Parents of previous students have said:

My daughter (who is now in college) was a student of Michelle’s from 4th – 11th grade. Michelle is a talented musician, a wonderful person, and a very effective teacher. My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Michelle - it was always a bright spot in her busy week. She benefited from Michelle’s guidance outside of lessons also – recitals, entering and placing in solo competitions, and auditioning and playing for the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. We felt so lucky to have found Michelle – she was an excellent teacher and a wonderful role model - teacher, musician, mother. I recommend her very, very highly.


Michelle is a fantastic teacher! My daughter was a beginner student, just starting at elementary school, and we wanted to supplement those lessons. Wow, what a difference it has made! Elaine shows improvement after every lesson and she just LOVES Michelle. She is patient and kind, and very motivational. She has a knack for reaching Elaine and bringing out the best in her. Thank you, Michelle!


My daughter is a beginner and was struggling with her high notes, and Michelle helped her to overcome my daughter's fear of not making right sounds in one 30-minutes class with her optimism, encouragement, and outstanding knowledge. Michelle is fantastic by making flute lessons interesting! Thank you very much!
