Becky Thynne has been playing the flute for 15 years, piccolo for 13 years and alto flute for 7 years. She also plays piano, clarinet, and saxophone, having studied them in university. She is a graduate of York University and has obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with Honours, in Music, specifically Flute Performance and Education (2015).
After spending a busy, but wonderful, year as the elementary music teacher at the Montessori Academy of London, Becky is once again accepting private students to her home studio located in St. Thomas. She is currently performing with the London Community Orchestra and learning a new instrument: the harp!
Before university, Becky played flute and piccolo in her high school band, orchestra and wind ensemble. She was also in the Thames Valley District Honour Band and the Kincardine Summer Music Festival Orchestra and Band. While at university she performed in the York University Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble and ran her own Flute Ensemble. Becky also volunteered at a local high school where she helped in the music classroom by teaching one-to-one flute and piano lessons and ran multiple flute ensembles and workshops.
Becky has been teaching music privately for 8 years. Becky has a love of teaching and her students tell her that they look forward to her lessons every week. She has also received excellent feedback from their parents who say that their children have a new appreciation for music.
From 2015-2017, Becky lived in the UK where she played flute and piccolo with the Nottingham Wind Symphony and taught private lessons.
When she's not busy teaching music lessons and practicing, Becky enjoys horseback riding, reading and traveling.
