Sandy Schwoebel holds BM, MM and DMA degrees in performance. She was Editor of The Flutist Quarterly from 1992-1998, Consulting Editor and writer for Flute Talk magazine from 2000-2002, and a columnist for the New Zealand magazine Flute Focus from 2008-2013.
Sandy performs frequently as a soloist and section player with large ensembles throughout the Southwest, sometimes touring as far away as China. However, her main focus is chamber music, as she finds that type of music to be the most creative and challenging. Her current ensembles include flute/harp, flute/soprano/piano, flute quartet, woodwind trio, and flute/cello/piano/percussion.
Sandy is well established as a flute pedagogue in Arizona. She has a large private studio, and taught at Pima Community College for over 20 years. Additionally, she spent nine years serving as a Teaching Artist for Tucson Unified School District's innovative Opening Minds through the Arts Program (OMA Project), developing curriculum, coaching classroom teachers and helping other instrumentalists.
On the national scene, Sandy is a two-time National Flute Association competition winner and has served as a Grants Reviewer in Arts Education for the National Endowment for the Arts.
Lessons are available in-person and via Skype or FaceTime. Contact Sandy for more information and availability.
