I live with a wonderful guy named Jeff and two dogs named Clyde and Harmony. I have two sons, Brayton and Brett, and a brand new daughter-in-law named Myca, who came here a few months ago from the Philippines. I’ve been blessed in this life with good health, good friends and the opportunity to share my gifts as a piano and yoga teacher. I started playing the flute in 2016 and am psyched to be part of this group.
I have been playing flute for nine years in the Colchester Public Schools system, and I am currently in the Bacon Academy 6:45 Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band. I am also a flutist in the Greater Hartford Youth Wind Ensemble, and have performed in a few festival bands. I try to spend all of the time I can with my flute and piccolo, whose respective names are Brody and Borislav. Looking ahead, I plan to study Music Education in college. I love playing with the Flute Loops, and am super excited for our performances this year!
Amy is originally from Worcester, MA where she grew up dancing, singing, and acting. She started playing flute at age 10 and went on to become section leader of her high school band. She put the flute down for awhile after graduation to get married, open a My Gym Children's Fitness Center with her husband, and have four children. After owning and operating the business for 9 years, she and her husband sold it and she became a stay at home mom for her 3 girls and 1 boy. She now works from home as an online ELS teacher for children in China. Amy joined Flute Loops in 2018 and is thrilled to have the opportunity to play again!
Flute Loops Roster
North Windham, CT
I began playing the flute at age 10 in the Norwich Public School System. I played in Concert Band, Marching Band, Orchestra, and even as an occasional accompanist with the Chorus. Later I played in many groups, including Community Bands, Woodwind Quintets, Union Bands, Pit Orchestras, and for 20 years in the CT Army National Guard Band. Currently I keep my flute skills active with Flute Loops and CMR woodwind quintets. Be"leaf" it or not I am in this picture. (Hint: Look behind the tree).
Unlike many others, I began playing the flute in my 30’s (30 years ago). Although I did play the accordion for three years when I was 8. Why the flute instead of another instrument? It is smaller than a tuba. I am a retired chemical engineer. My wife and I live in Wallingford. In addition to Flute Loops, I play with town bands in Branford and Wallingford. My favorite flute to play is my alto flute, which has a rich, lower sound than the regular flute.
Music is my life! I have enjoyed playing the flute since my middle school years in Ledyard. I have taught for 35 years in CT schools and have retired from teaching band at the East Lyme Middle School. I love to play and will finally have time to practice and grow as a musician. Playing in pit orchestras for musicals is my favorite performance venue although orchestra, band, chamber music, church services, and solo work; and jazz band on alto sax is a lot of fun too. It is a treat to be on the receiving end - playing with Flute Loops and having everything so well organized.
I've been playing saxophone since the 4th grade and taught myself how to play flute as a sophomore in high school because it was much lighter to lug around in marching band...and I haven't stopped since! In addition to tootin' the flute, I'm also president of the Pratt & Whitney Screamin' Eagles Jazz Band where I play 2nd tenor sax. Outside of music, I run half marathons (because I'm only half crazy), co-lead a Girl Scout troop, lead a team at Pratt & Whitney and attempt to raise 3 children with my husband in Marlborough, CT.
Gales Ferry, CT
I live with my husband Steve (Flute Loops groupie). I’m a pharmacist by trade, and work in corporate pharmacy operations. My love for music started when I was a child - leading me to learn the piano. I’ve always loved the flute so finally started learning a few years ago. I’ve very excited to be a part of Flute Loops and to play music with such a great group of people!
