Thanks to MusicNL for the 4 MusicNL Award nominations! I’ve been nominated for “Female Artist of the Year”, “Instrumental Recording of the Year”, “Educator of the Year” and “Side Musician of the Year”. I’m really blown away by this. Thank you to my Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments and MusicNL families who support what I do and help me shine.
It was an honour to present and perform at the National Flute Convention in Orlando, Florida. I spoke on a career panel about entrepreneurship and performed at the showcase for the Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments all-stars at #NFAFlute2018. I wish I could put into words how special the Gemeinhardt flute family is to me. Such wonderful people who warm my heart and make FANTASTIC instruments! Thank you for helping me shine.

Did it ever warm my heart to see these articles in The Flute View. Check out May’s issue to read the Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments “Flute Maker Spotlight”, an in-depth “Artist Interview” where I talk about looping, the music industry, what “effected flute” means to me and creative/musical inspirations. Also check out “15 Healthy Habits on the Road”. Lots of flute looping goodness in this month’s issue: http://thefluteview.com #flutegirl #Piccflute#GemeinhardtArtist #looping #effectedflute
And so it begins! 1st stop: GANDER for a cool house concert at Melissa Tee‘s beautiful spot! Time for some serious Tetris action in the car. So grateful to be doing this. #PiccFlute #gemeinhardtontheroad #GemeinhardtArtist#flutegirl #flutelooper #touringlife #houseconcert #atlanticcanadatour#musicpassionlife #getyourfluteon
Thanks to the fine folks at Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments and Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, I’ll be hitting the road in Atlantic Canada and I would love to see your beautiful faces!

Join our Facebook event page if you want to be kept in the loop: https://www.facebook.com/events/173387131663602 More dates to be announced soon. Can’t wait to see ya, Atlantic Canada!
It’s an exciting day for this flute looper, a moment I’ve been working towards for many months now. I begin the first of three new recording projects which will have me digging into completely new territory and collaborating with people I greatly admire. We’re combining: two of my favourite instruments (a gorgeous Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments effected alto flute and omnichord), my favourite poem (“The Invitation” by Canadian author, Oriah Mountain Dreamer), one seriously inspiring yoga instructor (Jenn King of Moksha Yoga Halifax) and one of our favourite practices, Yin Yoga.
