Linden Wu


Teaching Philosophy

I believe that music education greatly enriches the lives of all students. Learning how to appreciate and understand music allows people to better enjoy the world around them. In my studio, we will accomplish this through learning how to play the flute. I focus on the mechanics behind producing a great tone, developing technical proficiency, and mindful practicing. Through those building blocks, students will then be able to begin learning how to apply musicianship to their own playing.
