Learn to master the piccolo with help from a professional flutist.
I have worked as a professional orchestral piccolo player in several ensembles including the Lyric Opera Ireland, SinfoNua Orchestra, and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra. My primary piccolo teacher was renowned piccolo player and pedagogue, Patricia Morris. Her piccolo method books, combined with my own professional playing experience inform my teaching style and understanding of the piccolo as it's own unique instrument.
About Faith W.

I have performed throughout Europe and North America as an orchestral and solo musician, and my favorite part of touring is meeting people from different places and trying new foods! I currently hold a long-term piccolo/3rd flute substitute position with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra. My recent engagements include working as principal flute with Lyric Opera Ireland as well as SinfoNua Orchestra. I’m a founding member of the Pento Wind Quintet having played at the Kaleidoscope Chamber Festival and Blackwater Valley Festival. I received my Masters of Music in Flute Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music studying flute with William Dowdall, former principal flute of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, and piccolo with Patricia Morris, former principal piccolo of the BBC Symphony. I graduated with honors from Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance where I simultaneously earned a Bachelor of Music in Music History and a Bachelor of Music in flute performance studying under Loren Lind of the Philadelphia Orchestra. During the Covid-19 pandemic I initiated my own Virtual Chamber Concert Series in order to share music with others during difficult times. My online series is called, "Flute with Faith & Friends,” and has involved select guest performing artists.
