 Jan Michael's online NASF Apprentice Academy is for players to discover their own potential with the flute.  While it includes a variety of methods, approaches, and techniques for players to more fully express themselves, studies are also tailored to each student’s specific goals and vision.

With a structure of 3 stages of apprenticeship that include Apprentice, Master Apprentice, and Graduate Apprentice, this program is open to players of all levels from new players to the very experienced.  For example, some of his apprentices have become well known performing/recording artists. Others wanted to master the art of playing for personal enjoyment.  While other students complete this program to become better flute instructors.
