Phoenix Area Flute Teachers
Mrs. Liz Rewolinski has been teaching flute for 18 years. A native of Milwaukee, WI, she studied music education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and studied flute with Robert Goodberg, Frank Suetholz, Amy Hartman and Michelle Churchill. Liz served as a youth clinician for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and was an adjudicator at many area music festivals, including the UWM Honors Band Festival. She is a past member of MENC and Chicago Flute Club.
Liz's students have won many awards and honors and are chosen for prestigious musical groups/competitions, including AZ-ABODA Regionals and All-State, Tri-M Music Honor Society, Solo and Ensemble, Drum Corps International, and East Valley Youth Symphony (to name a few). Two of her students are now serving as drum major and section leader, respectively, of the Sacramento Mandarins of DCI and their Division 1 school marching bands! Additionally, most of her students sit at or near the top of their sections in their school bands and orchestras. Many of Liz's students have taken lessons with her for years - so it comes as no surprise that she refers to them as her "flute family."
Liz tailors flute lessons to meet the student's skill level and musical interests. She will gladly help students with school band/orchestra music (and piccolo instruction) if they need or want a little extra guidance. Liz also welcomes adult students whether they are beginners who finally have the time to learn an instrument, or if they're getting back into music after a hiatus! Liz makes flute lessons fun and engaging for everyone in a caring, patient environment.
