Music is a powerful tool and can have a lasting, positive effect. Having experienced this myself, I love performing and teaching my flute studio in Boise, Idaho! Aside from various university ensembles, I have had the opportunity to perform with Hymns of Thanksgiving as a solo artists and member of the orchestra, Meridian Symphony Orchestra, Boise Women's Chorus, and Opera Idaho.
Teaching flute lessons and workshops have become one of my favorite parts about music! I have a private flute studio in Boise, Idaho of students ranging from beginners to adults. Teaching for many years, I have learned a lot from each student. Each individual brings new inspiration, challenges, and success. Our flute studio members have been active participants in All-State, various Honor Bands in the Treasure Valley, BSU Honor Flute Choir, BSU All-Star Honor Band, Solo and Ensemble Festivals, and much more.
I am honored to be the Faculty Flute Instructor for the Boise State University Summer Chamber Music Camp. This week-long summer camp is a great event for young musicians of all disciplines to learn more and connect with their peers. For more information visit the Boise State University Department of Music Summer Camp page.
I began the Johnston Summer Flute Choir Workshop for grades 6-8 and 9-12 in Johnston, Iowa in 2014. Each group meets for three hours a day over a five day week. At the end of the workshop, we perform a combined concert of flute choir music that includes staging and props! I am proud to offer this workshop each year!
Similarly, the Boise Summer Flute Choir Workshop began in 2017. Each summer students will be offered the opportunity to learn more music, collaborate with other flutists, experience a smaller ensemble, and show their performing creativity!
I would love to thank the important flutists that have helped bring me to where I am today through individual instruction: Dr. Claudia Anderson, Anne Stein, Dr. Angeleita Floyd, and Dr. Nicole Molumby.
