Flute Educator & Performer

Brynna is a current doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she recently received her Master of Music in Flute Performance and Literature, studying with Dr. Jonathan Keeble. She previously studied under Molly Barth and Dr. Jacqueline Cordova-Arrington. As an active performer, Brynna has participated in masterclasses and festivals across the continent, including the 2023 Aspen Music Festival in Colorado, and the Domaine Forget International Festival in Québec, Canada. She was also the winner of the annual University of Oregon Concerto and Aria Competition, performing Frank Martin’s Ballade with the U of O Symphony Orchestra. In 2019, she was selected as a performer in the Masterclass Competition at the National Flute Association Convention in Salt Lake City. 

Originally from a small town in rural Washington State, Brynna has a special passion for community engagement and music education. Alongside her peers, she has given many recitals in local venues, including a recent performance for the Eugene Hotel, a retirement facility in Eugene, Oregon.  As part of the University of Oregon Wind Ensemble, Brynna organized and led masterclasses at various high schools across the state of Oregon, working with young students on the fundamentals of flute playing. It is one of her many goals to help foster a greater love and appreciation for music as an art form among young performers. Brynna is currently offering flute lessons both in-person and online.

Brynna Paros prides herself in her use of the flute as a medium for emotional communication with an audience, and in her ability to bridge the gap between music and science. With a background and degrees in both flute performance and psychology from the University of Oregon, she has spent much of her life honing her craft on her instrument and delving into the many fascinating interactions between sound and the brain. Brynna is continually intrigued by interdisciplinary pursuits, and in enriching musical experiences with scientific inquiry.
