I have been teaching flute, piccolo, and chamber music lessons for 10+ years. I work with students of all ages and ability levels from all over the country. I teach in-person in Glenside, PA or online via Zoom. Whether you are just picking up a flute for the first time, or are taking your flute out of the case after 20 years I'm here to guide you along your musical journey!
Faith Wasson is an award winning Philadelphia area flutist with experience in solo, chamber, and orchestral work.

I love teaching and seeing the love of music grow in my students!
I also enjoy helping students acheive their goals in learning new pieces, winning auditions, and getting into college.

Faith is kind, patient, knowledgeable and professional.
Working with Faith is an absolute pleasure! She is professional, patient, and very knowledgeable about her instrument. As a teacher myself who wanted to improve my woodwind doubling, I left every lesson with my questions answered and with a desire to take my flute playing to the next level.
Faith is fantastic! Just in a few lessons, I've improved my tone and worked on my weak vibrato and she even did research on helping me decide on a new flute. She is super professional, fun, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!!
I like how Ms.Wasson takes the time to thoroughly explain each piece that we learn such as the history of the composer and the music theory involved in each piece. She is also a very patient teacher who answers all of my questions and helps me work through any parts of the lesson that I find difficult.
Typically we set up a first lesson and I ask them to play anything they have for me. We work through that and then establish a routine of scales and exercises, etudes, solo repertoire, and a piece for fun!

When I was in High-School I started teaching some Elementary and Middle School students who needed help at the time.
Beginner to advanced, all levels and ages welcome!
I've recently been enjoying working with my chamber music groups and seeing them perform for competitions and recitals!
Example: Flute, violin, piano trio playing Suite by Mel Bonis for Tri-M Music Society Induction ceremony.
You may be nervous at your first lesson but don't be! You should get along well with your teacher, make your goals known. If you still don't think it's a good fit after the first 4 lessons, don't be afraid to try someone else.
The main thing is to tell the teacher your goals. If you have a specific song in mind to learn, bring it to class! If you are an adult amateur and don't have much time to practice, make that known right away. Make sure your priorities are out on the floor from day 1.
