Now accepting students for private flute lessons (slots limited)

My Dad took me to my first concert. I haven’t been the same since. The flute in particular captivated and enthralled me, its charm its glitter, its ability to transport beautiful and spirited sounds. With my Dad’s support I began taking private lessons with Joe Sebastian and Harvey Hubbell. I played in the high school orchestra as well as the jazz band, my love for it has not diminished

Although flute remained dear to my heart, I played for personal pleasure while my children were growing up. After my children were grown, I entered the professional arena and began taking private lessons with Judy Kodaras. In time we collaborated
