SMARTMUSIC
Smartmusic is required for lessons. See me for more details.

ORDERED MUSIC
I will place 2 orders for music (one in fall and one in spring). Each student will receive a repertoire list at the beginning of each semester. It is the responsibility of the student and their parents to pay for music. I understand music is expensive, so I’ll make every effort to keep the costs low!

LISTENING 
How can you be a chef without tasting the best food? Similarly, how can you be a confident flutist without listening to good players?

Listening is a big part of lessons. I strongly suggest you order CDs, or subscribe to Google Play. We talk about different performers and styles of music in every lesson! Every month I send an email inviting students to listen to a new flutist or composer.
