Welcome to the Fluteful Blog!

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

My name is Katie and I'm a professional flutist based in San Diego. I love teaching, I love writing, and I love playing my instrument - and what better way to combine these three passions than by starting a blog related to all things flute?

The purpose of this blog is threefold:

1. To de-mystify the process of practicing by offering helpful, flute-specific advice to my students and anyone interested in playing the flute

2. To share my perspective on a diverse range of musicianship topics, from writing a studio policy to planning a recital to orchestral etiquette

3. To offer my students and fellow musicians an honest glimpse into my professional career as a flutist and teacher, hopefully encouraging and inspiring them along the way.

A little more about me:

I still have the first flute I ever owned: a nickel-plated Yamaha, which got me through middle school band and high school marching band.

My favorite orchestral excerpt is the bird from "Peter & the Wolf" by Prokofiev.

I would love to someday play the entirety of The Nutcracker Ballet by Tchaikovsky.

I lived in Scotland for two years (no, I cannot re-create the accent).

I love tea, especially English breakfast and white jasmine.

I absolutely love the Grand Canyon and would visit every year if I could.

A few of my favs: book - Jane Eyre, color - yellow, cake - carrot

I have a beautiful 5-year-old Nebelung cat named Gian Francesco Malipiero.

I love anything written by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Tim Keller.

Thanks for stopping by! I am excited to start this journey with you.
