Hi-I’m Jeiran (pronounced Jay-Ron). I’m a Midwesterner with Azerbaijani, Ukrainian, and Hungarian heritage practicing a non-toxic, and eco-concious lifestyle in the beautiful Cache Valley of Utah. I was born in Michigan, and have lived in Connecticut, New York City, Madison and DePere/Green Bay Wisconsin, Minnesota, Cleveland, Ohio, and most recently, spent 8 years in Iowa City, Iowa.
I started playing the flute at age 9 in 4th grade. I love performing as a soloist, on piccolo and alto flute, in mixed chamber ensembles, and in orchestras and new music ensembles. As a pedagogue, I enjoy working with talented young musicians and amateur adult students. Lessons with me include foundation work, sight-reading, duos, and a diverse range of repertoire, especially living female composers. As technology continues to influence the arts, teaching my students how to apply their unique life skills to music including entrepreneurial and other creative skills, is a focus in my mentorship. Providing a well-rounded education as a flutist, musician and most importantly, human being, promoting flexibility, celebratinging success and failures, and building a solid work ethic are my goals with every student, regardless of age or ability.
Other than teaching and playing the flute, I am a foodie and love to eat, cook, and bake-especially chocolate and peanut butter desserts! In my spare time, I enjoy reading all genres, gardening, daily walks with my greyhound, Chai, and spending time with my family. I love to travel both domestically and internationally and I speak Azerbaijani and Russian at home, am learning Arabic, and am always looking to improve my conversational Spanish.
Thanks for stopping by!
