Frequently Asked Questions
Do you teach other instruments besides the flute?
Yes, we also teach piano! We have both a Suzuki Piano & Flute program.
Do I have to take both group classes and private lessons?
Yes! Both are necessary and included in your tuition. There are many skills to acquire in group class setting that cannot be taught in a private lesson alone. Most students love group class.
Do I have to purchase my own instrument?
Yes, we have a variety of flute options that you can choose from. We also have a flute rental program for ages 3-6 if you would prefer to rent from us until you are ready to purchase. All flute & piano teachers will assist you in the process of purchasing your own instrument.
How do I know what instrument to choose for my child?
If your child is not clearly gravitating toward a specific instrument, it does not really matter. What is important to consider is the child’s relationship with his/her teacher and their overall experience.
Do parents have to come to lessons?
Yes, parents are required to attend all lessons so that they can take on role of “at home teacher/practice partner.”
What if my child doesn’t like the program? I am bound by a contract?
The commitment is for the duration of the full academic year (Sept-June), however if you need to withdraw for any reason at all, we ask for 30 days’ notice or 1 month’s tuition so that we can fill your spot.
Can my child begin at any time during the year?
Yes! As long as we have new student openings.
Our 13-year-old has been learning from Ms. Jenni since she was 6 years old. She’s become quite the flutist with Ms. Jenni’s guidance! Ms. Jenni approaches each child with great thought about and flexibility with the child’s unique needs and interests, approaching music education in a holistic and child-centered way. She also clearly understands the important role that parents play in their child’s education (a lot of research has demonstrated this) and collaborates with parents to make music education a success.
