My private studio is open to all ages. My current students range from age 11 to 25. I love sharing my love of flute and musical experiences with new students. If you are considering registering for private lessons, please contact me so we can set up a trial lesson. If you are interested in pursuing music as a career, contact me for a Trial Lesson at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor or Southwestern University.

Lessons are offered on a weekly basis for either 25- or 60-minute blocks and can be scheduled at your school, in Pflugerville, or ONLINE! I currently have a waitlist for lessons, so please contact me via email for availability. 

During lessons, we will:

  • Set goals to help you grow as a musician

  • Learn how to develop a beautiful flute tone

  • Practice technical exercises to get your fingers moving faster

  • Develop specific solutions that are JUST FOR YOU! that help you overcome any issues you may be having with learning the flute

  • Learn how to develop an artistic interpretation of flute repertoire

  • Plan performance opportunities to share your hard work and talent

  • Learn mental strategies to perform with confidence


If you are interested in having me as your cheerleader and guide for the flute, contact me to enroll in private lessons today!

Student and Parent Reviews:

"My daughter had her first virtual lesson today with Dr. Janysek and I think (especially for a first online session) it went really well! They were able to really dig into the material, play their instruments back and forth, and she gave my daughter some great pointers on how to practice strategically, too. I'm looking forward to seeing her improve further, even while we're staying close to home!"

"Our experiences with Dr. Janysek have been wonderful. She is so positive and encouraging but pushes my daughter to be her best and challenges her in every lesson."

"My Daughter loves her private lessons and has learned a lot from Hilary."

"Dr. J is fantastic with my energetic 10 year old boy."

"My 6th grade daughter loves and looks forward to her flute lessons with Dr. Janysek. She is learning a lot about the instrument and how to play."

"Dr. Janysek is an excellent teacher. I can notice the improvement in my daughter’s playing,

She enjoys her classes and looks forward to them every week."

"Dr. Janysek is fantastic!!!!!!! My kiddo is very shy and is brought out of her shell during lessons. It's music to my ears, literally!!!" 

"I would like to start with my son's ability. I was afraid as if he can even hold a flute properly and run the fingers. His fear created a sense of confusion for me. But when we made the decision to have Hilary be his coach, I was thrilled by his performance in such a short period. He plays now so flawlessly so much that he even decided to continue with flute instrument as his go to music. I am so lucky to have my son taught by Hilary Janysek."

"Dr. Janysek is a wonderful teacher. She has given me comments/exercises that have really improved my playing after just a few lessons."
