    The United States Army Band, "Pershing's Own"

    Lots of exciting happenings around these parts! 

    -Drew and I bought and moved into our first home, a cute little fixer upper in Burke, at the end of April. My parents were so great to come and help us paint for a week, and we've been tearing down walls and making huge messes ever since. Next up: kitchen demo and remodel!

    -The Fremder Flute Studio has finished out a successful school year, with many students recieving top marks at their annual solo and ensemble contest! Great job everyone. Summer lessons will not be taking place this year for good reason, but we will start back up later in September. Have a great summer everyone!

    -I am SO pleased to announce that I won a piccolo audition with The United States Army Band, "Pershing's Own" at the end of May! I will be joining the ceremonial band as soon as I graduate from basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood in September. I ship out on June 28, so keep me in your thoughts and prayers! 

    Winning a position with Pershing's Own has been "the dream" since Drew started his job with the band back in 2013. To work along side my husband, our friends, and all the other outstanding musicians and soldiers in TUSAB is an honor and a priviledge. I'm thankful for the opportunity to serve my country while doing what I love. 

  • Summer lessons

    We are well into April, and the end of the 2014-2015 school year will be here before we know it!

    Most students find themselves struggling to feel at home with their instrument at the beginning of the school year. Playing the flute involves so many different muscles that we aren't necessarily accostomed to using, that they require upkeep (practicing!!!) to prevent loss of progress over the summer.

    Summer lessons are a wonderful idea for students who not only want to prevent backtracking, but for those who aspire to start the school year feeling confident in the hard work that they have put in. Band programs and musicians alike are highly competitive! A good way to make quick progress and jump ahead of the pack is to maintain your flute studies during the summer.
