Livia Judge

Livia Judge is a flautist, composer and teacher. Her musical experience reflects her diverse interest in classical, contemporary and folk music. She holds a Master of Music in performance and composition from The University of Melbourne. Her composition teachers have included Mark Pollard and Johanna Selleck. She has composed predominantly for solo flute and other instruments such as clarinet and harp.

As a flautist her compositions have developed from a close relationship with her instrument. Themes present include nature and the poetry of for example Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. She works in a largely tonal style with modal references and dissonance of chordal structure.

Her piece a Granados was a finalist in the 2017 Australian Flute Festival composition competition.
