Read what some of Jan's students and parents of students have to say about her:

Jan offers a wealth of experience to her students and an extensive knowledge of flute literature, both solo and orchestral. She has an innate sense of musicality that she ably communicates to her students in helping them make the most crucial decisions about where each phrase or section of the music is going. Her technical expertise on the flute and mastery of all aspects of music make her an excellent choice for students wanting to be serious students of the instrument.

-- Christa Scott

Jan has been my flute instructor for 10 years, and they have been such incredibly growing years. Her expertise is evident, and her empathy and sympathy for her students is so incredibly meaningful. Her love and devotion to her students and to music is one that every teacher should seek to emulate.

reina and jannetteSome time ago, my daughter was rather dispirited with playing the flute, due to her lack of progress. I realized a change of direction was needed in her musical life, if she wanted to continue playing the flute. I changed teachers, and with Ms. Erickson's expertise and guidance, my daughter has accomplished pieces I had only marveled at. Not only is she once again inspired on flute, but Ms. Erickson has guided my daughter on piccolo as well. Ms. Erickson is very patient and positive with her students. She is a devoted teacher and works hard to bring out beautiful music from each student. Ms. Erickson is not only a talented flutist but a gifted teacher as well. My daughter now has a stronger technique, better tone, and smarter musicianship than ever before. I cannot sing enough praises for this gifted teacher!
