Sometimes practicing feels like running in place. Whether it is lack of inspiration or playing music you just aren't that interested in, weekly lessons can help! In my studio, I will equip you with music you will love and exercises that give you a sense of accomplishment as you hear your improvement. With a new sense of motivation, practice can be the time you look forward to each day. I know that everyone has their own unique learning process, so let's work together to find the best way for you to accomplish your goals!

learning is lifelong
I have been fortunate to have four teachers model for me the most important aspects of teaching. Each one met me where I was in my maturity as a person and musician. They embodied what it meant to have the trust of their students and the understanding that the learning process is lifelong. I hope that I can follow their lead in a new generation of teachers fostering the new generation of students.
Musical learning cannot be summed up in a checklist or a single end goal. It is only natural to become frustrated when practicing feels like running in place. Out of that frustration has emerged in me a passion to build a safe and encouraging environment for my students; to provide a relationship that allows students to ask questions and share doubt and a studio community that builds one another up in confidence. It is my hope that my students can become competent flutists, and that their musical experience builds up their self-worth and that they will feel known by myself and their peers.
Each student is unique. I hope to provide them with a safe environment suitable to their learning process. I will be open for communication about each student’s experience and ways that I can improve as well. The wellbeing of the student is priority. Each will learn at their own pace and in their own way; it is my job to provide them with what they need in order to succeed.
Most importantly, I expect my students to take control of their own learning when they leave each lesson. I expect them to be active in their own development - to ask questions, communicate their frustrations, and engage in the process. The only way to see success from private lessons is to be dedicated and give 100%, just as I will always give my best effort as their teacher.
