Raise your performance level in a mock audition with feedback
Dissolve nerves with zany performance games
Connect with others in small group discussions - you're not alone!
Find freedom and fun with strategies to make friends with your mind
Melissa and Carrie playfully guide students to be their best flute-playing selves! With a decade leading Flute-a-rama camp together, they are a dynamic duo whose fun and encouraging teaching style brings out the best in each student. They enjoy creating interactive workshops where students help teach each other.
Melissa Lindon has taught students of all ages and levels for over 25 years, helping them find their musical voice. She serves on the flute faculties of Washington Adventist University and Howard Community College, and teaches private flute and piano lessons in Takoma Park. An active freelancer in the DC area, she is flutist and founder of the Patagonia Winds (wind quintet). She holds Flute Performance degrees from Boston University (M.Mus., B.Mus.) and Southern Methodist University (A.C.). Also a certified yoga teacher (E-RYT500), she brings special attention to breathing and body awareness in her flute teaching, and enjoys leading “Yoga for Musicians” workshops.
Carrie Rose, flutist and composer, has been teaching for over 20 years, and has a thriving private flute studio in Takoma Park. Diverse musical pursuits include freelancing with regional orchestras, grooving for folk dances, and wailing out avant-garde chamber music in the flute collective, inHALE. She produces the Origins Concert Series (a hub for adventurous music-seekers), has received numerous grants for her performing and composing from the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, and in DC’s City Paper, she was named a “favorite local composer”. Rose earned Master and Bachelor of Music degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music.
Are you wondering how to audition for All-State / All-County Ensembles?
You must be enrolled in a school band program, so talk to your band director to sign up for an audition.
Feel free to participate in our workshop without actually doing the audition. If this is the case for you, contact us to receive audition material.
