WORKING WITH THE RIGHT TEACHER
A LITTLE ABOUT MY TEACHING:
I have an unconditional belief in all my students’ abilities.
I ask a LOT of questions – You will be very engaged in every lesson!
I don’t focus on perfection at all costs… Just not my thing.
I focus on substance, the reasons why playing the flute is insanely cool.
I help my students reach their goals, not mine.
I always explain why. If I assign you something you’ll know exactly why you’re playing it and what we’re exploring together.
I’m straightforward and upfront in my approach, I shy away from vague imagery and flowery language.
I love getting super nerdy about the music and will happily get my students excited about it so we can nerd out together.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"Chelsea Tanner has been one of the most empowering teachers in my life. She has completely transformed the way I think about music and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to study with her. Chelsea is incredibly easy to work with and is able to form her teaching in a way that is most advantageous to each individual student. I have grown so much as a musician during my short time studying with her, and I will forever be thankful to have experienced her passion and drive for teaching."
— Mia Kilker, Crane School of Music
About the fundamental eBooks:
“I am in awe of Dr. Tanner’s brilliance as an artist-mentor. Her deep character, intelligence, and humanity are demonstrated in all of her endeavors. These teaching gems are ingeniously crafted and will, surely, stand the test of time.”
Marianne Gedigian, Professor of Flute, Rice University
COMBINING MINDSET COACHING
As a certified life coach, I have equipped myself with skills that have transformed my life and my confidence when it comes to playing and performing. I present lectures on practice room empowerment, how to manage your racing mind during performances, and how to cope with performance anxiety. If you're interested in getting help with any of these aspects, we may just be the perfect fit!
If this is something you're interested in but not integrated with flute lessons, check out my online course ALL about this! It is called the Winning Mindset Academy.
