Hilary has also been fortunate to share her passion for flute pedagogy through masterclasses and workshops through the Northeast region, including most recently at the New Jersey Symphony’s FluteYou event and the Rochester Flute Association. She continues to enjoy teaching as a faculty member at the Diller-Quaile School of Music in New York City, as a woodwind coach for the New Jersey Youth Symphony, and in her role as a professor at Iona College, where she teaches courses in Music in World Cultures, Women in Music, and Music in Film.
