I teach privately, and take students of all ages and levels.

Along with getting a foundation in flute literature, it is important to to build a connection between the flute and the music the student enjoys. I will often arrange music a student likes so he or she can play it on the flute, and I have no problem with the student bringing in "outside" music, or wanting to concentrate on a specific area of flute music other than the standard repertoire.

I began teaching flute lessons when I was a freshman in high school, and since I was nineteen, I have also given flute advice on allexperts.com, under my middle name of Holly (click here to read it).

If you have any questions or would like more information, just send me an email and we'll go from there.


Studio Policies

  • Please be on time for your lesson - generally, I am not able to extend your session if you are late. (Exceptions may be made, depending on the circumstances.)

  • I am open to rescheduling a lesson if you have another commitment - as long as you notify me no later than a week in advance. Any cancellations made less than a week before may or may not be rescheduled, at my discretion. If you cancel a lesson the day of, you will still have to pay for it, except in the case of a sudden sickness or an emergency.

  • Please DO cancel a lesson at any time you are sick with anything contagious - we can reschedule when you are well.

  • It is recommended (but not required) for students to bring a notebook to lessons with them, to take notes about lesson material, things to work on, and pieces to get. While older students can take notes for themselves, I often take notes for younger students when that is preferable.

  • Parents are always welcome to audit lessons, especially in the beginning.

  • Before you leave the house, doublecheck that you have everything you'll need to bring to a lesson: flute, music, any questions/business you might have to ask me, etc. This may seem obvious, but believe me, it is very difficult to teach a lesson when the student has forgotten their flute. :)
