My 8 year old daughter started piano lessons at age 5. I wanted her to enjoy learning and not view it as work. Julie Ann is such a great instructor she was able to read my daughters personality and, in turn, tailor her teaching to my daughters natural pace. She doesn't push or force students to perform -- she engages them and makes them feel confident in their learning. Julie Ann keeps us informed on progress, learning strategies and helps us understand how to help our daughter continue learning during home practice times. I reccommend Scottsdale Studio of Music to students of all ages who are interested in learning an instrument.
My daughter has taken lessons with Elizabeth for a couple of years: she's learned a lot as a flute player (and she went from wanting to quit to now seeing the flute as a lifelong instrumenther band teacher said "don't quit: take private lessons, you'll see!" and it was true). In addition to taking lessons, working with Elizabeth on the ensemble performances has been *excellent*. Also Elizabeth helps us keep on top of things I'd forget (when to get the flute maintained, for example). She is definitely more than a weekly teacher: she really cares about the student as a person (my daughter feels very close to her), and about music and music history, and about creating events for her studio that range widely and offer different (& cool) experiences (performances in an art gallery on First Friday, at Holiday Harmony in downtown Scottsdale, at a poetry conference on a college campus, in nursing homes and churches, etc etc...). She's very thoughtful and she shows this with lots of small touches that give students a sense of being really cared about and supported. I think we've been very lucky to know her!
Dr. Jeff is a great teacher. We are doing piano lessons for my 6 year old son, and flute for my 9 year old daughter. He even helped me find inexpensive instruments for them. Dr. Jeff is very patient with my incredibly energetic and TALKATIVE kids, refocusing them when they get offtrack during a lesson. They both look forward to their lessons, so I think that says alot about his teaching methods and how much they like him. (I know many adults who tell me they hated their music lessons as kids) I try hard not to have to cancel their lessons, but on the occasion it does happen he has been very accommodating to reschedule if possible. I would recommend Dr. Jeff to anyone young or old, who is interested in learning an instrument.
My son age 9 started taking guitar lessons from Rena a year ago. He can read any music and play almost anything she puts in front of him, because of the great teacher/musician she is. She dedicated to my child's education in life. Thank you Rena -----------Chrisdena
I really enjoyed listening in on the lessons. She worked very well with my 14 year old daughter and my 6 year old twin boys. They are running to the piano to show me what the have learned! I've recently decided to let my daughter have some flute lessons for improvement in her school band and am looking forward to seeing the results.

I've been teaching flute and piano for over 20 yr in the Phoenix area. I have a master's degree from New England Conservatory in Boston. My students have participated in regional and all-state events and placed first in Az Flute Society Competitions. I focus in on each student's individual needs and talents to get the most out of lessons and enjoy.
I provide music lessons, including flute and piano. I book musical talent and entertainment for various events.
As a professional flutist currently pursuing a Doctorate in Musical Arts, I can offer specialized information on the flute that teachers doubling in other instruments may not be able to offer. I am very experienced in problem-solving, and love to help students become their own teachers! Lessons should be fun and positive, and I strive to create a healthy, optimistic environment while learning and improving!
I have 25 years experience. And am flexible on location, dates and times.
