Emma Su, a junior at Ridgewood High School, NJ, currently studies with Bart Feller at The Juilliard Pre-College. Emma started learning flute at age 10 when she battled a vision illness.

After returning to the States, Emma studied with Tara O’Connor and Wendy Stern. Emma has won the Vivo-International Music Competition, Great Composers Competitions, New York Flute Club Young Musicians Contest, Camerata Artists International Competition, and Young Artist Competition of the Spectrum Symphony of NY.

In 2018, Emma was accepted into the Curtis Young Artist Summer Program as the youngest flutist. At Ridgewood High School, Emma is the principal flutist of the Wind Ensemble and mentors the Symphonic Band and the Concert Band.
