Take flute lessons from an experienced flute teacher.
I have had many different students of all experience levels, and we will work together to identify and achieve your personal goals as a flutist and musician! All lessons are constructed to be engaging, interactive, comfortable, and fun! I understand that people learn differently, and I often utilize a variety of different activities or games to understand different mechanisms for flute playing. I focus on developing sound through the identification, manipulation, and collaboration of embouchure and diaphragmatic support; developing musicality in phrasing through the relation of singing and playing the flute, and focus on correct and hand and body position to prevent injury and to facilitate all aspects of playing the flute.
About Elisa A.

Hi, there! My name is Elisa and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students learn and/or improve their flute playing and improve their general understanding of music. I also really love helping students learn to articulate their ideas on paper! I went to East Carolina University and earned my BM in Music Performance and a BA in Hispanic Studies in 2016. I strive to make lessons both a fun and productive experience for students, and will use the educational goals that the student identifies to structure custom lesson plans for that student. I strongly believe in explaining the reasoning behind activities so students understand the goals that they are working towards in our lessons, and I am passionate about helping my students succeed. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
