Master Teacher Dr. Lea Pearson has been training students, performers, and teachers in innovative techniques for over 30 years. Dr. Pearson holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in flute performance, a Master’s Degree in performance practice from Stanford University, and was a Fulbright Scholar at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.
One of the first Licensed Body Mapping Educators in the world, Dr. Pearson authored the acclaimed book “Body Mapping for Flutists: What Every Flute Teacher Needs to Know About the Body.” She has helped thousands of musicians recover their ability to play with joy and ease with her sold-out workshops and master classes.
Her influence among flute teachers is legendary. Guiding international performers from Brazil to China, Dr. Pearson has taught at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, The US Air Force Band, and over than 100 colleges, conservatories, military bases, conferences, camps, and festivals around the globe. Her work as a Fulbright Scholar prepared her to teach musicians the missing piece - exactly how to play freely and efficiently to create the artistry they desire.
With a career as an active performer, college teacher, and a Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, Dr. Pearson applies her vast expertise to solving the music industry’s hidden secret: the pain and anxiety caused by traditional methods of instruction. Her chosen legacy is to transform the system of music education so all musicians can fully and freely express their artistic voice.
