Wow. It’s been over a year in the making. My flute + pedagogy blog has come into place. I had so much fun coming up with the design and concept! Check it out and join the newsletter if you want more information on flute pedagogy.

The newsletters are delivered on the last Thursday of every month. I have a partner in crime, Keith Hanlon, who also contributes.  See the blog at
