A GOOD TEACHER  -  is one who provides the student with proper methods and techniques, while providing structure and infinite knowledge of the instrument.  A good teacher allows freedom of expression, by listening and providing pathways for excellence, i.e. which method book(s) to use, inspiring repertoire, etc.

​As a flutist, pianist and teacher for over 48 years, I believe it's essential to teach more than just technique.  You really are only as good as your tone!  So, why not tap into your inner self and           become the true musician you want to be!

 Anyone can play with passion and personal expression!.

"A Delight!" Lucid Dawn, Lafayette, CA

NIka is an enthusiastic, exuberant teacher and human being.  She is perfect to inspire children to play music. From day one with my daughter, she just jumped right in and started learning pieces she could play proudly right away.  We are so pleased to have our darling spend time with his lovely woman and so proud of the swift progress she has made.

"Great for Beginners!", Adam Noel, Joaquin Moraga Int. School, Moraga, CA.

Nika has taught many of my young flute players.  She gives them confidence and correct technique, which is a double-plus!  Thank!
