Polly Hansen, Flute Teacher

Private lessons for the beginner, intermediate and advanced student.

Slide 1

Private studio on the North Shore in Deerfield, Illinois.

Whether you are a school student or adult amateur, private lessons provide the direction and guidance you need to advance and grow as an expressive and talented musician.

Why Private Lessons?

Perfecting the art of flute playing requires expert instruction for optimal balance, hand position, breath control and finger technique with the greatest efficiency and least amount of stress.

Performance Opportunities

All my students have an opportunity to perform at least once a year in a student recital.
