I love studying with Nina. Her virtuosity and enthusiasm makes her a fantastic teacher and such a joy to work with. She makes every aspect of practicing interesting, fun and worthwhile. My playing has improved leaps and bounds in just a few short months working with her. I encourage any serious flute player to take some lessons with her
I 've had years of lessons given by what I thought were good teachers. all competent performers. None was able to explain the nitty gritty of flute playing like Nina. I always felt that If I didn't "stumble" onto the right technique I would never make it, and I never did. With Nina, I know what to do to progress and succeed. Thank God and thank Nina!
I have been searching for 35 years for a technique of sound production that works. No one would tell me, not even the late great M. Rampal, who said in an interview with someone, ‘There are no secrets, just hard work.’ Well, there are secrets, it turns out. Your video on sound production has supplied the answer. I feel like Jason having just been given the Golden Fleece by Aphrodite herself!...I cannot thank you enough for spilling the beans. Please accept my sincerest thanks.
In my opinion Nina is not only one of the best flute players in the world, but she knows how to communicate and to teach. She knows how to make the complicated understandable.
For many days, I've been depressed. Because I've been told to do things the opposite way of you. And I've played for something about 7 years....But when I saw your video here, I tried it, and it worked! I'm happy, really! Because I've learned more about actually playing, of the twenty minutes I saw you, than in my seven years....Thank you
