I LOVE visiting university classes either in person or through the Internet. I think it's SO IMPORTANT that college students learn from people who are out in the field doing what they'll most likely be doing in a few years.

"Dr. Emeneth's presentation was so beneficial for not only my flute students, but the entire student body. She tailored her presentation to engage the variety of students in the room including performance majors, music education majors, and music minors. I highly recommend her class to every professor scheduling guest artists for their undergraduate students!"
- Dr. Mary Matthews, Assistant Professor of Flute, Tennessee Tech University

I offer a variety of topics for single presentations or a multi-day series.
