Personal Statement

I offer flute lessons for students of all levels, ages 8 through adult. My students come from the Greater Boston area, including Medford, Cambridge, Boston, Somerville, Winchester and Arlington to take lessons at my comfortable studio in Medford, MA.

My goal as a teacher is to provide students with the tools needed to be a complete musician. I encourage students to think critically, develop problem solving skills and to find their musical voice by learning to execute their own ideas to the fullest. Areas of emphasis include phrasing, tone color, effective practice strategies and the healthy use of body movement in the development of breath control and technique. Lesson materials are chosen and tailored to suit each students needs and interests. By holding students to high standards and offering a supportive learning environment, I strive to provide students with the best learning experience possible.

I believe that the best educators teach their students how to become their own instructor. The study of music is a lifelong process and I aspire to guide my students to develop the tools necessary in order to problem solve, make informed decisions and to always reach for the next step in their musical development. Through actively creating and learning, they are able to effectively communicate ideas, images and stories through music.
