Dr. Jennifer Lapple Flute Studio

Members of the George Mason University, School of Music, Lapple flute studio enjoy a variety of musical and educational opportunities!

Students are active in ensembles, chamber music, private lessons, recitals and master classes within the university in addition to participating in community competitions, ensembles, teaching and performing opportunities. 

Dr. Lapple works with music education majors, in particular, to secure positions teaching at the Judith Lapple Summer Woodwind Camp & Music Festival and in working with private students from her waiting list.  This offers current students real-world teaching experience while pursuing their undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Music performance majors focus heavily on

technique, tone development and artistry

through varied performance opportunities

and required participation in competitions,

recitals, chamber and large ensembles. 

Performance majors dedicate several hours

a day to practice and performance and

often pursue graduate degrees in music
