She taught at Chethams School of Music for 16 years before moving to Sweden where she has a private flute studio as well as teaching at Vänersborg School of Music.

Gitte visits London regularly coaching students from all over the world into the music profession and frequently gives classes at conservatories such as Royal College of Music, Royal Northern College of Music, Cologne University of Music, and Gothenburg Academy of Music. She coaches the flute section in the Swedish National Youth Orchestra and is founder of Nordic Flute International Summer School.
