Thank you for visiting my page! My teaching philosophy stems from the fact that I did not have flute lessons until I was serious about music in college. Although I had lessons in what is considered a late time, I was still able to become a successful player. I believe that a student's musical background does not matter as long as they have the drive and ambition to practice and become better musicians. It is never too late to pick up an instrument and learn to play. I consider myself a very patient teacher and I especially enjoy working with beginners.
I also feel that there is much more to learning an instrument than the technical parts. Someone could play a piece technically perfect but if there is no emotion to it, it isn't as pleasant to listen to as someone with musical skill. Going along with that, I think it is important that students get joy from learning, practicing, and performing.
The tools that I give as a teacher are guiding the student to the practice method that works for them, listening to concerns, instilling confidence, and giving honest feedback without being overly critical.
