"Tessa is a wonderful teacher. Our son has worked with her since we moved to Essex, and has reached many new levels of success with her help and guidance. Highly recommended." -Ezra Veitch
Tessa began teaching flute lessons at just 15 years old, and she has continued teaching for the past 14 years. Through learning strong fundamentals at the Brattleboro Music School, rigorous classical training to earn her BA in music performance, and playing with the Burlington jazz/rock band Made by Robots, Tessa's teaching has reflected a growing understanding of the myriad ways to enjoy and appreciate playing music. Her lessons are customized to meet the needs of each student, whether that means helping them earn a seat in the orchestra or exploring improvisation and music theory. Whatever the focus, all lessons are grounded in a deeply mindful and patient approach that works well for all ages.

"Tessa showed great sensitivity to my son Tovin, and alters his lessons to meet his changing needs and interests. She is a talented musician herself and an inspiration to her students. She introduced him to a wide variety of musical styles and also composition. She has tremendous patience with her students and her love of teaching is obvious. Tovin has learned a lot from her." -Bonnie Hooper
"Tessa is a wonderful instructor. I'm so glad I found her! It's been many years since I've played the flute. She is building my technical knowledge and skill, restoring my confidence, and helping me find my voice with the flute. I'm impressed with her ability to gear each lesson towards my goals. They have been positive, enouraging and most importantly fun!" -Stephanie Heaghney
