Northwest Missouri State University Associate Professor Dr. Rebecca Dunnell will present a clinic at the Florida Flute Association Convention Jan. 25, in Orlando Fla., titled “Etudes that Engage!”

The 38th Annual Florida Flute Convention is a three-day event filled with competitions, concerts, exhibits and presentations. It is headlined this year by international flutist and composer Ian Clarke.

Dunnell’s clinic introduces her arrangements of etudes by Joachim Andersen, highlighting musical aspects of the etudes through teacher and student playing together. By communicating through shared music-making, the student experiences the musicality of the etude and then approaches the work of mastering the original solo etude with a fully-conceptualized goal, Dunnell said.

The arrangements were inspired by Dunnell’s experiences as a student of legendary French flutist Marcel Moyse – work she continues to this day with Northwest students.

Dunnell joined the Northwest faculty in 2002 and teaches courses that include Music Literature and History: Antiquity-Renaissance, Music Literature and History: Baroque and Classical, World Music, Foundations of Music Theory and Enjoyment of Music.
