Emeline Dessi (flute)
Emeline was born in Troyes, France, where she graduated from the Music Conservatory at 18 years of age old with the highest recognition in flute.
In 2004 she continued her studies in Paris in the classes of Pascale Feuvrier, Frédéric Chatoux and Frédéric Hochain, and in 2008 she arrived to the Netherlands, to continue her studies at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. There she studied with Benoît Fromanger and also obtained her BA in pedagogy and performing.
Her teaching career started when she was 17, teaching in a music school close to her hometown and some private students. Between 2004 and 2008, she taught flute and music classes, in the music school in Aix-en-Othe.
Since she moved to The Hague, Emeline teaches in different music schools as well as some private students.
As a performer, she regularly plays in orchestras, chamber ensembles and solo concerts. She performs various kind of music from classical repertoire to contemporary. She is a fervent defender of contemporary music and supporter of young international composers.
She has gained experience in Europe both in pedagogy and performing. She believes that art and culture are one of the treasures of our society. In her view, music is really an international language and helps to develop communicative, sensitive and cognitive skills among others. It is a great ‘tool’ to interact with people and develop compassion and to help us express the inexpressible.
