Originally from London, Amy Naddermier studied flute at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with Katherine Baker and Richard Davis. In 2018, she was awarded a scholarship by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama to pursue a Master’s degree and recently graduated with distinction. Under the tutelage of Jennifer Hutchinson at the RNCM, Amy explored a world of repertoire written for the piccolo and in 2017, she reached the final of the Ken Griffin Flute Prize with her all-piccolo programme.
Amy continues to be a keen orchestral musician. In 2015, she won the Hallé Orchestra’s Professional Experience Scheme and has subsequently played with the Hallé and London Symphony Orchestras as well as the Manchester Camerata. Amy has also performed on BBC Radio 3 with the RNCM’s Big Band as well as appearing on the BBC’s ‘The One Show’ as part of the MS Orchestra, commemorating the life of Jacqueline du Pré. She currently enjoys a busy schedule as a freelance musician and teacher.
