About Private Lessons
I teach private flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, piano, and lever harp lessons in northeast Pensacola (UWF area). The studio typically has two student recitals per year, with opportunities to participate in scholarship competitions each spring. I'm a member of the Pensacola Music Teachers Association, so students are eligible to participate in those events as well. Virtual lessons are also available via a variety of online platforms, such as Google Duo or FaceTime.
COVID-19 Update: Lessons are currently offered online via a variety of platforms, but the option to resume in-person lessons will return once the percent positive in our area remains below 5%. We are tentatively scheduling an in-person winter recital this December in a location where there's plenty of room to spread out, and with masks required when not performing.
My goal is to help students express their joy and love of music through their chosen instrument. This is done through the study of technique and standard repertoire, incorporating music theory, ear training, basic music composition, and music history. Students are encouraged and have opportunities to play together, both solo and in small ensembles. I also help prepare students for a variety of auditions and music experiences, including All-County, All-State, Solo and Ensemble festival, various Honor Bands and music camps, youth orchestras, and college and scholarship auditions.

Lessons are available for adults, too!

Payments are due by the last scheduled lesson of the previous month. A late fee applies after the 1st of the month. Remember that lessons are a flat monthly payment throughout the year, regardless of holidays, the number of weeks/lessons in a month (see studio calendar below), or lessons cancelled by the student/parent.
