Dr. Danielle Breisach’s exuberance and compassion permeate her performing and teaching. In demand as a collaborative musician and teacher, Dr. Breisach has performed all over the United States as well as in Canada, Asia and Europe. In addition to teaching as Associate Lecturer of Flute at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, she maintains a private studio of over 30 highly successful students in Madison, WI. In the summer, Dr. Breisach teaches at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Summer Music Clinics and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Flute Camp. She has adjudicated competitions for the National Flute Association, the Florida Flute Association and the Wisconsin Flute Festival.

As Co-Artistic Director of the Madison Flute Club since 2012, Dr. Breisach has extended the reach of the organization through founding the Chamber Ensemble, which gave its debut performance at the National Flute Associations annual convention in 2014. Additionally, Dr. Breisach founded the Middle School and High School Flute Ensembles in 2013, giving young, Madison-area flutists the opportunity to collaborate with one another and gain experience on piccolo, alto flute and bass flute.

Dr. Breisach has appeared in performances, masterclasses and festivals in United States, Canada, Italy, and China including the Bay View Music Conservatory, Le Domaine Forget, and the Banff Centre. She has performed with the Madison Symphony Orchestra, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestraand Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, among others, and has been a concerto soloist with the Western Michigan University Symphony Orchestra. In addition to modern flute, she is a baroque flute and celtic flute enthusiast, and has participated in baroque masterclasses with Kim Pineda and Barthold Kuijken.

You are not just a musician, but so much more. You happen to be someone who has taken it upon themselves to practice music. Don’t forget to cultivate your other interests. I am really proud of the way that all the faculty in the Music Department work together to bring our students as many opportunities as possible. It’s rare that such a big group of people can work in such harmony with one another! The ability to expose students to new information and tailor content to their needs. I love seeing students find their calling and fulfillment in life. Keep an open mind and a teacher’s heart. Each and every person and moment has the opportunity to teach you something.
