Emma is a second year Bachelor of Music student at the Australian National University, majoring in classical flute performance, who received her Associate of Trinity College London (ATCL) performance diploma in 2015. Emma has been learning flute for 12 years, currently under the tutelage of flautist Sally Walker, and in this time, has performed in a vast range of solo and group settings including concert bands, pit orchestras, orchestras, and other chamber ensembles.
In 2018, Emma received the Whitworth-Roach Scholarship from the ANU School of Music for excellence in performance and, in turn, participated in many performance opportunities throughout the year including a workshop with French historical flautist Georges Barthel. She was also invited to perform with the Canberra Symphony Orchestra, member of the Macquarie Symphony Orchestra, guest performance with the Canberra Youth Orchestra, and invitation to perform at the Austrian Embassy and Government House.
Outside of the musical performance realm, Emma has gained practical insight into what it takes and what it means to thrive as a professional in the music industry through being a Sydney Symphony Orchestra Young Ambassador in 2018. In 2019, as the recipient of the BodyMinded Tertiary Scholarship with the Sydney Alexander Technique, Emma will undertake a 12-month program where, at the conclusion, will be a professional BodyMinded Practitioner. She would love to share her knowledge with students and colleagues to decrease the amount of overuse injuries that occur within musicians and help them enjoy playing their instrument to the fullest capacity.
Emma is a very enthusiastic teacher and loves being given the opportunity to foster the love for music and creativity in others as her teachers have done for her. Emma therefore aims to teach her students a strong foundation in technique to provide them with the versatility to explore the multifaceted directions that music may pull them in.
