Each student, no matter what their age, has something that has motivated them to choose to study flute. Exploring each person’s goals in creative ways is what makes teaching rewarding for me and both challenging and enjoyable for the student.
We explore musicianship, tone and technique in each lesson. Students learn both solo and ensemble literature and have opportunities for public performance.
When I play, I hope that each audience member has their own individual reaction to my performance. It should inspire each listener differently: challenging some, relaxing others, causing each to think about something that is personal and emotional.
