I am a graduate of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge where I received my Masters of Music in Flute Performance. I earned my undergraduate degree at Ithaca College where I earned a dual Degree in Flute Performance and Jazz Studies on Piano. I have experience as a private flute teacher, general music teacher, chamber music coach as well as a theory tutor. My personal teaching style is to teach toward the individual strengths of each student. My goal is to cultivate the best musician I can with good technique and a discriminate ear. Above all, I want my students to have fun! Music is to be enjoyed, loved, and experienced to be appreciated. I believe my students can say that the learning process for them involved that if not anything else.

Ear Training

I am currently certified with a Preliminary License in the state of Massachusetts to teach General Music. In addition to this licensure, I have taught Ear Training and music appreciation in a classroom and private teaching setting in addition to having passed the Praxis Exams in Music and General Ed required to be certified in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

Flute

I have taught Privately for 7 years. I stated teaching during my undergrad in Delaware under Joan Sparks in her flute studio, The Flute Studio, in Wilmington, Delaware. I was a private teacher as well as accompanist and coach. I have experience working with beginners as well as the the more experienced. My job as your private instructor is to bridge all the possible avenues of understanding into a polished and knowledgeable player. This will allow for a flexibility in interpretation and style. My general goal for all of my students is for them to have a basic understanding of the skills I teach to be able to apply them in multiple musical situations. To achieve this goal, I offer lessons that encompasses sight reading skills, good sound and tone production, intonation, rhythm, and practice skills for purposes of retention. Beyond this, the student can work with me to decide what their goals are.

I teach all ages 7 and older and all levels. I accept all kinds of learners and believe in communication between the parent, student, and teacher to best adapt my teaching method to best suit the learning style and needs of the student. I also teach adults, because it is never too late to learn to play!

General Music

Piano

Adrienne’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Adrienne. View all of Adrienne’s resources

When I started undergrad, all freshmen were required to take two placement exams. These exams determined what courses you were placed in for Music Theory and Ear Training. You had to do well on these exams to prove your worth as a musician. Looking back, I cannot honestly speak to where this need came. I do not know if it was the nature of our freshman class or the atmosphere of the school... read more
