Donna Olkowski teaches flute lessons in the Suzuki Method, which focuses on playing by ear to allow students to develop technique, intonation, and enjoyment of playing music.
An essential component of the Suzuki Method is to create a positive environment for learning music and fostering character. During each lesson, students are guided through the essentials of good flute performance and engaging repertoire, along with a review of previous material in order to apply it to new music challenges. Each lesson plan is paced according to student needs, learning level, and performance goals. As a member of the Flute Studio, students are encouraged to prepare and perform pieces at the Flute Studio recitals and annual concerts. Students are also given the opportunity to volunteer for holiday performances at local community centers.
Flute Ensembles & Flute Choir.
In addition to private flute lesson instruction, students are encouraged to demonstrate their proficiency by assuming leadership roles in school ensembles. Students are encouraged to audition for music ensembles such the Dearborn Youth Symphony and the Dearborn Youth Symphony Intermediate Flute Choirs.
Workshops & Music Programs.
As part of the Flute Studio engagements, Donna Olkowski invites an experienced clinician for a two-day intensive Flute Workshop. The workshop provides students with a unique opportunity to develop as musicians, engage with peers, and enjoy an intensive masterclass experience. Flute students and teachers practicing the Suzuki method are invited to attend the Flute Workshop as Suzuki Observation time. During the Flute Workshop, students are introduced to new perspectives from our talented clinicians.
Flute Studio students will learn about upcoming music camp programs in which they can live, learn, and perform with young musicians from all over the world. These experiences help students grow as musicians and artists. The Flute Studio helps to prepare students for the audition process and educate them about what to expect from music camp programs.
