The Glenn Gould School is a small music school dedicated exclusively to performance. It offers a four year post-secondary program that leads to a Bachelor of Music degree and a two year Artist Diploma program for students who have completed a Bachelor's degree or the equivalent. The maximum number of students in the flute class is five. This enables all of the Glenn Gould flute students to participate in the orchestral and chamber music programs. Students recieve a 90 minute private lesson every week.

In addition to giving private flute lessons, Dr. Rudolph coaches chamber music and teaches an orchestral repertoire course for both flute and piccolo. She also coordinates the extensive woodwind master class program offered by the school.
