Rebecca Chapman is a powerful motivator and compelling communicator onstage and in the studio.

Chapman served as Adjunct Professor of Flute at Utah Valley University, Utah’s largest university, for the past eight years. There she rapidly grew the studio to more than double its size, teaching her students pedagogy and entrepreneurship skills alongside musical performance. All of her student graduates have gone on to pursue musical careers or a Masters music degree. 


Chapman’s book, The Art of Making the Phrase, is a  guide to help flutists develop an expert level of musical intent in their playing. It will be released in 2024. 


Chapman is a frequent studio artist and has recorded flute tracks for CATS, Footloose, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Newsies, Oliver!, Chicago,  and many others. She has appeared with the Utah Symphony and has been a frequent flutist for the Ballet West Orchestra. 


Chapman gave her solo debut at the age of 12 with the Las Vegas Philharmonic. She is a prizewinner of the New York Flute Club Young Artist Competition, Classics Alive Young Artists Competition, and the National Society of Arts and Letter Young Artists Competition, among others. Chapman was under management as a solo artist for Classics Alive Artists, and has performed in Japan, Germany, France, and across the United States.


An avid chamber musician, Chapman is a former and founding member of Emissary Quartet and has performed with EQ at Fischoff, the National Flute Association Convention, and in Boston, NYC, Pittsburgh, Iowa, and Utah residencies.


Chapman holds a Bachelors degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a Masters degree from The University of Texas at Austin. Her primary teachers include Jeanne Baxtresser, Marianne Gedigian, and Cynthia Mann.

Chapman resides in Plano, TX with her husband and four children.
