Whether you have just gotten your first Native flute and haven't
played a note, or you've been playing for some time and are looking to
improve technique, or you are a seasoned professional, looking for
inspiration and guidance in your music, private lessons with a highly
respected teacher and performer of Native and world flutes is just as
far away as your computer.
No matter your level of playing, helping others find life-long joy
in creating music is Cornell's main goal. Lessons are tailored
individually for your own aspirations, goals and needs. Cornell's
easy-going style creates a comfortable environment, working at a speed
that feels right to you.
What do you need for music lessons over Skype?
- A computer with a camera, microphone, and speakers.
While any speakers or microphone that work with your computer will
be OK, ideally, using headphones during a lesson is helpful to control
cross-talk and "cutting out". (Cornell uses a USB headset that
combines headphones and microphone.)
- Skype software (free version works fine).
- Lighting in the room should be from in front of you so that
your face and fingers are well-lit.
