I love playing the flute and by teaching I simply want to pass this joy of learning and playing music to my students.
Good musicianship is based on having a solid grasp of the fundamentals of rhythm, intonation, articulation and tone. I teach fundamentals in a fun way, geared towards a student's personal goals, playing level, learning style and interests.
It is incredibly important to make sure that students feel a sense of progress and accomplishment throughout their lessons. By helping the student tackle short term as well as long term goals, a clear sense of accomplishment and progress is assured.
By making lessons and practice an enjoyable experience a student is able to progress and achieve excellence in music as well as develop confidence in their personal abilities.
