About this pro

I LOVE the flute and play all of them  (the piccolo, c flute, alto flute and the bass flute)!  I also direct a flute choir.  My teaching includes all ages.  I have my degree in flute and have been teaching for 44 years.

Teaching others how to play the flute is fun for me--in getting to know others and in seeing them progress in their flute playing.

    This is one of the "most fun" things that I do!!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I check the student's instrument first to make sure there are no leaks or problems.   Then  I listen to her play.  For beginners, we work with the head joint first.  If she can't read  music, we also start there.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA  with specialty in flute.   I have studied privately  with numerous outstanding teachers.  I have played in symphonies ( piccolo}   for 20 years,  in flute choirs (alto and bass flute) for 12 years. Have directed my own flute choir for 19 years.  Have also played solos for various situations.
