WELCOME TO THE
FLINCHUM FLUTE STUDIO!
Due to COVID-19, I will be offering virtual lessons via Zoom.
In-person lessons will be spread out, socially-distanced & masks will be worn.
It is my priority to think about the health and safety for not only myself, but to my students and their families.
Please contact me, if this is an option that interest you or if you have any questions regarding the situation.
Why I Teach Flute Lessons
I remember the time when I first started out playing the flute, and honestly, it was a complete struggle for me! From remembering fingerings, reading notes and numerous, failed attempts trying to create a simple sound, I realized the flute was not a natural instrument for me. My original excitement for music was rapidly declining, and I was on the verge of quitting and moving onto another activity that would slightly be easier for my capabilities. INSTEAD the decision my mom made by enrolling me in music lessons changed all my negative thoughts into a more positive and passionate perspective!
Having a private teacher helped me get past the struggles I was facing in my own playing, motivated me to set goals in improving my musicality, and allowed me to gain confidence with performing. I not only built myself up as a musician, but I also built a professional AND personal relationship with the mentors who guided me in my musical process which is what I truly value the most.
My experience has inspired me to pass my knowledge and skills to those who aspire to learn and achieve their goals in music.
I like to help my students learn and improve basic musical components, feel prepared and ready for auditions (All County & All State honor bands, youth orchestra groups, music school, & community organizations), and have the freedom to enjoy their instrument!
Every student has a different story, view-point, goal and challenge in their artistry, so my goal for them is to make sure I can assist them in their journey and help them find their musical voice the best way I can!

"I had wanted to learn to play the flute but there was always something needing to be attended to. After I retired, I wondered if this was still a realistic goal. Catherine has been an outstanding instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable. She is very precise in her instruction and goals for me but she never forgets to temper that with genuine caring and concern. She guides me and supports me when I begin to doubt this goal and always cheers me on as I progress. I would wholeheartedly recommend Catherine to anyone who wants to enjoy the flute.”
