|| NOTABLE REVIEWS ||

“First off, this course is VERY professionally put together, not just some amateur teacher. Great teacher and the pieces you learn are nicely broken down into sections.”

    -Tony Witty

“This is a well planned out course that teaches you more than just a few simple tunes - there's music theory, scales and terminology which gives you a more solid understanding of music.”

    -James Choi

“Very high quality course - seems kind of disconnected by itself though, so I would suggest enrolling in the other flute courses by this instructor.”

    -Laura West
