Lessons with Emma
First and foremost, as a teacher, I believe that my job is to support the individual growth of each student. We use the study of music to develop discipline, a strong work ethic and self-confidence.
I teach primarily in the Suzuki Method. Please visit my Teaching Studio page for more information about lessons. You can also download and read my Studio Policies 2015-2016. The Suzuki Method, or Talent Education, was developed by violinist Shinichi Suzuki and based on his observations of how children learn. In 1946, early in the Japanese recovery from World War II, he founded the Talent Education Institute, the first Suzuki method music school, in Matsumoto, Japan. He wanted to help the children who had experienced the devastating effects of the war. In this way, love became one of the cornerstones of Suzuki philosophy. He believed that music is a means of developing a “beautiful heart and a noble spirit.”
I teach out of my home in Henderson, NV. The studio is diverse, consisting of very young beginners, age 3, to advanced high school seniors auditioning for admittance into 4-year university music programs. There is also a strong contingent of adult students, ranging from beginners, to those returning to the flute after an extended hiatus, to amateurs adults that participate in community ensembles. I use the Suzuki Method and am a certified Suzuki instructor.Parent Testimonial “My daughter,Christin, has been a student of Emma Pease-Byron for seven years. When she started in middle school, she had only a year of experience with the flute. During her lessons with Emma, Christin developed a passion for the flute and has even decided to pursue a major in music with an emphasis in flute performance. Emma’s expertise in technique and her ability to relate to her students helped Christin to become a confident and talented flutist. Emma is truly a part of our family and we are grateful for her warm, welcoming teaching style.” – Jackie
