Do you remember what first attracted you to the flute as an instrument?
My local primary school, Chatswood Public School, had a great music programme. I was reluctant to give it a go, but when I was in Year Five my mum finally convinced me to try it. Everyone in my group chose the flute so that’s what I chose too. Once I started learning the instrument though I absolutely loved it. I remember leaving it out all the time on the big table in the family room and picking it up to play every time I walked past.
Who would you consider to be your all-time greatest flute ‘heroes’?
There are so many people I would consider to be my heroes. Besides my incredible teachers James Kortum, Rosamund Plummer, Sue Thomas, Daniel Pailthorpe, Simon Channing and Stewart McIlwham, I would say that Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson, Emily Beynon and Michael Cox would be a start.
