Flute And Piano Lessons With Klodina
My lessons allows students to thrive in the enjoyable teaching environment I create. Not only do the students develop their skills through the professional advice as a flute teacher with more than 25 years of teaching experience but I also encourage to show their creativity and their own artistic character by choosing the music that they love.
Nothing makes me happier than being able to teach students and help them become better at playing the flute and understanding the music they are spreading to others. I love helping my students achieve more and iinspiring and stimulating them to become better musicians through regular practice and a sense of independence. My goal has always been to be a facilitator in my students’ journeys to success and hopefully to encourage them to fall in love with the flute just like I did at a very young age.
