Students in my studio experience a growing community of learning musicians, all supporting one another as they learn new repertoire and techniques for their instrument. I encourage this sense of community through recitals, flute choir, and workshops. Lessons are held privately in my studio, the comfort of your own home, and at The International School of Music in Bethesda.

LESSONS

Lessons offer serious music students a well-rounded education in a challenging and immersive environment. Individual attention and tailored instruction expedite the learning process. 

Consistency is key in music education, and attending weekly lessons is important for musical growth. In order to provide this consistency, my studio schedule runs year-round on a monthly basis, and all studio holidays are posted before Fall Semester.

Please contact me for more information or to book a trial lesson.


RECITALS

Performing consistently is an essential component to music education. Studio members participate in biannual recitals, mastering repertoire for their instrument in a nurturing atmosphere.

These recitals offer students an opportunity to showcase their hard work on long-term projects to friends, family, and colleagues. Students also experience and practice performing under pressure, utilizing tools for playing through performance anxiety learned in my Performance Workshops.

Professional photographs and videos of the recital are provided as part of the recital package. Recitals typically take place at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rockville, MD.

FLUTE CHOIR

Intermezzo Flute Choir is held on Wednesday evenings from 8 pm to 9 pm at International School of Music in Bethesda. Every year, we perform in two recitals, outreach performances, and audition for an honors recital held by the International School at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, NYC.

Playing in an ensemble reinforces skills learned in lessons and gives students an opportunity to develop new skills necessary for playing music outside the practice room. In flute choir students are listening to their peers to match intonation, articulation, vibrato, style, etc., learning to follow my tempo and gestures as I conduct, and being exposed to music from many eras and genres. 

Students in my flute choir have grown to be good friends and enjoy their rehearsals together. They learn from each other and help each other with difficulties from week-to-week. We are always looking for new additions, so if you are interested please contact me for more information.
