Get to know Sharon Hudak

Sharon Hudak teaches all students of any age and ambition to fall in love with music making – for life!  She has taught piano and flute lessons for over twenty years and still enthusiastically learns something new every day from her students and through professional development.  Ms. Sharon was an active amateur musician for many years before completing her formal music education with a master’s degree specializing in music pedagogy (individual teaching). As such, she can relate to those who may be struggling or who have struggled in the past and need detailed analysis to break through any issues. Since moving to North Texas in 2001 besides being an instructor, Sharon has been a free-lance, orchestral, and liturgical flutist.  She has also served as a UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest and church children’s choir piano accompanist. She and her students have won multiple awards from the Texas Flute Society, Texas Music Teachers Association, Plano Music Teachers Association, and Texas UIL. Her instructors include Dr. Pamela Youngblood and Dr. Terri Sanchez: noted flute pedagogues. While originally classically and liturgically trained, Ms. Sharon enjoys teaching and learning music from many different cultures and styles including Latin, pop, movie and theater, and some jazz. She is always excited to help her students learn and explore music of any ethnicity.
