NYC Flute Instruction
Flute lessons in my NYC studio will enrich your child's life in wonderful ways.My name is Laura Thompson, and I would love the opportunity to teach your child to play the flute. I hold a M.Mus. and a B.Mus. in flute performance from Queens College/CUNY and have worked as a professional flutist, piccoloist, and baroque flutist for over 20 years. I have taught flute privately in New York City since 1996.
I studied piano and French horn as a kid, then switched to flute in high school. After completing university training I made the decision to start my journey as a certified Suzuki teacher in 1998.
I have completed teacher training with Toshio Takahashi, Rebecca Paluzzi, and David Gerry at Suzuki institutes across North America and I am forever grateful for the wonderful insight and passion of these trainers.
I truly do believe that every child can learn to play the flute, and I have seen first-hand how powerful and transformative the discovery of music is in a child's life.
I currently have limited space for new students aged 4 years and up. The teaching studio is conveniently located on NYC's Upper West Side, where I teach private and group lessons from Sunday to Thursday. If you would like to observe me in the teaching studio, or set up a time to meet with me about your child's music education, please contact me at (917) 545-4222.
