I encourage my students of all ages and levels to develop informed and meaningful interpretations of the music that we study through personal connections, historical context, and musical analysis. I believe that thinking critically about how to present works of music to audiences not only ensures impactful performances, but can also transform a performer's perspective and enhance the learning process. I also advocate for beginning to learn contemporary techniques from the earliest stages of practice: learning these techniques is rewarding on its own, but also helps to refine traditional flute-playing.
I have experience teaching students of a wide range of ages and musical backgrounds, and am currently accepting new private students—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 teach through Ensemble Connect at P.S. 200 Benson in Brooklyn. Previously I have served as a teaching artist in New Haven through the Yale Music in Schools Initiative.
I believe strongly in helping audiences find meaningful musical connections, and have experience crafting and presenting interactive solo and chamber music performances for audiences from schools and community venues to Carnegie Hall.
