"Last year, I was so very fortunate to enroll... Ana and Amanda are two amazing musicians with the great ability to teach and encourage. They were able to accelerate my flute development way beyond my expectations. All this in a fun, low stress, non judgemental and caring way.
I highly encourage anyone that is interested in supercharging their woodwind musical abilities to seriously consider joining these two lovely ladies at their virtual woodwind academy!"
-Domingo Rocha, flute player

Frequently Asked Questions
The regular total cost for the Academy is $1447. We designed our program to be a FRACTION of the price you would pay for a similar program at a music conservatory.
Let us explain: To attend a music college, you would typically pay $50,000 PER YEAR. They're also incredibly competitive to get in to, and there aren't any quality programs we know of that are all-virtual and go-at-your-own-pace.
We felt that the world needed a program for adult learners. Whether you've been playing for 5 months or 5 years, we feel strongly that you deserve the opportunity to recieve a well-rounded education on your instrument. Does this sound good to you? Click to join our waitlist!
1. What is the total cost for the Academy?
2. What will the weekly time commitments be?
We estimate that the weekly time commitment will be 2-3 hours when you are actively working through a unit. However, it's designed to be go-at-your-own-pace, so do what feels comfortable!
We also hold office hours once per week during the Academy and have 2-3 additional live masterclasses each month. You don't have to attend live, because everything will get recorded and put in your course library!
4. For how long will I have access to the recordings?
You have access to everything for a year after you sign up! PLUS... when we open for enrollment this Spring, you immediately get access to everything as soon as you enroll!
5. Can I sign-up for just one or two units?
Yes you can! The cost for each individual session is $500, and we offer payment plans for that too. Just let us know which session/s you want to attend and we'll email you a special sign up link :)
7. How often do I get help throughout the program?
During the academy, you have access to us THE ENTIRE TIME! So in between the times we meet, you can email us clips of your playing for feedback and ask unlimited questions.
We will be there with you every step of the way making sure you are getting the support you need and all your questions answered.
