as she grows her technique, tone and even her posture. In addition to being highly skilled, Sierra serves as a real role model to my daughter. I would highly recommend Sierra to anyone looking to evolve their flute practice at any level.

    Frequently asked questions

    During the first lesson I will assess the level the student is at. From there I discuss with either the student or the parent what books would be the best use for our lessons going forward. I will ask what goals the student has in mind for their flute playing, and help to make a long term plan to reach those. 

    Masters of Music in Flute Performance from the Thronton School, University of Southern California.

    I started teaching through a mentorship program at my undergraduate school where I had specific training in how to teach privately. In Los Angeles I teach at two separate music schools.  

    I have students ranging from brand new never picked up a flute before beginners, all the way to adults who had played flute in their youth and want to pick it up again. I especially love to teach middle school through high school students who have an interest in playing the flute professionally or into college! 

    One of my recent fond memories was the last professional performance I had in 2020. The orchestra I am apart of in Boise Idaho put on a Disney in concert pops performance with vocalists. It was a delight to play all of the Disney classics! 

    I would advise them to look for someone who is willing to listen to their needs and goals, as well as someone who has adequate experience. 

    What would you like to get out of playing the flute? Just for fun or more serious interest? 
    What kind of music would you like to learn to play?
