Tin Whistles - How does your garden grow?
Anne McKennon
Teaching Studio

E-mail: aemckennon@aol.com
The teaching studio is flexible.  Lessons can be weekly, short term, or as needed.  Lessons are generally scheduled Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.  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. 

**Every student should have a metronome.** 

For flute lessons, we can start with any method book(s) you own and build from there.  Public domain flute music is available at www.flutetunes.com.  Each program of study will be tailored to the student's needs and goals.  This can mean college preparation or simply music for fun.  Students will receive a pdf of scale exercises for every major and minor key.

Anne, thanks for having Linda
