Kirsten teaches flute, mostly.
But she also teaches recorder, theory, composition, and history.
She generally provides flute lessons out of her studio in her house in the Phinney Ridge/Green Lake area.
She also travels to students' homes for which students are charged an extra fee. If you come to Kirsten’s at-home studio, please note that she has two cats - while they are not in her studio during teaching hours, severe allergy sufferers may find it difficult.
Lessons are offered year round.
From September to June, Kirsten teaches every week (with a Christmas break in December and an occasional week off depending on travel obligations). In July and August, lessons are offered on a casual basis, to accommodate vacation times.
Kirsten welcomes students of different ages and learning styles.
Kirsten adapts to the learning needs of each student: some students will want to do exams; some are looking to audition for an arts high school program or a specific ensemble; and some students just want to learn to play the flute without the pressure of exams or auditions. Every student is different - Kirsten tries to be flexible with the needs of each. She has taught students as young as six and as old as 75.
How much do flute lessons cost?
$25 for a half-hour lesson, $38 for a 45-minute lesson, and $50 for an hour lesson.
