I am a music teacher with 11 years of experience teaching flute, recorder, music theory, music history, ear training and music literature. I have contributed to the creation of music curriculums in one of the most renowned music schools in Montreal as well as being the author of a series of published music theory and music literature exercise books. I am also an active performer on the Boston classical music scene. I teach students of all ages and levels of proficiency. Lesson style is adapted to the goals of the student.
