Flute:
A musical instrument in the woodwind group. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. Starting with the basics we would first learn breathing and fingering techniques, notes, reading, rhythms, and songs. As the student progresses scales, theory and soloing will be taught.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

I tailor my teaching approach to each individual student, catering to their learning style and taking their individual goals into account. I believe it is most effective to be encouraging and supportive, highlighting strong areas and working with the student to assess problem areas and discover ways to correct them.
We will develop foundational skills with scales and etudes, bring out musicality and performance energy with solo work and also work on music the student may need to learn for school, band etc.

Our son began taking lessons with Gretchen starting the summer of 2016. She was his first flute instructor and we are glad he started out with her. In addition to her just being a great teacher, the opportunities she offers really increase the value of her as an instructor. The idea of learning to critique and be critiqued, performing in front of live audiences through GIFT, and having classes with other known instructors allow the students to improve general musicianship as well as flute playing.
Mary
Gretchen is a fantastic teacher. She is always encouraging and patient. Very good at listening and clearly explains all aspects of playing the flute.
Don
I am a lifelong musician (sax) who wanted to learn to play the flute and began by taking lessons from Gretchen. She is a terrific, experienced teacher and performer. She is an incredible musician and has a wide range of students ranging from young children to senior citizens (me as well as others) with a wide span of ability, skills and knowledge …beginners (me again) to very accomplished, experienced musicians. Gretchen is very adaptable and can effectively teach at all levels. She connects with her students and establishes excellent relationships with all. She is relaxed but focused, very positive and complimentary but can be gently critical when necessary. She’s cheerful, patient, optimistic and enthusiastic. Her lessons never get boring but are fun and fresh as she varies the focus of them, teaching basics, technical aspects and musical interpretation. She is great at managing any frustrations a student might experience and always celebrates their accomplishments and successes. And one of my favorite things is that somehow she always makes me feel good about my playing as we finish our lessons wether they be on-line or in person. Never boring…always encouraging…Gretchen is a great teacher. I’m lucky I found her.

I have played the flute for the past ten years including jazz and pop music, as well as marches and symphonies. As a teacher, it's important to me that students enjoy what they're doing and not only develop a strong foundation of theory but also a love for music. I think there is value in everything musical and I cater my lessons to my students' interests and goals.

Great instructor! My daughter has learned so much and is excited to have her lesson every week. Nicole is patient and knowledgeable. And the cost is more than reasonable. This is a great way for a child to learn an instrument during these challenging times. And you can be anywhere and still have a lesson; we have done them at grandma's house and during vacation! Highly recommend!
Amy Miskovsky
Nicole was a wonderful online instructor. My daughter (9 y.o.) learned so much - chords, how to read notes, rhythms and songs. Nicole also helped her prepare for a virtual talent show. Nicole went above and beyond what we expected and we have really enjoyed lessons with her.
Durga
Nicole is fantastic with our 5-year old. She has been our piano teacher since March and we could not be happier. She is articulate and has patience with our kid and I am sure she will be great with any kid any age. Get Nicole to help your child become an amazing piano player.

I've played flute for 13 years and throughout that time have performed multiple times for various events, been involved in band, and have taken lessons.

I do not teach flute to children under 10 because of the way the instrument strains the neck and wrists on younger children. I do suggest a trial session to see if the child is big enough, but if not I would love to do recorder or piano lessons. These instruments will both prepare the child greatly for playing flute in the future..

I currently teach lessons exclusively online using the online takelessons platform or Zoom. I do not travel for in home lessons. I am very passionate about music and believe it can serve as a gateway for many areas in life. It provides and assists with growth in many areas including: structure

I had virtually no musical ability or experience prior to my online lessons with Lela, however she has brought the joy out of finding a new musical part of my life. While I am no Carlos Santana, I'm enjoying slowly improving with Lela's guidance and look forward to daily practice.

Lela is an excellent piano teacher. She has so much patience with my daughter who is autistic and very active. I’m so glad I made the right choice picking the right teacher for my daughter. Thank you Lela for being so kind.
