Adrianne Greenbaum’s career as tutor, professor, mentor, and coach spans four decades. She has involved herself with teaching at all levels, from the day-one experience of flute playing, to coaching professionals on the fine distinction of making music come alive. Beyond her private studio she has taught at many adult programs: KlezKamp, KlezKanada, KlezmerQuerque, Boxwood Festival (Nova Scotia) and Santa Fe Flute Immersion. Known as a Flute Pioneer in the klezmer world, Adrianne leads workshops wherever she travels: England, France, Vienna, and across the US. She is a published composer and arranger of her own compositions of flute choir and of flute and orchestra music.
Currently, she is Professor of Music, teaching flute, piano lab and klezmer ensemble, at Mount Holyoke, a position she has held since 1974. She is Principal Flute Emeritus of Orchestra New England and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra and currently presents concerts on period instruments, connecting klezmer and baroque music.
Adrianne is proud of her NEMC connections in that she’s not only had many fine students attend, but one of them is happily married to another NEMC camper (having met on the camp bus) and another is her daughter who has forever thanked her for pushing her out the door her first time.
