    Though I had been participating in school ensembles since fourth grade, I started taking lessons with Erin about half way through my sophomore year of high school, which is significantly later than most of my peers. In just two and a half years, I have, with a great deal of Erin's help, achieved so many of my musical and academic goals! In this time I won seats in both Philharmonia Winds and the Greater Hartford Youth Wind Ensemble at the Hartt Community Division, a seat in the CMEA Eastern Region Concert Band, and was selected to the ASBDA Honors Symphonic Band on both flute and piccolo -- this was all made possible by the skills that I have learned from Erin. Erin's guidance was also indispensable during my college application and audition experience. Beyond her knowledge of the flute repertoire required for collegiate auditions, Erin is also extremely knowledgeable when it comes to preparing for and managing many stressful auditions. I was accepted to every music program I auditioned for, and received music scholarships from each program as well. Erin goes above and beyond for each and every one of her students, and ensures that their flute education is tailored to their specific goals and needs. She makes many music making opportunities outside of lessons available to students as well. This kind of dedication is also extended to members of the Flute Loops flute choir as well making sure there are ample performance opportunities for all studio members. Erin's kindness, musical ability, vast knowledge of all things flute, and supportive approach to teaching really makes her stand out as a flute teacher. Whether you're interested in taking lessons, or participating in a flute choir, you can be sure that you will have a fun and valuable learning experience with Erin!

    I hired Erin to play her beautiful flute for my mother’s memorial celebration, and I cannot say enough about how much she added to the event. Her warmth, caring and creativity before the event; her help in planning just the right music; and her wonderful performance during the program all added together to create a special and memorable experience. I received so many comments and compliments after the celebration on just how lovely the music was, and how perfectly planned and orchestrated it was. I would highly recommend Erin as a talented performer who will add joy, soul and meaning to any event.

    "Thumbtack" helped me find Erin for my wedding ceremony this past June-her talent, passion, flexibility, and kindness were out of this world. I was married on my grandfathers hay farm; not only was Erin up for the challenge (limited electricity and a super wet field-it rained A LOT in June) she also helped my piano duo vision come true and pointed me in the flute/piano duo package (thank you Mike!!). My guests were blown away by the ceremony music: "where did you find them?! They play beautifully!" and many asked if there were ceremony soundtracks for purchase! I cannot express how much I truly enjoyed working with Erin (through emails due to distance) up to my big day-when we FINALLY met. Erin even brought her own equipment and worked with our not-so-great J.O.P. to incorporate music during our ceremony. So...if you're considering musicians for your wedding and want someone or even a duo (as we chose) who makes you go "wow" after listening to various pieces-I highly and sincerely recommend you look no further. Thank you so much Erin and Mike, for creating such a heart warming & special atmosphere for mine and Nate's wedding day.

    When our son started lessons with Erin he was already doing well with his playing in school - but you took it to a WHOLE other level! We also appreciated your kindness, supportiveness, and encouragement so that he always looked forward to his lessons. Thank you for instilling him a love of EXCELLENCE in music!
