Dr. Susanna Loewy
Flutist Susanna Loewy is the Assistant Professor of Flute at Kutztown University, is a Teaching Artist for the Philadelphia Orchestra and Project 440, and is the founder/curator of the Pikes Falls Chamber Music Festival in Jamaica, VT. Susanna has lately become increasingly interested in motion-based learning, and is pursuing a teaching certificate in the Dalcroze learning method.
Susanna is the Principal Flutist and Project Manager for Inscape, a chamber music group based in the DC area that was nominated for a Grammy for its debut CD, "Sprung Rhythm." The group's second CD, "American Aggregate," was released this year, receiving favorable reviews. Susanna has played with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pennsylvania Ballet, The Louisiana Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Peter Nero and the Philly Pops, among other groups in the Philadelphia area and across the country. Susanna played at Carnegie Hall/Weill Hall in February of 2013, premiering the new works of three contemporary composers.
Susanna is also a Digital Faculty Consultant for McGraw Hill Education, and represented Music Education at McGraw Hill's Winter convention. Also for McGraw Hill, Susanna created a series of webinars on creating a flipped-classroom within large lecture classes. Partly because of these teaching innovations, Susanna was recently notified that she is a quarter-finalist for the 2015 Grammy Music Educator Award.
Susanna is a writer and reviewer for several musical publications. She writes for the Powell Flute Teaching Website, The Flute View, is a newly-published music reviewer for The Flutist Quarterly, and has an upcoming extended series of articles to be released by The Historical and Contemporary Flute Review.
Outside of the musical realm, Susanna is a certified Spinning teacher and Triathlon/Marathon coach; she is a writer/photographer for athletic-based journals and has been a sponsored IronMan Distance Triathlete. With her students, Susanna encourages a healthy and active lifestyle.
