Florence Estrin embodies the perfect combination of world-class performer and excellent teacher. Florence's flute journeys have taken her from New York City, where she studied at Music and Art High School, to teaching at University of Evansville in Indiana, to sunny Orange County California, where she is currently an active performer. Florence has graced the stages of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center; and at age 19, performed the virtuoso Ibert Flute Concerto to great acclaim with the 92nd Street Y Orchestra in New York City. Whether teaching fellow professional woodwind players or beginning flute students, Florence believes strongly in the value of building a strong flute-playing foundation; and in the importance of students learning and appreciating the entire flute family, not just the standard flute.

A native of Seoul, Korea, Jaimie Lee Mendoes started her musical studies on the piano at a very young age with the help of her mother, who was a pianist and composer. Later, at 8, she ventured out to the flute. After a few years of study, she was admitted to the prestigious Yewon School of the Arts and moved onto Seoul Arts High School. At the age of 13, she had her debut performance with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra playing Devienne's Flute Concerto No. 8 during the philharmonic's tour in Korea. When she was 20 she came to the United States, where she studied the flute with Maria Tamburrino, Jill Felber, and Jim Walker. Jaimie hopes that her videos for Virtual Sheet Music will inspire many by giving them the tools and motivation that they need to improve.
