Option 1: In-Person Lessons

For In-person lessons, I follow current CDC guidelines regarding Covid-19 safety recommendations.

I'm fully vaccinated, so no masks will be required for in-person lessons! However, for safety purposes, there are a few conditions we need to observe:

         For the time being, only students will be admitted inside the studio for lessons. 

        Students are asked to please use hand sanitizer before entering the studio. My studio is also equipped with an air purifier, and we maintain a reasonable distance.

 

       If the student is sick, i.e. exhibiting symptoms, the lesson will automatically be moved online or rescheduled to a later date. The same policy will apply if I'm sick.

Curious about in-person lessons? Please send inquiries through the Contact Form.

Option 2: Virtual Lessons

Virtual lessons are available as an alternative to in-person lessons for those who prefer it for convenience. Virtual lessons are scheduled within the regular studio schedule. They are also a great option for rescheduling in-person lessons due to illness or inclement weather. 

Online lesson platforms: Zoom, Skype, and Google Duo. For more information about online flute lessons, please read:

Scheduling Flute Lessons

I offer 30-minute and 45-minute weekly flute lessons (see below for recommendations). Whatever the student's skill level, a weekly private lesson provides individual attention that helps the student to advance more quickly. Studying weekly with a flute specialist gives the student more in-depth instruction on skills unique to the flute, i.e. vibrato, articulation, and alternate fingerings. I'm happy to schedule a trial lesson with your student! Please contact me for availability, pricing, and to schedule a trial lesson.

30-minute Flute Lessons

Weekly 30-minute lessons are best for beginners -- students who have played

1-2 years.  Weekly lessons provide continuity, help students retain what they are learning in band, reinforce new concepts, and prevent bad habits from taking hold. 

45-minute Flute Lessons

Weekly 45-minute lessons are highly recommended for more advanced students

-- 8th-grade and up -- who are preparing auditions or need more of a challenge. Students get more in-depth instruction on advanced concepts, i.e. vibrato, articulation styles, and musicality. Plus, the longer lesson allows more personal coaching time for upcoming district, state, or college auditions and solo/ensemble festivals.
