Teaching Studio

**Every student should have a metronome.** 
The teaching studio is flexible and adult students are encouraged.  Lessons can be weekly, short term, or as needed.  My goal is to help students become as independent as possible.  We will discuss practice techniques and available resources.  Duets are an important part of my process.  They teach steadiness and listening in a way solo practice never will. 

For flute lessons, we can start with any method book(s) you own and build from there.  Each program of study will be tailored to the student's needs and goals.  This can mean band music, audition preparation, or simply music for fun.  Tin Whistle lessons have no required text, but recommendations are available.
