The Flute in Education


As a teacher and flute educator, Chris is much in demand. Currently she is Professor of Flute at both the London College of Music and at Brunel University. She specialises in preparing students for careers involving the flute, but which might not necessarily be entirely performance-orientated. Appointed flute specialist to the Central Band of the RAF in 2002, she helps the players here further their professional development through solo performance. She also runs her own private teaching practice at home. Local pupils from beginner to diploma level benefit from her expertise and students from all over Europe come to advance their skills. She is also in demand from non-specialist woodwind teachers from around the country who need advice on playing the flute, as well as adults who wish to return to the flute after a long break.
