NOTABLE REVIEWS

“Lisa (flute), with her sense of humor, enthusiasm and at the same time, maintaining professionalism, keeps it interesting!”

-nppotdar

“I struggle with going flat the softer I get on higher notes, so I opened up Music Professor and sure enough they had a lesson to help me with my problem. I highly recommend that you use Music Professor if you are having any types of problems on your instrument.”

-E. Doctor

“The intermediate course is really effective, and covers the essentials. The instructor does an exemplary job in presenting the materials, and she is very pleasant and personable. I worked hard, so my results might not represent the norm, but I feel that I am at a lower intermediate level, perhaps ready for the advanced course. Both the beginning and intermediate courses were essentials for me, as I had never held a flute, much less attempted to play one. “

-Bruce Henderson
