Kevin, middle school student
"She’s nice and helps me on the hard parts in songs."
Amanda, middle school student.
"I put my flute away after college. When I got it back out 10 years later, I was disappointed that I couldn’t play as well as I had. Leslie helped me get the 'cobwebs' out of my playing and to progress even further. I love having flute back in my life."
Cathy, an adult student
"Leslie's warm and encouraging personality, and her interest in her students as individuals, fosters a terrific learning environment. Her enthusiasm for teaching isn't confined by the boundaries of the lesson — it was obvious when I came for a lesson that Leslie had spent time between lessons thinking about how to help me work through a piece of music. Although she is an expert musician, she appreciated that I wasn't and always looked for ways to relate the mechanics of flute playing to other experiences, which really facilitated my enjoyment and learning."
Karen, an adult student
