This summer was really busy and very enjoyable.  In June I taught at all 3 University of Central Florida flute camps and had the pleasure to work with Dr. Garcia and terrific middle and high school students.  During the summer I taught flute classes and ensembles at Osceola County School for the Art to both middle and high school students.  To cap off the summer, I attended the National Flute Association Convention, which this year for the first time in 25 years, was held in Orlando.  It was truly inspiriting to hear and learn from many of the best flutists in the world.  And it was wonderful to see so many Florida flutists being featured.

At the NFA convention I was part of a pedagogy seminar on flute teaching, rehearsed and performed with the Florida Flute Orchestra and three of my students performed beautifully in a Repertoire Gems Concert (see the Congrats page of this website).
