While teaching at different levels and schools in recent years, I have come to appreciate the more relaxed atmosphere of teaching privately at home. Not only can choices of repertoire, topics of discussion and the intensity of the work match the student's exact needs and available time, but here I'm able to focus entirely on the individual student without having the distraction of school requirements such as schedules, exams and repertoire lists.

Throughout my almost 20 years as a professional flutist in orchestras and ensembles, I have had the privilege to work with and learn from musicians from around the world who have brought their knowledge and experience onto the stage. Many of them have helped me to shape my career, strongly influencing my musical choices, my teaching methods and personality. As a teacher I have the opportunity to share this knowledge with curious young flutists who aspire to broaden their horizons.

The areas of study I offer can be a complement to a coursework at a music school, superior school/university or employment of any kind. For many students it might be an invaluable addition to lessons with their regular teacher. In this case a specific topic (preparation for an audition for example) could be the focus of lessons for a defined period of time.

The student is free to choose the frequency of lessons (weekly or bi-monthly) and duration of the lesson (1 or 2 hours) according to his or her personal needs.
