Helen is a qualified Flute Teacher with an A.Mus.A, Bachelor of Arts (Music Major), and accreditation to teach the Suzuki Method.
While she is growing the only Suzuki Flute Studio in Brisbane, Helen’s encouraging style of teaching is extended to all students, whether they are progressing through AMEB examinations, are beginners wanting to enter the school band program, or have picked up the flute again after it has spent 15 years in the closet. Helen’s attention to good posture and excellent tone and technique have foundations in the Suzuki teaching method but apply to flute players universally.
Helen has played and performed with the Queensland Wind Orchestra and explored flute and guitar repertoire, particularly the music of Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, and some bluesy jazz numbers. She has taught flute since 2009.
She holds a current Blue Card (working with children check).
