Information for Parents and Students
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you have openings in your studio for all levels of flute students?
Yes! Currently, I have openings in my studio for all levels, including beginners. However, I do require that every student have a "trial" lesson before being officially admitted into my studio. This is to ensure that the student is serious and also so that the student can make sure I'm a good fit for them as well.
Q: What are your rates?
Currently, my rates are:
30 min: $45
45 min: $55
60 min: $65
Rates are subject to change yearly.
Q: Do you take adult students?
Absolutely! Even if you have never touched the flute or haven't picked up the flute in 20 years and just want to enjoy playing.
Q: Does every student have to take weekly lessons?
Yes. For flute students to see effective progress, weekly lessons are essential for the serious student. If you are interested in performance/competition coaching and not flute lessons, then weekly lessons are not required.
Q: What flute should I buy/rent?
Depends on the age/level/seriousness of the student. It is very important to get a professional opinion (outside of a salesperson at a music store) because many beginner flutes are poorly made. Certain brands look nice at the music store but break constantly-- costing far more in repairs! Contact me through the form on my website and I would be happy to share a list of reliable flute brands/stores.
Q: Can you travel to my home for lessons?
I do not teach lessons in students' homes. I teach out of my home studio in Springfield, Virginia.
