Muller Flute Studio, established in 2012, is owned and operated by Mrs. Angela Muller, a flutist with over 25 years playing experience.

Mrs. Muller holds a Bachelors degree in Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado and a Masters of Music from the University of Denver.

Ms. Angela has experience in many areas of music education. She is a former high school band and chorus director for both Duval County Public Schools, FL, and Clear Creek County, CO. She has also taught general music to grades K-12 and holds a Kinderflute Teacher’s Certificate. Her private teaching experience has ranged from beginners to adults and Ms. Muller’s students consistently progress and continuously earn high ratings in competitions and win auditions.

Mrs. Muller currently performs on flute in the First Coast Wind Ensemble and on piccolo with the First Coast Flute Choir in Jacksonville, Florida. Ms. Angela founded the First Coast Flute Choir in 2014 and is currently the music director for the ensemble. Past performance groups include the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, the Lamont Wind      Ensemble, the Aurora Symphony, the Colorado Cowboy Community Band, the University of Northern Colorado’s Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble.

Marie Schwartz is a flutist with decades of experience in orchestral performance, chamber ensemble performance, private instruction/masterclasses, and composition. She is well versed in playing different flutes, though she specializes in the piccolo, and has collaborated with many composers to premiere many new works on both instruments. 

Marie is currently the Principal Flutist of Orchestra Delray and the Conductor and Principal Piccoloist of the South Florida Flute Orchestra. 

She has performed with internationally acclaimed musicians, including Sir James Galway and Chicago (the rock band), and has performed with the Boca Symphonia (including the inaugural and subsequent Boca Festival of the Arts performances) and the Palm Beach Symphony.

She has made numerous appearances at the FFA conventions, and in 2023, she performed her first composition, “Lanai Bird” for piccolo solo. As Principal Flutist and Co-founder of her NY woodwind quintet, 4 Winds & A Horn, Marie made lifetime alliances with composers, who wrote woodwind quintets and a flute concerto for her. She can be heard on the “Turn of the Century” CD with composer Jerry Rizzi, who was her first composer collaboration.

Marie’s extensive experience in both musical performance and marketing prior to living in Florida, including collaborating with composers, co-founding a woodwind quintet, creating a chamber concert series, a symphony orchestra, and a youth concerto competition, inspired her to become a co-founder of the South Florida Chamber Ensemble (SFCE) in 2011.

Marie follows her passion of extending classical music to students of all ages by maintaining an active international private studio. Her students and her children continue to claim prestigious achievements and performance opportunities in the musical world. 

Marie’s flute teachers include Mindy Kaufman, Andrew Lolya, Herbert Levy, and Gerri Brioso. Masterclasses and performances with Jean-Pierre Rampal and Sir James Galway have also inspired her.
