My name is Emica Taylor and I am in my third year of studies for my Bachelor of Music majoring in Classical Flute Performance at Te Kōkī – The New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington. I am currently studying under NZSO’s fabulous flutist, Kirstin Eade. In addition to solo flute repertoire, I also provide valuable insight into orchestral and ensemble performance. I am in the Wellington Youth Orchestra and performed with them as their concerto competition winner for 2022, the National Youth Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Air Force Band. I have been playing casually with Orchestra Wellington since 2022, and casually with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for recordings and concerts since 2022.
In my spare time, I love reading books, strength training, and enjoy going on outdoor adventures with my friends and family. Those closest to me would describe me as bubbly, hard-working, and kind.
I love catering my teaching to the musical goals you want to achieve. Lessons can look quite different whether we’re jamming out to your favourite pop song, performing solos, or playing duets, and I also love accompanying students on the piano while they perform on the flute! I believe foundational skills are very important so I’ll always be wanting to help you improve tone, technique, musicality, and theory knowledge. Being a kids and youth leader for over 8 years and having lots of involvement with babysitting work, I have plenty of experience dealing with children and love to make lessons engaging and fun!
