Private Flute Lessons in Austin, Texas
My students come to my home for private lessons. Most of them take an hour or 45 minute lesson once a week, which I prefer because we have so much to cover! Some take a half hour lesson each week.
Although most of my students are children and teens, some are adults who have never played, while others used to play when they were younger and want to brush up their playing ability.
I have taught students from age 8 to 75 (yes, quite the story!). Boys and girls, each one with strengths and challenges, including developmental disability challenges. My flexibility in teaching styles and methods reaches all kinds of students. I believe that one should teach with a method that works for the student and be ready to create a new approach to a problem in a half second.
My students range from beginner to advanced levels.
