A Word from your Instructor:
Working with adults at Summerkeys is a magical experience. People have come to study with me from all over the country, either once or year after year. Either way, having so much time to think about the flute always changes their playing and their idea of themselves as musicians. I have met the most inspiring people in Lubec!
I am very passionate about music and love to teach and share my knowledge with others. My teaching style is positive and encouraging, which creates a supportive and upbeat learning environment. In lessons, there will be an emphasis on increasing breath control, creating a beautiful tone, learning expressive phrasing, as well as improving technique. Often my students are surprised at how much they have learned in such a short amount of time. Prospective students are welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns. I’m happy to help and look forward to meeting you at SummerKeys.
Carol Arthur, Alberta Canada
I want to thank you with all my heart for all you gave me this summer at Summerkeys. Wow. You changed everything I was doing and it has made a huge improvement. I was doing so much wrong and you corrected it. You are extremely organized and you work in a logical manner. I am doing your practice warm ups and I love having a plan. I am getting better too. I have more confidence in my playing and relax more. You are the best thing to happen to me and on top of that you are a very nice person.

Andrea Maurer has the gift of being able to distill the essence of a lifetime of flute playing into lessons that are demanding, fun and helpful. She is an encouraging and exacting teacher who brings out the best in her students. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, her class is guaranteed to take you to a whole other place!
Paul Reinstein, Jonesport, Maine
Andrea makes such a great impression on everyone that she is associated with. When I return to Summer Keys, I intentionally go when she is instructing. She has the uncanny ability to make learning music a lot of fun and most enjoyable. Even the most nervous student relaxes, has fun and improves. She would be an awesome instructor in any endeavor.
I still remember the very first day I arrived in Lubec and how the light, the air and the view of the water all took my breath away. I had no idea it would be the beginning of such a long and wonderful relationship. Teaching at SummerKeys has given me the opportunity to collaborate with wonderful and supportive colleagues and work with an amazing group of students. Lubec’s beauty inspires us all and SummerKeys is a place where your passion for music can thrive.
