Personal Statement
I love playing the flute! Not only is it a beautiful instrument to listen to, but it is also a healthy instrument to play. The breathing techniques are similar to those used in meditation.

I began playing when I was ten, studied with several famous teachers and at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Mass. with a full scholarship. I have a legacy to share.

I am a good teacher and get results with my students. Of course the student must love the instrument and want to learn, or it is a waste of both of our time and your money.

I teach young to old, beginner to advanced and do not believe in cookie cutter lessons. Everyone is different, and so my approach with each student is designed to fit his/her needs.

I especially enjoy teaching adults who once played the flute and want to resume playing.

I am an open and friendly individual, and lessons should be fun, but I do want you to practice and grow! I'll show you how.
Education / Training
I studied at the New England Conservatory of Music on a full scholarship. While there, I studied with James Pappoutsakis, flutist with the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops. I also attended Manhattan School of Music for one semester and studied with Frances Blaisdell of the NY Metropolitan Opera. Prior to my college years, I studied with James Walker of the Cleveland Symphony and Claude Monteux, flutist and conductor.

Subsequent studies were at SUNY New Paltz with a concentration in theory and jazz improvization. I studied with world class flutist Gary Schocker at that time for two years.

I now own Magic Flute Weddings, a musicians network for weddings and special events. I play a lot of weddings, recitals and also play by ear and perform jazz and rock; however, I do not teach jazz and rock, just classical. I have been a cross over performer all my life and can play anything I hear. I also started the website to help other flutists find work.
