Background

Emma Reinhart is equally passionate about music education and accessibility as performance. She currently serves in New York City public schools as a Teaching Artist with the New York Pops Education program and as woodwind faculty at the British International School of New York. 

 

Emma's work with K-12 students began through the USC Thornton Community Engagement Program (TCEP), where she held several teaching roles at schools in the downtown Los Angeles area. She has since taught private instrumental and group music lessons through the French Conservatory of Music, Bertrand's Music, the Santa Monica Academy, and the Los Angeles Music and Arts School, where she later served on the Young Professionals Advisory Board. Emma has also worked with students at Laguna Beach High School, Lakewood High School, the Brentwood School, and Palm Desert Charter Middle School.

In 2019, Emma presented a woodwind doubling mini-recital and Q&A to students at Riverside City College as well as a traditional saxophone masterclass for the saxophone studio at California State University, Fullerton. She is currently an adjunct instructor of music at College of the Desert (Palm Desert, CA), where she teaches saxophone, clarinet, and flute private lessons to music majors (remotely). Previous students at COD have successfully auditioned and transferred to the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach and Cal Poly Humboldt in pursuit of bachelor of music degrees.

Emma holds two Master of Music degrees from the University of Michigan in Multiple Woodwinds and in Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Southern California (USC), where she majored in saxophone and studied flute, clarinet, and oboe as extracurriculars with faculty members.
