“I enjoy taking flute lessons from Ms. Lupinek! She is very patient and always gives me feedback in an effort to help me grow. If I am struggling with my music, I know I can always ask her for help, and she works through it with me. I know taking lessons from Ms. Lupinek has helped me become a better flutist!” ~Ayden, junior high region orchestra flutist

“Tori has been a huge help to me in my beginner flute class. She’s great with the kids and has great pedagogical information! As a clarinet player, I appreciated learning from such a fantastic player and colleague on how to improve my students’ (and my own) tone qualities, intonation, vibrato, and more!! I highly recommend her as a masterclass teacher and private lesson teacher!” ~Hannah Fry, Associate Band Director, Manvel Junior High
