Meet Your Teacher:

Dr. Chelsea Tanner

Hi there, I'm Chelsea. I hope you'll join me this December to focus on your excerpts so you can take your auditions to the next level. Do you want to learn a process for diving into these excerpts so you can truly KNOW you are doing everything you can to be prepared? This program is just for you! I will break down each excerpt phrase by phrase, discuss exercises that will help every excerpt, and discuss how you can work on the skills that these excerpts require. 

I have been teaching flutists for over a decade. I have taught students of all ages from beginners to the collegiate level. Most recently I have served on the faculties of SUNY Potsdam's Crane School of Music and Penn State University.  I have fallen in love with the process of learning the flute and I hope to share anything and everything to help you reach your goals. Having taken dozens auditions, and studying with teachers such as Jeanne Baxtresser and Marianne Gedigian, I have such a wealth of knowledge that I am so eager to share with you!

The reviews are in!

When I signed up, I was hoping I could learn how to have a more virtuosic, even technique on flute. I did not realize how much I would learn and improve in every aspect of my flute playing in addition to my technique! I now have a totally changed mindset when I practice, allowing myself to approach every challenge, with curiosity, as a learning experience. In addition, I learned how to make any passage truly musical that I may be practicing. This makes me feel so much more driven to practice- and ready to learn something new every time I pick up my flute! I have also gained a greater sense of self-confidence in regards to my flute playing, and my mindset while practicing and playing has been changed for the better. In addition, being able to look back to all of the packets and zoom talks now is a great way to remind me of all that I learned and reinforce the new concepts! I would definitely say there's never been a two weeks I've ever learned so much about the flute as during Flute Boot Camp, and I'm so grateful for the experience!! I would highly recommend Flute Boot Camp to any flute player!!
