Available for private lessons, evnets or weddings
I have taught for over twenty years as an approved private music teacher. Students have come from both private and public schools (Richardson, Plano, Garland, Wylie, Rowlette and Dallas areas).
I was taught by prominent music teachers on piano and the flute. I have learned from the best teachers and therefore pass on the best teachings of tone and technique to my students. I make use of my experience in band, orchestra, flute solo/ensemble and wedding work. (I have performed in the U.S.A. and Europe.)
Usually students start flute in the 6th grade and continue through the 12th grade and college. I delight in working with students to prepare for performance of solos/ensembles and college auditions.
There has always been in my life a true love of music and teaching. Accepting new students.
