With over 30 years of teaching experience, Sibylle Marquardt is one of the leading flute instructors in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She teaches students from age 6 to adult, beginners and professionals, using individually selected methods.

Teaching positions in Germany and Switzerland brought her to the Faculty of the Royal Conservatory of Music Toronto in 1998.

Since the fall of 2018 she is on faculty at the Maritime Conservatory for the Performing Arts. Sibylle gives private lessons, teaches the Suzuki flute method for her younger students, coaches groups and ensembles for teenagers and adults, and holds regular class concerts.

Her summer course “Maritime Ensemble Week or MEW” for advanced adult players was run out of the Maritime Conservatory and is presently on hold. During the Pandemic Sibylle took her adult students on cyber trips to 6 different countries and continents, with quick-study repertoire for every difficulty level.

Her students and ensembles are multiple prize winners in the Kiwanis Music Festival of Greater Toronto, the flute competition of the Canadian Flute Association and the Alliance for New Music. Her students have also been accepted into professional flute studies at multiple universities. Being an examiner herself, Sibylle’s students have the option to prepare for regular examinations.

Thank you so much for your amazing mentorship, support and excellent work. It has been such a privilege to have you in our lives.

…over the past two years I have learned so much about playing the flute and I have improved tremendously. I never thought that I would come that far playing the flute and I was very fortunate to have met a teacher like you…
