I'm here to help!
I've been helping students for over 18 years, teaching in different countries to a range of ages (from 3 to 70+) and abilities (from Tiny Toots to Grade 8+)
Here's what you can expect from our lessons
Develop good technique, from the basics like fingerings and breathing to more advanced concepts like tone production and performance practice.
Unlock your Creativity and sense of Creative Play. This not only helps you become a better flute player, but helps you find your own unique voice as an artist (and person).
Cultivate a deeper understanding of Music Theory, History & Culture. Music is so much more fun to play when we understand how it works and where it comes from. We'll dive into different world musics and explore the inner workings of music theory.
Develop Musicality. We'll tap into your inner drama queen and discover the range of emotions we can utilize to help tell a story through music.
Learn how to Practice Smart so that you get the most out of your time, even if you only have a little of it.
Be part of a Cool community community of like-minded flute-lovers. Meet other students at various events throughout the year including studio recitals, masterclasses, socials and camps.
Build Confidence by learning to trust yourself. Set your own personal goals and impress yourself when you beat them (though I'll always have known you had it in you).
But wait... there's more!

Always wanted to learn the flute? Or want to pick it back up? It's never too late! I love working with adult students to help them learn new skills and unlock their creativity. My method is holistic, encouraging not only the development of technique but a deeper understanding of music, because I believe that music matters and learning it leads to a greater appreciation of our world well beyond the realm of clefs and scales.
My teaching philosophy
I believe we learn faster when we're having fun, so I have carefully crafted a studio culture that knows that every student is capable of great things when they enjoy what they're learning. The more students enjoy their lessons, the more likely they are to engage with the topics and practice in their own time. I tailor my lessons to each individual student, making sure that they get the most out of their lessons and meet their personal goals, while at the same time fostering a sense of play and creativity.
Creative play has countless benefits: it motivates us, tests our creative limits, fosters curiosity, boosts our mood, encourages us to try new things, cultivates our imagination and teaches us to trust ourselves. It's a bit of a no-brainer, eh?
I also encourage my students dive into the theory and culture of music. As an ethnomusicologist, I understand the importance of studying other cultures and musics, especially in early education. By cultivating curiosity in world music along with classical flute education, I hope to help students bridge cultural divides and develop empathy.
I encourage my students to take ownership of their learning, building on their strengths and working through their weakness. Students are expected to practice between their lessons, to ensure that they get the most out of their time with me.
Beyond one-to-one teaching, I value community & curricular activities as a means to further enrich music learning and foster curiosity. This is why I'm constantly developing a programme that includes everything from masterclasses and chamber music opportunities to summer camps and socials.
