"There is no better instructional institution to which I would recommend an aspiring flutist to learn the art and craft of flute." 
--Mike Gordon, Principal Flute, Kansas City Symphony

"We couldn't ask for a better instructor for our daughter, Riley.  Mary is the perfect combination of nurturing, challenging, and inspiring. Riley's abilities have grown tremendously, and Mary has definitely exceeded our expectations as a flute instructor.  We also value Mary's professionalism and organization skills.  Riley always looks forward to her lessons!"  --Heather England

"Our family has had several flute instructors throughout the years. Most have been very good, but Mary has been exceptional. My daughters have grown more under her instruction than with any other teacher. They respect her as a musician and enjoy her as an instructor and friend. As the family scheduler, she’s easy for me to work with too. We highly recommend working with Mary!"
