Lynette Leavitt Lewis, a native of Phoenix, Arizona, grew up in a musical home. Learning to love music at a young age and receiving multiple recognition awards, she decided to pursue a major in music. In college, she soloed with the Ricks College Symphony Orchestra and Brigham Young University Philharmonic Orchestra. While touring Europe and Asia with performing groups she learned firsthand how music is truly a universal language. After winning the State and Region MTNA Woodwind Competitions, she went on to become the National Runner-up in the Collegiate MTNA Woodwind Competition.
After earning her Master of Music Degree, she studied with Michel Debost at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio. Lynette returned to Utah where she taught flute lessons at Brigham Young University for two years. After starting her family, she performed for several years with Nachtmusik Chamber Orchestra, Silver Winds Flute Ensemble, and occasionally with the Utah Baroque Ensemble. She co-founded the Utah Valley Flute Festival, which has been running for 26 years.
Through the years she has performed in master classes for Leone Buyse, Francis Blaisdell, Louis Moyse, John Barcelona, Gary Schocker, and attended masterclasses with James Galway, Kathleen Chastain, Amy Porter, and Bonita Boyd, among others.
Lynette currently teaches flute lessons in her private studio in Spanish Fork, Utah and has played principal flute with the Utah Valley Symphony for the past 21 years. She also studied voice, piano, and organ for many years. Besides her love of music, Lynette enjoys baking, traveling, gardening, and spending time with her incredible family.
