Hello! Would you like to reach your full musical potential whilst being guided and taught in a supportive, educational and friendly way? I believe you are in the right place!
Now accepting new students for Summer 2023! (June, July, August)
Learning the flute and any musical instrument in the beginning can be intimidating at first: not being sure on how to achieve a clear sound, having trouble with holding the flute comfortably and maintaining a correct posture, trying to improve the finger technique with the synchronicity of the fingers and the list goes on. Since every single professional musician has started at point 0 and steadily practiced their way to where they are now, it is important for every teacher to connect themselves to that feeling when they were going through the exact same thing to be able to successfully transfer their knowledge to the student. If you are at any level of flute playing, from being an ultra beginner or even at an advanced level, I would love to be able to help you on your musical journey!
As a teacher, I will be right there next to you throughout your unique music adventure through constantly challenging you with the goal of you reaching your highest musical potential. The best part of all? Everything will be achieved through a positive, uplifting and inspiring work atmosphere!
I‘ve had 5 lessons with Ariana during the Summer Break and it was worth it! Not only did I get a lot of good and helpful tips and exercises, but she also pointed out my strengths which made me more confident. Ariana is a very empathetic and grounded person and the lessons were fun.
"I’ve been having flute lessons with Ariana for almost 7 months. The reason why I started with her was, or still is, that I am unhappy with my local flute teacher. Ariana gives me everything I needed, without even noticing haha 😀 The real reason, however, is that I want to study music at university and I needed a teacher who does help and really put in the energy that I can achieve this goal. In December, I kind of started from scratch when it comes to technique. Back then I played Bach’s Siciliano at a concert and I sent a recording to Ariana. Besides the breathing and phrasing, she immediately noticed that my flute is positioned to high on my bottom lip. So, we started to adjust my embouchure, breathing, intonation and everything that goes with it. I also started to play Stamitz’s flute concerto in G major as it is one of the pieces you should know if you want to study music. I hardly could do any double tonguing, but meanwhile, with consistence practice and the help of Ariana, it has got so much better in a really short amount of time. Furthermore, I also started to play the piccolo, which I have never touched before our lessons. I am really happy to have such a great teacher. I highly recommend taking lessons with her if you want to improve your playing in a funny, professional and, what I’ve experienced, in a really fast way. It doesn’t matter at what level you are currently at because Ariana really individualises the lessons. Moreover, if you have the wish to play a certain piece, Ariana is willing to work on it with you and get the best out of it. If you have the opportunity to have lessons with her, it definitely will change your flute playing."
