I am currently working on my Masters in Flute Performance with the famous soloist, Mimi Stillman, at Boyer College of Music and Dance. I have a very unique style of teaching which emphasizes proper breathing, posture, technique, musicianship, etc. I love teaching students who are passionate and motivated toward their crafts.
About Nava P.

Born in Tehran, Nava P. started her musical training at the age of 10. After years of training, she later moved to the United States to pursue her passion at the University of Utah under the guidance of Professor Caitlyn Valovick Moore (Piccolo Player in the Utah Symphony) and Lisa Byrnes (Associate Principal Flute in the Utah Symphony) on the Matthews Music Scholarship and the Gochnour Flute Scholarship. In the summer of 2017, she took part in the Utah Flute Sonata Competition, in which she won third place within the entire state of Utah. Additionally, she was the only intern selected from the University of Utah to serve in the 2017 National Flute Association Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In April 2017, she premiered an Iranian piece, Miniatures by Reza Nakisa, with her colleagues at the University of Utah. Nava was the recipient of the most prestigious music award, the Presser Undergrad Scholar Award, for the 2019-2020 academic year at the University of Utah. She also completed her undergrad degree in flute performance there. Moving Forward, Nava is working on her Masters under world-renowned soloist Mimi Stillman at Temple University. Nava has had the opportunity to play in masterclasses of several renowned flutists such as Carol Wincenc (Juilliard professor), Leone Buyse (Rice professor), Nancy Stagnita (Interlocken professor), Emma Gerstein (Associate Principal Flute in the Chicago Symphony), April Clayton (Brigham Young University Professor) and Denis Bouriakov (principal flutist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and UCLA professor).
