Lessons & Master Classes

PRIVATE FLUTE LESSONS

towerSCHEDULING OPTIONS

Various scheduling options are as follows:

a) students coming for multiple consecutive days of lessons from anywhere in the world, up to six hours a day;

b) those who want lessons once or twice a month for one to three hours a session;

c) those who seek a ‘one-off’ lesson from one to three hours.

Other than her performance travels on the road, Rhonda is able to be flexible to YOUR scheduling needs. She also teaches lessons through Skype, though time preference understandably goes to ‘In-Person’ requests.

WHAT KIND OF STUDENTS/CLIENTS?

Rhonda looks for serious University/Higher Education flutists who want to be soloists or ensemble performers; Adult Amateurs whose wonderful habit is to seek expansion of their own paradigms; and Professionals at any stage of their career in which they wish to look at their music life through a different window! Rhonda simply looks for an willingness to be teachable, and an openness to try new things.
She is willing to consider the enthusiastic high-school age flutist, but this age-group will require an audition process.

RHONDA’S APPROACH TO TEACHING?

Rhonda’s teaching ‘role’ is much like that of a doctor: assessing the issues needing attention, and setting to work on bringing each individual to a place *within themselves* where they can play their music with technical ease and expressive, bold freedom. Ultimately, to reach the heights of each player’s greatest potential. All this with the enduring reminder of why we play our flutes in the first place: because we LOVE it! As most any teacher will agree, it is an enlightening process for both ‘student’ and teacher alike!

MASTERCLASSES

roch2ptRhonda teaches masterclasses all over the world. The format simply means a method of public-teaching:

a) “Rhonda’s Rubrics”: teaching multiple flutists all at one time in group participation (from one to three hours). Includes physical training warm-up, and (or) group flute phrases for technical prowess.

b) Standard music masterclass setting of teaching one flute soloist at a time, while the audience listens to the “public lesson” (lasting from one hour to multiple days with logical breaks in between. Day-long events are typically twenty to thirty minutes per performer).

c) Rhonda offering public lectures on various topics (from fifteen minutes to one hour). Topics include:
The Art of Performance;
The Business of Music;
How To Find Your Niche in Music;
Life as a Performing Artist;
Organizing an Effective Flute Event;
How to Teach Flute to Young Students (applicable also to Band Directors);
Exploring Ethnic Flutes;
and more…

Rhonda typically offers any requested masterclass as part and parcel of a public performance of her show, “One Woman, a World of Music”.
