“My daughter has been playing the flute since 5th grade. She asked can she stop playing the flute in middle school because she was no longer interested. In the spring of her 9th grade year she started taking flute lessons with Dr. Gilbert. After her first lesson she had a big smile on her face and I asked how was it. She said, “It was good, I really like her!” Dr. Gilbert’s exuberant and joyful spirit helped my daughter to love playing her flute. Dr. Gilbert allowed her to choose genres of music she was interested in and that changed my daughter’s perspective on playing. I don’t have to make her practice anymore, she does it on her own now.”
