Music is at its heart, a creative venture, and students need to practice and experience creativity in music. Anne’s philosophy is to give students the knowledge and technique they need, as well as a solid grounding in classical music, to allow them to explore their creativity unhindered. Students are encouraged to improvise, and to think about composed music from the composer’s point of view.
Anne always welcomes inquiries from interested students and parents. Lessons are either 30, 45, or 60 minutes, based on the student’s age and particular needs.
Teaching the 20th Century
I’ve been researching and developing a repertoire-based curriculum to help students develop their interpretation of the standard 20th century avant-garde works such as Sequenza I by Luciano Berio. Here is a summarization of repertoire and inspiration behind my creating this curriculum: A Progressive Curriculum for 20th Century Flute Repertoire
This preliminary list is a work in progress will be changed and updated as my research progresses.
