Apoorva Rangan shares her experience with Teresa's teaching - Apoorva, 2014 First Place Winner of NFA High School Young Artist, Flutist with SFYO, former principal flute SJYS, ECYS, CYS, senior at Harker Academy and Future Yale Student.
Teresa's kind-but-firm, cross-cultural, and intensely personalized style of teaching is a rare gem. As my primary teacher over the last 6 years, Teresa has pushed me to go beyond my self-conceived boundaries with immense positivity and support. With her help, I'm finally able to see myself as an individual and an artist.

What I love is the unexpected element in each lesson, where Teresa's supportive individuality shines through. She is not afraid to go beyond traditional techniques, though her rigorous technical exercises help set a backbone for good flute playing. Bongos were used to teach me tempo, whistle tones were used to teach me nuance, and anecdotes were used to remind me that music is a journey of fun, growth, and sharing. And Teresa's interest in her students goes beyond the musical. One of her main goals as a teacher is to give her students confidence, to motivate them into playing more challenging repertoire, memorizing pieces, and participating in competitions and masterclasses. I learned from Teresa that the act of "putting yourself out there" is a victory in itself. Without her guidance, I would never have learned the skills to believe in myself as an artist and a person. Flute can seem like a lonely activity, but with someone like Teresa by my side, it's become a joyous team endeavor.
"...Teresa, she has had such a remarkable influence on my growth both as a musician and as a person. Her musical expertise and passion to share her love of music with others are apparent in each private lesson. She has an incredible ability to note specific details about embouchure, technique, intonation, and tone color while simultaneously ensuring that the overall character of the piece, whether it be a beautifully restrained Bach Sonata or a rhythmically fiery Piazzolla duo, is not compromised. She has been a consistent source of support and guidance through many of my musical adventures. Over the years, Teresa has become much more than just a flute teacher?she is a lifelong mentor, supporter, friend, and second mom to me. Teresa has such a warm, energetic, and radiant personality that allows her to form close relationships with all of her students. She is full of life and lights up any room she walks into. Having taken lessons with her for several years, I can say with certainty that she is truly one of a kind, and anyone who gets the opportunity to work with her is incredibly lucky."
