Gina offers two options for lessons within the Los Angeles area. The first option is for you to have your lesson at her home studio. This is the most ideal learning environment for most students. Many students are distracted in their personal homes. Gina maintains a professional and distraction-free environment which benefits students the most in the learning process.
Alternatively, if students wish to have lessons in their home, this is another option. This is a great way for busy families to still get quality flute lessons for their children.
As a firm believer in the education of today’s youth, Gina is involved in many education-based projects. Gina is the Alumni Advisor for Utah Youth Orchestras and Ensembles and has been a woodwind coach for both the Utah Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Utah Youth Philharmonic. She also taught weekly as the flute coach for San Marino Middle School and for the Young Musicians Mentor Program for many years.
She has had the wonderful opportunity to be a mentor for two years with YOLA (Youth Orchestra LA) partnered with The Harmony Project and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Additionally, Gina has taught privately for ten years. Attention to musicality, music theory, performance technique and making learning enjoyable are key elements of every lesson. These necessary tools, along with Gina's experience of attending the Colburn Conservatory of Music and the University of Southern California, as well as studying with some of the greatest flutists in the world, will give her students all they need to succeed as a flutist and garner a deeper appreciation for music.
Study with Gina from anywhere in the world! Gina offers Skype lessons that can be scheduled whenever you want a flute lesson whether that be on a regular weekly basis or even just a one time consultation. All that is required for Skype lessons is a good internet connection, a computer, headphones and a webcam.
You will receive a lesson sheet after each lesson that highlights all aspects of the lesson. Another benefit Skype students will receive is Gina's daily warmup routine!
