My Musical Education Background
I have a Bachelor of Music in flute performance with a keyboard minor from Illinois Wesleyan University and a Master of Music in flute performance from DePaul University.
My instructors include the world-renown flutist, William Bennett (Royal Academy of Music, London Symphony Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra and Academy of St. Martin in the Field), Mary Stolper, Victoria Jicha and Joan Marie Bauman.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I teach classical musical instruction and performing on both flute and piano. I play the piccolo in the symphony, so that is also an area of focus as well. I coach musicians on stage presence and teach music theory and music history.
My lesson rates are an all-inclusive monthly tuition (including accompanists, recitals, recital tickets, parties, incentives...) which ranges between $122 per month - $140 per month for a 30-min lesson. The only additional fees would be for sheet music.
Ages / Skill Levels Taught
I teach students from 4 years of age and up including adult students. All levels of experience.
My Musical Influences
All of my teachers and colleagues have had a positive influence in my musical (and personal) life. All of my private teachers have been a tremendous influence both musically and their generosity of of time and talents. My colleagues in the symphony have all shaped my musical interpretations as well. If I had to single out one person, it would probably be William Bennett (AKA WIBB) who has had an incredible influence on my as a performer, teacher and compassionate and passionate person. He is an incredible musician and human being and I am grateful for all of the time we have had together.
My students have all influenced me as well, perhaps more personally than musically. Being a music teacher, I have had the great privilege of teaching many students from their young childhood through college and still have the huge pleasure of their visits upon returning home for a time. I am so very proud of ALL of them!
