My fascination with art started at a young age and developed through my music career, ultimately encouraging me to move to Germany after finishing my degree at the Conservatory of Music Aragón, in my own city, Zaragoza (Spain).
After ten years of working and living in Germany, more specifically in Cologne where I obteined my Bachelor and Masters degree at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln, I have recently relocated to High Wycombe.
I have been enjoying Flute teaching since 2005. During this time I have gained experience teaching in Spanish, German and English.

ANA PALACIOS CASTELLANO began her musical training with her father at the age of eight, in her home city of Zaragoza, Spain. After completing her studies at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Zaragoza she was accepted at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón, beginning her debut as a solo flutist at the Auditorio de Zaragoza. On completing her degree in 2007, under the tutelage of Fernando Gómez and Antonio Nuez, Ana moved to Germany to further continue her musical career at the Cologne University of Music and Dance.
Ana was awarded the Hezekiah Wardwell-Scholarship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Berlin in 2008, before obtaining her Diploma in 2009 and her Master’s degree as a Solo Flutist in 2011 with Prof. Robert Winn at the Hochschule für Musik Köln. During this time, Ana was awarded the prize from the Verein der Freunde und Förderer der Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln e.V.
During her musical career, Ana has had the privilege to take Master Classes from many great musicians including Jaime Martín, Chiara Tonelli, Paul-Edmund Davies, Magdalena Martínez and Thaddeus Watson.
She has collaborated with many orchestras across Germany including WDR Funkhausorchester, Folkwang Chamber Orchestra Essen, Gut Immling Opera Festival Orchestra, Cologne Chambers, Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra, Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Kammerphilhamonie Köln, where she has being developing her solo career performing throughout Spain, Germany, France, Denmark, England and Ireland.
Internationally, Ana has had the pleasure of performing in countries such as Singapore, Australia and Kuwait, where she performed as part of the opening ceremony of the National Theatre.
Throughout her career Ana has founded several chamber music ensembles, with which she still performs: Ensemble clAsica (Cologne - 2012) and Duo MIRAGE (Zaragoza - 2018). After ten years living and working in Germany, Ana has now relocated to the UK where she performs as a freelance musician. Ana continues to regularly perform with various Spanish Orchestras; recent collaborations have included the Orquesta Reino de Aragón and the Camerata Penedès.
I would like to highly recommend Ana Palacios as teacher. Professional students will have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful instrument through her love, enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques which will lead them to a successful career, due to her wide Orchester experience. Sincerely, María
I started flute lessons again after 15 years of not playing and wasn’t sure how easy I would find to play again after so long but Ana is a great flute teacher and is very patient. She also asked me what music I was interested in so I could learn songs that I liked. Highly recommended!
Ana is a great player and excellent teacher. I went to her with many problems that she patiently dealt with. My playing has improved tremendously under her guidance. She is someone you want to work hard for. I practise hard to try to impress her, which I'm sure is how anyone would feel. We carry on the lessons with skype now that we have the lock down restrictions and it still works well. Her CV is of the highest standard. I expect the information is all on this site. I fell on my feet when I met her.
I had Ana as a flute teacher a few years ago. She was very patient with me and she did a great job giving me the resources I needed to get better. Now, I appreciate how hard she worked. She was very knowledgeable. Everything I learned with her will stick with me for the rest of my life.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I've learned so much from Ana, especially because time with her flies by and our connection makes every little thing significant.
Her charisma is what makes connecting with her so easy and that's why learning with her turns to be fun and makes you feel very confident.
Ana can help you to learn or improve your flute skills. With more than 15 years experience in the field, I highly recommend her for your flute lessons.
I couldn’t recommend Ana highly enough. A great teacher and it’s a joy to attend her lessons.
Ana has years of experience as a teacher and tutor.
When I met Ana, in Germany 2010, she was finishing her master's and giving flute lessons as a side job while playing in cologne orquestra.
Since then, Ana carried on playing and giving flute lessons.
If your goal is too learn, improve and perfect the art of playing flute, you can't miss out the opportunity of having a vibrant, patient and outstanding teacher such as Ana!
