A Few Reasons to take Private Lessons

  • If you are feeling behind in your ensemble, catch up quickly! Private lessons help you be able to stay ahead in musical ensembles and enjoy your experience.
  • If you enjoy ensembles but want more music to work on or music that will challenge you as a flutist.
  • If you want to work on music you would not experience in large ensemble such as solos and duets
  • If you are preparing for goals such as chair placement auditions, ILMEA, honor band, or extracurricular ensembles and want the help of a specialist.
  • If you want to participate in solo competitions like Solo and Ensemble Contest
  • If you want to major in music in college.
  • If you want to constantly improve on your instrument.
  • If learning an instrument has always been on your bucket list.  It's never too late to learn!

What do I teach?

I teach flute, piccolo, and piano.  I teach all levels of flute and piccolo. For piano, I teach beginner and intermediate students.

I instruct students of all ages and levels.  I am experienced working with young children all the way up to adults and I enjoy teaching everyone!

Where do I teach?

I teach at various locations in the Western Chicago suburbs. 

  • My home in Downers Grove (near where 63rd St. and I-355 intersect)
  • Plainfield East and Plainfield North High Schools
  • Quinlan and Fabish Music Store (Burr Ridge Location)

How long are Lessons?

I teach 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute private lessons.  For beginners I recommend 30-minute lessons, but as students progress in their skills, a 45-minute or 60-minute lesson is ideal.  Lessons are a reserved time once a week.  Please contact me about my rates for lessons.
