 I'm here to offer you MAGICAL online flute lessons at Flute With Grace!

 

I'm Grace and I'm Minnesotan living on a Magical island in the beautiful country of Croatia!

I started playing the flute in 5th grade, over 30 years ago! The reason I picked the flute is a little embarrassing...

 

I remember choosing it because I REALLY liked putting instruments in cases, I really liked the blue velvet interior!

                     

 BUT...

I also loved the sound of the flute AND that the flutes got to play the melody most of the time!

 

I was a melody chaser, which in my first years of playing caused me to play a lot but not necessarily PRACTICE a lot! 

Do you...

Find yourself playing all the time but not making progress in the school band?

 

When I was in school I THOUGHT I was practicing because I was ALWAYS playing along to the Pocahontas, Les Miserables, and Titanic cds!

 

I hadn’t learned HOW and WHAT to practice yet!

Do you...

STRUGGLE with rhythm and playing with a metronome?

That was ME a million percent! I learned the MAGIC of the METRONOME with the help of my college professor!

Do you...

Get OVERWHELMED by all the practice options?!

 

Scales, fingers, intervals, etudes, classical, pop music?? How to organize your practice session?

 

Once I learned how to ORGANIZE my practice....

MAGIC HAPPENED

A little bit about me...

I began my career in 2008 as a middle and high school band director. I was living the dream! Throughout my career I worked with students at many different stages of their musical journey. The cool thing about having students from the age of 11 until they’re 18 is you get to watch them transform! MAGIC. 

I had one student in particular who came to our school as a Junior. He was  there on scholarship for math and science, but wanted to try EVERYTHING.

 

One day, he came up to me and said, “HI! I want to learn the flute!”  I said, “Heck yes!” The next week we had our first lesson: THE HEAD JOINT!

 

This student REALLY struggled to make his first sounds on the head joint, but I knew he could do it! He came in for regular lessons for the next couple of weeks, still struggling a lot. I began to wonder.. Maybe he can’t?

 

And then! Suddenly! He did it!

It was MAGICAL. From that moment on he came in for regular lessons, practiced daily, and by the end of the year was performing in the school band AND the pit orchestra for our Spring musical! This student was REMARKABLE.

 

I loved teaching band and orchestra, but after 16 years I realized I loved teaching FLUTE even more!

Helping students find their passion for music, solve their musical mysteries, and work towards their personal goals is what I love to do.
