Anna PopeAnna Pope teaches the flute at the Purcell School, the Junior Royal Academy of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music. She has taught at specialist level for over 20 years and is very proud of the achievements of her pupils. They have been an almost continuous presence in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain since 1993, including three principal flutes and two principal piccolos. Emma Halnan in 2010 was the second of her pupils to be a Concerto Finalist

in the BBC Young Musician competition. Many of her former students are now in the profession as players and teachers, notably Juliette Bausor, principal flute of the Northern Sinfonia and London Mozart Players.

Anna has always concerned herself with the physical and mental well-being of her students, seeing a fit body and mind as fundamental to the achievement of full potential. Her collaboration with David Katz to introduce Bodywork into instrumental training has added a whole new dimension. Their research is ongoing, and their constantly evolving techniques are producing exciting results.

Anna is a member of the Pipe Dreams trio. A CD is available on the Guild label, GMCD 7390.
