Hello!  My name is Elizabeth Pickens.  I have been a flute instructor for about 20 years!  That sure sounds like a long time.  Over the years, I have developed various philosophies toward teaching and experimented with different approaches.  This blog is really just a result of my reflections on teaching flute.  If you are a music teacher, especially a private instructor, I hope that you may find this helpful to you in your teaching.  No matter what you teach, or how you teach, I hope this brings some inspiration, some laughs, and some insights.  However, do not take this as a prescription to others on how to do things.  It is not definitive.  I make no claims that what works for me will work for you or that I have all the answers.  Its just a little bit of my world that I would like to share with you.  Thanks and happy reading!
