Emil has always had a passion for music. He started taking piano lessons in middle school, even though he was already playing percussion in band class. In high school he decided to teach himself the flute–and then the oboe, and then the trumpet, and then the violin. He loved it all, but in college he didn’t think music could be a career and tried to do computer science instead. Still his love for music couldn’t be ignored, so he joined Brigham Young University’s Philharmonic Orchestra, performing in numerous concerts and operas.
Emil completed his college experience with a degree in music education from the University of Utah before moving to Austin. He has taught piano and flute for nearly 10 years and also performs locally with choirs and bands in Leander, Round Rock, and Austin ISDs. Emil loves to make learning fun and exciting, whether students are interested in classical, jazz, or pop music.
