“To be completely honest, Ms. Sandy is like the young and energetic version of everybody’s favorite grandma, the one that gives them cookies, cocoa, and gifts every time they see you. I started taking lessons when I was seven, and from the get go, I was sold on playing the flute. She invested her time into making sure I fully enjoyed playing. She was not only a good teacher to me, but a friend too, always willing to listen to my rants. She taught me not only how to play the flute, but valuable lessons in life, and that it’s ok to follow what you desire, and not what others want for you. She is probably one of the only teachers in all my life that has taught me something valuable in my life, and I plan to take her teachings with me for as far into the future as I can.”

“Sandy is more than a dynamic flutist, she is an educator who is extremely effective. Every lesson with her was catered for me with such care and detail that allowed me to take away extremely useful practice skills that I still use today. Sandy was my first ideal role model of a professional and accomplished musician. She has without a doubt encouraged, motivated and challenged me to great lengths. Any student considering a future in music would be fortunate to study with her.”
