Flute Faculty


I would say music is supposed to be fun so why would I limit myself? Endless possibilities is my mantra for creativity. The idea is that you can create something familiar and bridge that with the unknown. Why limit yourself?

- Nicole Mitchell, a flutist, composer, and educator who is one of the foremost creative musicians of the twenty-first century.
