  • 1. Learners will improve their tone production and sound on the flute through embouchure and aperture refinement, stability exercises and eventually through advanced playing techniques such as vibrato exercises, buzzing, and harmonics. 2. Learners will develop their breath support using diaphragmatic intercostal breathing techniques and finger breath exercises to sustain their flute sound. 3. Learners will develop consistent and effective practice routines that aligns with their schedules and lifestyle. 4. Learners will develop relaxed and tension-free playing technique through refinement of posture and hand positioning. 5. Learners will develop strategies for playing technical passages cleanly with correct fingerings and intonation. 6. Learners will strengthen their musical literacy and sight-reading abilities. They will receive instruction in reading rhythms and notation, as well as grasping essential music theory concepts. 7. Learners will develop self-assuredness and expressiveness in their performance skills, enhancing their ability to convey emotion and musicality through their flute playing.
As your teacher, I bring over two decades of professional flute-playing experience to our private lessons. I obtained my B.A. in music education from Kean University and have my standard license in K-12 music education. For the past decade, I have dedicated myself to teaching music, both within public school systems and through private instruction.

Throughout my teaching career, I have had the privilege of directing various ensembles, including school bands. This experience has provided me with insights into the curricula and requirements essential for young musicians to excel. Additionally, I am well-versed in preparing students for auditions, helping them secure solos and placement in advanced ensembles. My mission is to empower learners with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive!

In our lessons, we will occasionally explore flute playing techniques that have been popularized by flute pedagogue Keith Underwood, including finger breaths and buzzing exercises. The employment of these techniques contribute to the enhancement of stability and tone quality in flute playing.
