My students, both online and in-person participate in two recitals a year. Their growth is outstanding. Contact me if you would like a link to videos of past recitals.
My students learn to play in tune, with great technique, beautiful tone and bring joy and expression into every phrase they play. I love hearing their growth and exploring all kinds of music from Classical to Brazilian and Jazz with them.
Rebecca knows each one of her students and what kind of support they need. Always supportive, kind and encouraging, Rebecca believes in each of her students and helps them believe in themselves. Rebecca goes out of her way to pair professional musicians with students, especially at recitals, and offers students the important experience of playing with others. I highly recommend Rebecca, a brilliant professional flutist passionate about playing music and teaching it.
Following a 30-year absence from playing, Rebecca rekindled my passion for flute and advanced my skills rapidly over three years. She tailored her approach to my learning style, interests, and evolving goals. Being Rebecca's student has been very satisfying and enjoyable!
I find out what type of music they want to learn, their personal goals, then begin building or rebuilding technique from the ground up. We study technique in service of music, and move towards their goals in a systematic, and fun way.
