Information for Parents and Students

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you have openings in your studio for all levels of flute students?

Please contact me to check!  I 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: $50

45 min: $65

60 min: $80

*Rates apply to regular weekly students.  If you are interested in a single lesson or short term lessons then different rates apply.  Contact me for more information. 

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 teach out of my home studio in Springfield, Virginia.
