flute playing

Ready to take your flute playing to the next level?
You're in the right place. 

Are you tired of not getting the results you want in auditions? Are you frustrated that your fingers sometimes feel like they’re out of control?  Are you ready to start using vibrato and learn double-tonguing but not sure where to begin?

Don't worry,  I’ve been in your shoes and had those same feelings.

I’ll teach you how to prepare for auditions, have better tongue/finger coordination, and new techniques. Plus, you'll learn effective practice strategies and the language of music so you can perform with confidence and effortless ease.  

I’m here to guide you on your journey.

Let's get started

I’m passionate about teaching you the language of music and problem-solving strategies to help you achieve your goals.

How can I help?

My journey began in college when I was a struggling music major. I rushed through fast passages, didn’t get the results I wanted in auditions, and had terrible pitch. Sound familiar?

My approach to playing the flute changed when I learned that music is a language. And, it's the foundation of my teaching.

I’m passionate, and admittedly obsessed, with conquering obstacles on the flute. Everything I share with you in flute lessons, I do in my own daily practice. I’ve literally practiced what I teach.
