Private Instruction in Flute
Private flute lessons are taught by Denise Nolan. They consist of twelve 45-minute lessons offered each semester and are open to majors and non-majors. Private instruction is based on fundamentals of flute playing as well as stressing musicality and the enjoyment of playing. One-on-one instruction allows total individuality of teaching and learning. Those flutists who have reached an appropriate level of playing are encouraged to join Monadnock Flutes, the university-community flute choir.
Monadnock Flutes is a university-community flute choir, founded and directed by Denise Nolan. Originally begun as an enhancement to Franklin Pierce private instruction, it now has a solid community-based membership in addition to university participation. The choir utilizes most instruments in the flute family including piccolo, C-flute, alto and bass flutes. The group rehearses weekly each Thursday evening and performs on and off campus. It is open to majors and non-majors by audition.
