Abbie teaches flute at The Purcell School, a specialist music school for young musicians aged 8 to 18. She has previously taught at the junior department of the Royal Academy of Music and is a teaching deputy at Trinity Laban, Junior Guildhall and Junior Trinity. She runs Flute Academy London (a teaching programme for adults) and has been a resident tutor for Flute School London courses for nine years. She is a keen supporter of flute charity Flutewise - working for the organisation since 2005, assisting Liz Goodwin (Founder) on courses and events in the UK, Slovenia and Croatia. 

An innovative and enthusiastic teacher, Abbie has been a guest artist on numerous flute events and courses, working with thousands of flute players. Her creative (and unorthodox!) teaching style has earned her an international reputation, with several of her workshops being scheduled in flute festivals and courses across the UK, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, Iceland, Poland, Holland, Gran Canaria, Hong Kong, Spain, Kenya, America and Australia. She has led masterclasses, flute choirs and workshops for flute players of all ages and standards, as well as working as an ensemble coach, audition panellist and competition adjudicator.
