    Introduction
    I am a professional flutist in the State College/Bellefonte, PA, area with extensive teaching experience. I am seeking to expand my private flute studio with students of all levels from beginner to advanced, from 8 years old to adult. I am excited to share my expertise and love of flute playing with many new students!

    My Teaching Background
    Currently I perform as principal flutist with the Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra,and piccoloist with the Nittany Valley Symphony. I have 35 years of flute instruction experience, having taught all levels including flute majors at Penn State University and several other colleges, as well as at the Eastern Music Camp. I have a BMUS in flute performance from Wheaton College Conservatory and an MMUS in flute performance from the Hartt School of Music. I was principal flutist with the South Dakota Symphony and Dakota Wind Quintet and also performed with the New England Pops Orchestra and the Eastern Connecticut Symphony. I also conduct the Centre County Homeschool Orchestra and am contractor/owner of Community Chamber Artists. I also serve as Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I emphasize giving each student a solid background in the fundamentals of excellent sound production, technique, and musicality. I use an assortment of books to accomplish this including scales, etudes, duets, and solos works. I try to make each lesson productive, efficient, and enjoyable. Each year my students participate in a studio recital for family and friends to show their accomplishments.

    1/2 hour lesson $24
