      I am a mother of five ranging in age from 16 to 6. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with an emphasis on flute and piano. I have been teaching off and on for 15 years and have taught (am teaching) each of my kids to play the piano as well. I am also instructing two of my daughters to play the flute. My schedule now allows me to teach students who want to take lessons during the day, ie. homeschoolers. I teach both flute and/or piano in my home and charge $80/month. I live on the SW side of Gainesville near Haille Plantation.
      My curriculum includes music theory, scales, technic and ear training. I love music and want you to love it too! There are so many benefits to learning an instrument.
