My Teaching Philosophy

My goal as an instructor is to support my students’ interests by providing them with a strong foundation of flute skills and music theory knowledge. I encourage my students to listen to and seek opportunities to perform music that they enjoy, as my students’ enjoyment in music is definitely a priority in my lessons. I believe in meeting every student where they are in their learning to help effectively guide them to their next level. I encourage students to take on as many musical opportunities as they would like, including youth music programs, honor bands and orchestras, jazz ensembles, pit orchestras, and more.
