Francesca Leo is a New York City-based flutist, entrepreneur, and educator.  She has been teaching private lessons for eight years, working primarily with the beginning and intermediate flutists. All of Francesca’s former students have received the highest ratings on their solo performances in both the District and State levels of the MSBOA Solo and Ensemble competitions, have been accepted into the Michigan All-State Honors Band, and have excelled in every aspect of their flute playing.

Francesca has an extensive background of research in performing arts health and musculoskeletal performance-based injuries, so she is extremely attentive to her students’ needs and makes sure that all of her students are playing with proper hand position and posture to prevent performance-based injuries.  She encourages all students to take every audition and performance opportunity available to them.  Francesca has a passion for teaching and supports and encourages her students in every way she can.
