Anna is  a teacher and a performer, with a particular love of chamber music. Anna completed her BMUS degree in Flute in 2012 at the New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University Wellington and in 2017 returned to studies graduating with PGDIP in Flute Performance in 2018.

For her postgraduate diploma Anna took flute and piccolo lessons with Bridget Douglas, the leading principal flute player in New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. During her studies  she performed 1st flute in the NZSM orchestra, played chamber music in a variety of ensembles and performed a 90 minute end of year solo recital. A highlight from 2018 at University was becoming a finalist in the Body Harris Prize for best performance of a New Zealand composition at Victoria University.

Anna grew up with a very musical background. Her father is a music teacher, conductor and performer. Anna began teaching piano alongside her father at the age of 16 in Nelson. The motivation for bringing the joy of music to others was inspired by his passion and enthusiasm. She has been teaching flute, piano and recorder in Wellington for 6 years. Anna also teaches preschool music classes in Island Bay from 0-4 year olds.

Here is a link to some of my performance from my postgraduate diploma recital. On my youtube channels I have created many playlists for my students of exam repertoire and duets, along with preschool music education videos. Feel free to check out my channel and subscribe. Here is a few of my reccommended playlists.

Teaching Info

Anna enjoys teaching  Flute to people of any age from beginner to advanced level on the Flute. She also teaches beginner recorder and piano. She has a 6 month old baby and also has experience in Early Childhood  education and nannying giving her a passion for teaching the very young beginner.

Anna likes to help students have a strong foundation in tone and technique, and will put children through exams to an advanced level if they wish. Her main priority is that students enjoy playing the flute, and she  does not put pressure on children to do exams if they do not want to. But she will encourage confidence building through performance opportunities in the form of student concerts, student orchestras,  duets and chamber music.
