My daughter has been taking lessons with Ms. Crosby for just over a year now and we very pleased with the progress. She is continuously progressing in her ability and has surpassed other same grade students in her school."

Flute lessons are for everyone.
Private Lessons help students learn:

Flute lessons are offered at 30, 45, and 60 minute intervals.
Students are accepted as young as Kindergarten, and there is no upper age limit.
Highly recommend! Jocelyn takes a holistic approach as a music educator, adapting her teaching to support students in reaching their full potential. Jocelyn interacts professionally and personably with students and parents, and is an accomplished musician and performer."

A little note from the teacher on perfectionism:
When I was young, I felt the need to be perfect in everything I did. I struggled to accept my own mistakes and failures and to give myself grace, and this especially applied to my flute playing. It took me a long time to develop the emotional intelligence and maturity to be able to focus on my success rather than my shortcomings as a player. Today's kids are more anxious than ever and perfectionism like mine runs deep. Part of my teaching is to help students frame mistakes and failures as part of the learning process so they can feel proud of their success and play with confidence.
Ms. Crosby is certified to teach music in Pennsylvania and has a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and Flute Performance, as well as a Master's Degree in Music History and a second Master's Degree in Education. She considers herself a lifelong learner and has completed two levels of Suzuki training and is pursuing Kinderflute training so she can use the best methods to help students learn how to play the flute.
