As a sought-after pedagogue, Lisa’s teaching utilizes a personal approach that emphasizes providing students with the necessary skills, insights and motivation so that students can take ownership of their musical development, discover their personal musical voice, and become independent musicians.

Flute Community

Lisa enjoys creating flute communities by bringing flutists together who can learn from and engage with one another and be inspired by the experience.  This interest began when she was competition chair of the Mid-South Flute Society.  During her tenure as Program Chair and President, she endeavored to ensure that all levels of flutists benefitted from distinctive programming. 


At Austin Peay State University, she has hosted 10-day mini-residencies with William Bennett, Lorna McGhee and Rhonda Larsen, who came to campus as Acuff Chair Holders.  The William Bennett residency led to the formation of the week-long William Bennett Summer Academy of which she is the Director and teaching assistant.
