Flutist and educator Emily Dierickx is an active freelance musician currently based in DeWitt, Michigan.
Equally enthusiastic about teaching and performing, Emily has enjoyed teaching students of all ages in addition to performing as a solo, chamber, and orchestral artist. She is currently the flute instructor at Albion College and manages the Dierickx Music Studio.
As an orchestral performer, Emily has performed with ensembles across the Midwest and South Florida including West Michigan Symphony, The Symphonia (Boca Raton), Palm Beach Symphony, Miami City Ballet Opus One Orchestra, and Opera Project Columbus. In 2019-20, Emily was a member of the NODUS Ensemble – a contemporary chamber music ensemble in residence at Florida International University’s School of Music.
In addition to freelancing, Emily and her husband, Zachary Dierickx, are passionate about their chamber group – Dierickx Duo. Since 2015 they have promoted, commissioned, and performed music for flute and clarinet across the country.
Since 2019, Emily has been a committee member for the National Flute Association’s Archives and Oral History Committee. As part of this affiliation, she conducted an extensive oral history project which will be housed with the National Flute Association archives in the Library of Congress.
Emily earned her DMA in Flute Performance with an emphasis on Music Education from the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music. She is also a proud Spartan and Buckeye having earned performance degrees from Michigan State University (B.M.) and The Ohio State University (M.M.).
