Justine Bristow M.Mus (Flute Performance)

Justine completed her Bachelor of Music in Performance at the Victorian College of the Arts (Melb) under Mardi McSullea & Susan Barker and her Masters of Music in Performance at the University of Auckland (NZ) under Professor Uwe Grodd.

Her additional studies include one year with Trevor Wye at his flute studio (UK) and summer classes and masterclasses with international teachers including Robert Aitken (Europe), Elena Duran (Mexico) & William Bennett (UK). 

With more than 25 years of experience as a flute teacher and performer Justine has taught all levels from beginner to university level and has freelanced with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra - on flute and piccolo - as well as for musical shows such as “The Sound of Music” and “Phantom of the Opera”.


In addition to classical flute, she has extensively studied rhythmic body and voice methodology with percussionist Reinhard Flatischler (Europe) for more than 13 years.

Justine has bridged her classical western flute playing with her rhythmic based training and percussion experience into a fusion of flute improvisations varying from groovy to lyrical. 


As a recording artist she enjoys composing  / improvising various flute and percussion music, as well as solo flute, flute & guitar.  In 2017, Justine co-composed the "Anaris Symphonic Rhythm Project" along with her partner.  The Anaris project is a 30 piece orchestral suite with choir recorded at Trackdown Studios, Sydney.


Justine has established herself as reputable teacher and has taught flute at numerous schools in the Blue Mountains, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.  2021 -2022 Justine was woodwind tutor  at the University of Western Sydney.  She is currently offering lessons online and in the Batemans Bay / Tuross Head area on NSW South Coast.  Justine is passionate about teaching and feels privileged to be able to share her knowledge with others.
