Cairns Flute Lessons

I have been teaching flute & music for over 30 years and derive so much pleasure seeing my students improving whilst building a lifetime love of flute & music. I love what I do & am passionate about passing on my skills & love of music to my students.Flute Lessons in Cairns and Skype Flute Lessons

I am very proud of the flute playing and musical achievements of my all students throughout the years that I have been teaching.  My students regularly achieve outstanding results in their yearly flute examinations. Many of my former students have gone on to successfully gain positions in tertiary music programs and to pursue music as a career becoming music teachers at schools & universities – as well as working in other areas of the music industry. The most important achievement for me though is knowing that each student of mine is building a life long love of flute and music and has personal satisfaction in their progress whilst developing valuable skills.

I conduct flute lessons in a positive and encouraging environment.  I always aim to provide a rewarding music learning experience at each lesson no matter what age or level the student is. Lessons focus on developing the correct technique in all aspects of flute playing.

I teach all ages & levels from beginners through to tertiary level. Students can do exams or learn just for fun.  Flute exams are conducted through the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB).

Flute lessons are conducted in Cairns, Queensland.

 

AMEB Exam Results 2017

Congratulations to all my students who did their Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) flute exams in September this year.  Exams done ranged from Preliminary level to Grade 7.  Overall results achieved averaged a high A with students receiving either A+ High Distinction, A Honours or B+ Credit.

 I pride myself on every year achieving outstanding results for all of my students and it was great to see that trend continuing in 2017.

Dear Jane

It has been an amazing 3 years since I first met you.  From 60 minutes of scales to delightful duos, it has been a sometimes painful but always a fun & enjoyable time of my life.  I love your sense of humour and the friendly vibe you give off.

Thank you for your constant encouragement, and for always being patient & kind, even when I sleep in and come late to lessons…..I honestly could not have wished for a better teacher.

Our time together will definitely be something I will remember when I look back on my life in Cairns and everytime I pick up the flute, I will think of you.  nce again, thank you for being a part of my life.

Dear Jane

Only you could make a stubborn 10 year old practice. Who could get me to play in front of a room full of strangers – who could get me through 6 exams and a performance certificate without dying of stress?

Thank you for eight years of friendship and fun and thank you for all the friends I have met through your concerts and the competitions.Flute Teaching Ensemble Young

Lots of love

Dearest Jane

Well you have been my favourite music teacher so far & you probably always will be.

You have always been so patient with me, even when I haven’t practiced a lot. I will never forget your kindness. I will never forget you.

You have taught me so much but most important – you have taught me to love music and the flute.

Lots of love and friends 4 ever, Joey

Dear Jane,
I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work with Debbie so far. Your constant encouragement & positive comments have helped her tremendously.
She looks forward to her lesson every week. In fact, it is the highlight for her. You have helped increase her confidence & self esteem.
I don’t think you realize how much you’ve helped her so I would like to thank you.
