Flute Lessons

Jessica is accepting new students of any age and ability to join her private studio.
30, 45, or 60 minute lessons are available at your location or her studio in Manhattan.

I am a strong believer in self-motivation and help students create goals toward which they can work. Knowing that all students learn in different ways and at varying paces, I construct lessons to suit the needs of each individual student. I assign warm-ups and exercises that confront specific concepts the student is struggling with in order to help him/her focus on one or two aspects of playing. I find that this helps address problems early on, rather than letting them fester and create bigger issues later. As one can never have enough public performance experience, I encourage students to play in studio recitals and occasional group lessons in order to become more comfortable playing for peers and audiences in general.

I believe it is important to find a balance between having fun playing an instrument while preserving a sense of discipline in order to improve. Lessons are challenging but flexible and are a place where students should be comfortable and not afraid to express themselves in their musical endeavors.
