My 11 year old has been working with Michael for the past year. She’s not so thrilled with taking lessons outside of school, but she is doing so much better than her peers at school. Her teacher at school is impressed with the knowledge and skills she has obtained through working with Michael. He has been very good with helping her find pieces that she wants to play, which really helps with her willingness to practice. He really explains the music theory in terms that an 11 year old can understand. He is so patient and kind during their lessons, which I appreciate because my daughter can have her “moments”. He’s very knowledgeable and helped us to purchase a flute 6 months ago at a very good price. He was also helpful with finding a good quality repair shop to service her flute. You can’t go wrong when choosing to work with Michael - he’s great!Apr 22, 2019
Michael impressed me as a wonderful and a highly professional teacher! His expertise in music and skills are outstanding, yet, he managed to translate it to the level of the student so efficiently! Michael inspired my kids and brought their performance to the level, I couldn’t imagine. Thank you, House of Flutes!Apr 22, 2019
House of Flutes brings together the extraordinary combination of talent that has been carefully developed and trained with the best schools of Europe, and a true passion for teaching and training the next generation of flautists. As far as I have been able to observe firsthand, the central focus of Mr. Maizels' teaching methodology is as follows: 1.) the development of each student's natural talents and skills, and 2.) the promotion of the student's general wellbeing as they practice flute, while maintaining their regular school schedules and other obligations. My appreciation for Mr. Maizels' indubitable talent is only matched by my gratitude for his excellent instincts as a teacher: he knows how to challenge students to improve their musicianship without pushing them beyond their abity to handle the rigors of true classical training and world-class performance of the flute. A wonderful experience all round. I am happy to recommend House of Flutes without reservation.Apr 25, 2019
Michael is very talented,Highly experienced flute performer. His dedication to teaching is amazing. Michael started teaching Raina about 3 years ago and she her performance has improved tremendously. Because of his encouragement and coaching she was able to perform at the prestigious Carnegie hall in New York City. Michael’s teaching style is one on one with 100% attention to the student. He is patient, explains well and pays attention to every note so the students achieve perfection. Theory, techniques, styles are all taught well by him in his quiet studio is Blue Bell. We are very lucky to have him as a teacher and a guide for our daughter. We highly recommend Michael as a flute coach.Apr 22, 2019
