I am a flute teacher and a recent graduate of Stony Brook University, with m B.M. in music performance. I have performed in youth orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist. I perform a wide variety of classical music.
Price Range: $100-200
I am a musician who is eager to get her hands into gigging and performing in various types of places. I have played flute for several years, and although I am mostly a classical player, I have looked into and played Celtic and some other folk tunes in front of family and friends. I am generally an orchestra musician and a soloist. I adapt quickly to environments, am relatively flexible with my schedule, and I will play and or sing with other people at any given time.
I have mostly been doing my music at school, until recently. I won second place in the college division of the Long Island Flute Solo Competition this February with a beautiful work written by Georges Hue, and performed in a concert for the club with this piece a month later. I have been a part of other school competitions before, playing works from Mozart to Debussy and so on, and I have had a few solo recitals of my own where I played music ranging from Bach to neoclassical twentieth century works.
I have always loved performing. I danced for many years and took part in high school musicals before I chose to major in music performance. And yes, this means I also sing I preform songs from the Phantom of the Opera and Frozen. I also cover songs from Josh Groban, etc.
I am also a flute teacher. I teach two wonderful young kids who really love music and am looking to build up my studio. I hope to one day be able to teach ballet and voice, but one thing at a time!
I am also interested, although honestly not experienced in, writing my own songs and compositions. I also have been working on rearranging some songs from Irish folk singers, namely Loreena McKennit at the moment, that have voice and instrumentation to work with flute, alto recorder, and tin whistle. This particular song is called "The Old Ways", has an exciting violin (flute) solo in the beginning before the singing begins. It is still in the works. When it is ready, I will record myself doing all of the parts.
Currently, I am still working on all these things while getting ready for graduate school auditions and placement exams, as well as searching for jobs and so forth. I am a dynamic flutist and a good singer, and for the most part can sing in pop, classical, and broadway-like styles. Please contact me if you have any questions about my credentials and what I do at any time. I appreciate your consideration!,
