Mariya Lincoln: piano and flute instructor
Mariya brings a strong work ethic and sense of humor to her work. She draws on the variety of her musical background to keep her teaching and performances fresh. In the Seattle area she's played in pit orchestras and large ensembles, farmers markets to the area's fanciest venues. Currently her focus is on private teaching and performing for private events.
Mariya got her start on the piano at a young age, and soon added flute and then saxophone. In school she was active in student ensembles including concert band, youth symphony, woodwind quintet, and jazz band. She started performing professionally while still in college, and took a year each to travel to Chile and China, where she performed regularly and expanded her musical horizons.
She moved to Washington in 2000, establishing a private flute and piano teaching studio and performing in venues around the area. She is a life member and former board member of the Seattle Flute Society, an active member of the Seattle Musicians' Union, and co-founder of Flute Boot Camp. She is also Administrative Coordinator for the Seattle Music Teachers Association.
