Notes:

Hello, I am Katie Bicknell, a freelance professional flautist and teacher. I play with the major orchestras in the UK and have been guest principal with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, RTE Concert Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Aurora Orchestra and The Royal Northern Sinfonia. I have performed in all the major UK concert halls and abroad including Glyndebourne, The Concertgebouw and The Lincoln Centre, New York.

As a flute teacher, both in private tuition and in establishments such as the Royal College of Music Junior Department, my students have had great success in achieving their full potential, whether this be leading to a professional music career or for the simple pleasure of music making. My Grade 8 (ABRSM) and diploma students have all achieved distinction and I have had the privilege of teaching some of this country’s finest young flautists. Some of my student's successes include woodwind finalist of the BBC Young Musician Competition, 100% A level performance passes grade A, placements as principal in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, placements at the Royal College of Music, Royal Welsh College and Oxford and Cambridge universities. As someone who is passionate about the education of young people, it gives me great pleasure to encourage the progression of students from beginners to whatever their potential allows.

I design each lesson to the individual student's needs, building their skill-set in listening and interpretation, confidence in their playing as well as technique and tone. I always provide an initial consultation lesson, free of charge, to assess the needs and aspirations of students and parents.
