I’m Fernando Perez. I'm a professional flute player and instructor in Boise, Idaho. I play Principal Flute with the Boise Baroque, have taught at music camps like Boise State Music Chamber Camp, received national recognition performing with America's prestigious honor groups.

However, I don't just only play flute. I love playing on my Nintendo Switch, dancing to traditional latino bailes, and exploring the world when I can. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Music and am currently studying Accounting as well.

Soo.. Why do I teach?

When people ask me about my favorite part of the week, I immediately say, "Teaching flute lessons."

The main reason I teach lessons is to help students unlock doors to friendships, opportunities, and scholarships. When I was part of NYO-USA, a prestigious high school honor group in the US, I noticed that over half of the students went on to Ivy League schools, incorporated their musical characteristics into their studies and cherished their musical experiences growing up.

I know that 95% of my students won't study music in college, but I promise that learning music will cultivate their perseverance, grit, and patience. I understand that each student has their own unique interests, both musically and non-musically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach online?

No, I do not. My responsibility is to make sure the student is getting all the potential they have to become successful. I have noticed that online lessons don't take that route.

May I listen to the lesson?

Due to the layout of my home, only students are allowed to remain in the studio. Parents may enter inside if we need to have a conversation.

Do you travel for lessons?

Due to my busy schedule, I do not. I only travel for students who live a mile away from me.

Is my child too young to start flute?

Never! There are curved headjoints that allow the students to reach for the keys easier.

Do you teach to adult students?

I regret that I don't. I specialize in K-12th grade. If you need any recommendations for adult flute teachers, I can help.
