Desiree Wiggill has been sharing the joy of music with students of all ages and cultures for the past 30 years. She grew up in a musical family in South Africa, where singing, musical ensembles and dancing were part of growing up.

Desiree holds a 4 year Bachelors in Music from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, with higher education diploma (B.Mus.Ed). She continued her studies at the same University and completed the B.Mus Honors Performing Arts degree in flute, Cum Laude. She also obtained a Trinity College of London Performer's Licentiate in flute. She was a member of the acclaimed University Choir of Pretoria, now TUKS Camerata.

Her passion for children led to studying and becoming an internationally licensed Kindermusik educator. Her music school in South Africa reached 250 families per year, with a combination of Kindermusik, flute and piano classes. She received several awards from Kindermusik, including maestro awards for her outreach programs, “most inspiring educator” award and recently a 2022 Top Program award.

Desiree’s family moved to the USA in 2017, where she has been continuing her career as Kindermusik educator, music teacher and flutist. Desiree trained under Mr Toshio Takahashi, student of Dr Suzuki and founder of the Suzuki flute method and became a Suzuki flute teacher in 2018.

Desiree’s teaching is rooted in the pedagogy + philosophies of masters, Orff, Kodaly, Dalcroze, Suzuki, Galway and Montessori, yet fresh, innovative and inspiring, taking into account the student’s personality, learning style and goals. Desiree also offers piano to students with special needs.

Desiree is a wife and mother of two grown-up daughters and a son who has Down Syndrome. In her free time, Desiree enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, reading, singing in choirs and playing flute in ensembles.
