Other studies would include solfege, voice, piano performance, Alex technique emphasis performance, release, and a piano studies emphasis in theory. She is also certified by the state of California as an Activity Director. She started playing in church when she was 12 years old and started arranging some simple versions of hymns.

She has written Christian Contemporary music for churches and written children’s musicals. She also composes classical contemporary music with stories. Her plans are to someday write the stories in books for expressive therapy for children, learning disabilities, and dementia to help them to learn to express more creativity and gain confidence and an awareness of music with art and color. She also does music awareness in retirement homes. In 1996, she wrote Christian contemporary music for a ministry and participated as one of the singers and soloists on cable TV for a year.

Natalia V.

Natalia was nine years old when she first heard a piece for solo flute performed in a grand church, making her sit up a little straighter. On her tenth birthday, her father gave her her very first flute (a Yamaha student model), and she has been living the history of that day ever since. The role of flute performance in Natalia's life has transformed from an extra-curricular activity at the age of ten to her most challenging, captivating, rewarding, and necessary undertaking thus far. Natalia won numerous awards, recognitions, and scholarships in solo festivals and youth orchestras in her hometown of Bakersfield, California before moving her life to Southern California in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in flute performance. In August of 2015, she began her studies at San Diego State University where she studied with Pamela Martchev. She graduated in May 2020 with a B.M. in Flute Performance and a B.A. in Philosophy. During her time at San Diego State University, Natalia served as principal flutist of the Symphony Orchestra for 4 seasons, principal flutist of the Wind Symphony for 2 seasons, the principal flutist of the Chamber Orchestra for 3 seasons. She has had the opportunity to play under notable conductors such as Maxim Eshkenazy. As a soloist, she has been recognized by the San Diego Flute Guild and participated in masterclasses for Carol Wincenc, Jim Walker, Denis Bouriakov, Benjamin Smolen, and Seth Morris. Natalia can be heard on various albums and projects outside of classical music and has a passion for playing in diverse performance disciplines. She is an active flute coach and private instructor for all ages and skill levels and plans to earn her Masters Degree from Mannes School of Music in 2023.
