Flute and Piccolo Lessons
Student Performances and Events
Bethany regularly organizes exciting performances and events for her students to provide them with opportunities to grow and enjoy playing their instruments for others. Her students often play at nursing homes, studio recitals, flute choir concerts, competitions, at solo/ensemble festivals such as UMFA's Rising Stars Festival, in the Minnesota All-State Band, and in local youth orchestras such as MYS and GTCYS.
Last season, two of her students performed with the Minnesota Sinfonia on their Youth Outreach Concert. Some of Bethany's students also performed on Upper Midwest Flute Association's 2015 Marathon Flute Concert, which Bethany and Andrea organized to establish a scholarship fund for flute students in the Upper Midwest.
Bethany strongly encourages her students to attend Lake Sylvia Suzuki Flute Institute during the summer for an amazing week of flute fun in a beautiful lakeside camp setting.
For students: schedule
Bethany maintains an active flute teaching studio along with her performance work and has experience with students at all levels, from beginners to advanced players. Her approach addresses all facets of flute performance, including sight-reading, rhythmic reading, effective use of vibrato, technical proficiency, musicality and exposure to the flute repertoire in a positive, encouraging atmosphere. Bethany is a certified Suzuki flute teacher and has completed training in Books 1-6 and 9.
In addition to teaching privately in the Twin Cities, Bethany is the adjunct professor of flute at Winona State University.
Bethany is also available to teach flute sectionals in public and private schools in the Twin Cities area.
