I accept private flute students of any age and musical background—contact me for scheduling, rates, and references. I'm happy to offer all prospective students a free 30-minute trial lesson.

In addition to maintaining a private studio in the New York and New Haven areas, I am proud to partner with P.S. 200 in Brooklyn as a teaching artist. Previously I have served as a teaching artist in New Haven, CT through the Yale Music in Schools Initiative.

Teaching Philosophy

I encourage my students of all levels to delve deeply into the music that we study to develop informed and meaningful interpretations. I believe that thinking critically about how to present a work of music to an audience not only ensures an impactful performance, but can also transform a performer's perspective and assist in the learning process.
