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. She is also an active music educator with a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance from Temple University and a Master of Music in Flute Performance from the Royal Irish Academy of Music

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.

    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.

  • Felice Royle

    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!!

  • Victoria Sanchez

    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.

How did you get started teaching?

When I was in High-School I started teaching some Elementary and Middle School students who needed help at the time.


What types of students have you worked with?

Beginner to advanced, all levels and ages welcome!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

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.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

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.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

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.
