Tess Halonen began her music career at age 11 in Las Cruces NM, studying under Jenny Paulson and Katie Sak. She has been playing flute since 1994, and she has been playing guitar and piano since 2001. After winning state and regional competitions and participating in master classes with Tadeo Coelho, Lisa VanWinkle and Melissa Colgin-Abeln, she went on to study Classical Flute Performance under Pamela Endsley, Principle of Colorado Symphony Orchestra, at the Lamont School of Music. To enhance her music education, she also studied extended flute technique with Marilyn Prestia, Assistant Principle of Colorado Symphony Orchestra. In 2005, she earned her performance degree from the University of Denver.

Since then, her musical career has involved composing, recording, performing, and teaching a variety of styles to many ages. In 2003, she opened a private flute studio, teaching lessons in home and organizing recitals. In 2006, she began working for another studio teaching Orff classes for toddlers, private guitar, piano and flute. She currently performs with local musical acts and gigs around the Denver area.

Tess teaches flute lessons to students of all ages and skill levels, as well as beginner through intermediate piano and guitar. Her teaching philosophy centers around providing a platform for the expression of creativity in a fun and focused atmosphere. She aims to provide students with the knowledge and information they need to achieve their highest musical potential. Students will be actively listening, reading, participating and engaging in the performance process. Whether they become professional musicians or not, their lives will be enriched by music. Tess believes it is the role of the music educator, to cultivate and develop the potential within each student.
