Studio Resources


Performing is an integral part of instruction so multiple performances are scheduled each season as a part of your flute lessons.

All students perform in one formal solo recital annually but there are additional recitals scheduled as well. Flute ensemble participants will participate in a minimum of 3 concerts each year.

Information about each recital is sent out with 8 weeks’ notice provided. A small additional fee is billed for the solo recitals to support pianist and rental fees.
