Our Founder

Flutes & Co was founded by Suzanne De Lozey.  Suzanne began flute lessons at the age of 13 with Alfred Sebire (1892-1980),  a former pupil of Charles Souper and John Amadio. She went on to read music at Gypsy Hill, Kingston-upon-Thames where she studied flute with Averil Williams and Doris da Costa, and piano with Michael Round. She continued her studies at Bretton Hall College in Yorkshire (now part of Leeds University).

After moving to Cumbria in 1981 to work as teacher of woodwind and class music at St. Anne’s School in Windermere, she then working for the County Music Service teaching flute and fife in many of the local primary and secondary schools.

Suzanne founded Flutes & Co in 1994 with a small group of young flute players and stayed as the Musical Director until July 2015 when she stepped down to concentrate on other pursuits.

As a self-employed freelance musician, Suzanne plays in many orchestras and chamber ensembles throughout Cumbria and teaches privately. She has, for a number of years been 2nd Flute and Piccolo soloist with the Promenade Concert Orchestra. Whilst engrossed with these activities, Suzanne has also been involved with various local music societies, in the role of accompanist or as a trustee and is currently the British Flute Society’s area representative for Cumbria.

Since  2006 she has been a member of ‘The Wooden Leg’ ceilidh band (flute) and more recently has become the pianist for the quartet ‘Fuga’, playing Argentinian tango music of Piazzolla.
