Emma Knott completed degrees in flute performance from the Queensland Conservatorium and University of Wollongong, studying with renowned teachers, Margaret Crawford and Geoffrey Collins. She then travelled overseas to study with the legendary flautists, William Bennett and James Galway. Upon returning to Australia, she joined the staff at the University of Wollongong and formed the Wollongong Conservatorium Flute Ensemble, later to become the award-winning Stables Ensemble.
Emma subsequently lectured at the Sydney Conservatorium for ten years, where she collaborated in the development of a beginner tutor book with Margaret Crawford and Mark Walton. A former conductor for the Sydney Youth Orchestra and an AMEB examiner for more than 25 years, she has also held office for the Flute Society of NSW and the Australian Flute Society.
Emma is an accomplished performer, with multiple albums featuring Australian flute music to her credit, which have been played extensively on the classical network. She is also a member of the innovative Eclectix Flute Quartet. A dedicated and inspiring teacher of many decades experience, Emma currently continues her extended tenure at her alma mater, Frensham, having also taught at Kinross Wolaroi, as well as numerous Sydney schools. She was the School Programs Manager and a flute teacher at the Mitchell Conservatorium from 2019 until earlier 2023 and is now appointed to the staff at the Hume Conservatorium in Goulburn.
