Is your child frustrated and confused trying to learn flute in their school band? Music is often taught using abstract concepts that leave students guessing…
Another teacher might tell your child to "make a beautiful sound" …and they'll be left wondering what a beautiful sound even sounds like and how to actually make that happen.
At Mind Body Music Academy, our teaching is different—we give clear, straightforward guidance that makes learning the flute feel easy.
We will SHOW your child a beautiful sound, ask THEM to describe it in their own words, and teach them exactly what to do with their body to produce that beautiful sound.
Sounds way easier, right? … It is.
That's why our parents consistently say…
Their child is engaged during their lessons
Their child is motivated to practice at home
They were surprised by how fast their child improved
Their child is thriving in band and gained confidence as a result
Their child loves their flute lessons!
But don't just take our word for it! Check out what our clients are saying.
WE SUPPORT YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING AND AT HOME PRACTICE
WEEKLY 50-MINUTE LESSONS
Most teachers who offer shorter lessons send kids home to learn new music on their own. Our longer lessons give us time to go through assignments and learn new music, which helps eliminate practice frustration.
CUSTOMIZED PRACTICE PLANS
Our practice plans help take the guesswork out of practicing. After each lesson, you'll receive a custom practice plan, shared with you digitally. Your child will know exactly what and how to practice in order to progress.
DIGITAL RESOURCE LIBRARY ACCESS
As a studio member, you'll have exclusive access to our digital resource library filled with unique activities, guides, and information. You'll be able to support your child's learning, even with no musical experience!
WE HELP YOUR CHILD IMPROVE THEIR PLAYING AND GAIN CONFIDENCE
EASY TO UNDERSTAND INSTRUCTION
At Mind Body Music Academy, your child will get clear, straightforward guidance (not abstract concepts that leave them guessing). This clarity makes learning the flute feel easy and fun!
We get to know your child individually and tailor lessons to their specific goals. Does your child want to be first chair in band? Get into All State Band or District Festival? Play a specific song? We'll make it happen.
GUIDED PRACTICE REFLECTIONS
Your child will learn to evaluate and improve their own playing through weekly practice reflections. This simple system helps kids develop the #1 skill of deliberate practice, which translates to all areas of life.

What our clients are saying...
"My granddaughter loves Melissa's teaching. She was never able to make a sound on the flute during school band, but she made a sound within the first five minutes of our consultation with Melissa and she was so happy! For the first time, she feels successful with the flute and is able to keep up in her band program at school."
- TENA, FLUTE PARENT
"Melissa's love for music is contagious. She encourages her students to develop a passion for learning and to overcome challenges. My son took lessons with Melissa for several years and developed a strong playing technique and love for music. He is now a leader in a very demanding music program at his middle school."
