“A patient, positive and thorough teacher, who encourages a passion for the flute and its music. She is also a wonderful, sensitive musician!” - I.Abols

“Our 15 year old daughter has been a student of Sibylle's since she was 5 years old. They share and extraordinary teacher/student relationship. It has been a delight to watch and has been a great gift to our daughter's development both musically and as a person. Hana has had much success as a musician, winning several awards: Kiwanis, the Flute Society and a national music award for the Alliance for New Music. Thank you Sibylle! Sibylle has been exceptional, developing in Hana the discipline needed to progress, while always managing an appropriate and maintainable level of practice. But Sibylle also makes the lessons fun - I often hear Hana laughing. Our highest level of recommendation for many years of wonderful teaching.”
- B.Blevis

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to truly thank you for the past eleven years. I have learned so much more than just how to play the flute and I can't express in words how much it has meant to me. Again, thank you for everything.”

“Thank you, Sibylle, for helping me to realize my potential.”
- Catharine Solomon, 17, Ontario Royal Conservatory of Music Gold Medalist 2013
