I grew up in rural Southwest Virginia and began playing piano and percussion in the sixth grade. I loved music so much I wanted to try all the instruments. I began playing flute, trumpet, oboe, sax, piano, voice and even a little violin, but the only one that I really stuck with was flute.
In college I continued my love for music, even when I decided to study computer science. At that time I was attending Brigham Young University and played percussion with the world renowned BYU Philharmonic Orchestra. After not fitting in with the computer science crowd and transferring to a different school I came to realize music was my passion and I started all over to get a Bachelor’s in music education from the University of Utah.
After moving to Austin, Texas I’ve been fortunate to play and teach piano, flute and voice lessons in the Leander ISD area. I enjoy accompanying school choirs and musicals and taking on choir and band director roles when the teachers need to be out. I know that I teach with my passion for music in every lesson and I look forward to teaching at Northwest School of Music.
Today, Emil teaches piano, flute and voice lessons serving Austin, Cedar Park, Round Rock and Leander.Back to Classes & Teachers>
