Northwest Missouri State University Professor of Music Dr. Rebecca Dunnell recently attended the National Flute Association (NFA) Convention, serving on the convention committee and coordinating master class competitions.

While Dunnell hosted master classes with world-renown flutists András Adorján and Walfrid Kujala, the four-day NFA Convention attracts international participation, with more than 3,000 flutists attending. The intense schedule includes four to five events happening simultaneously from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. This year’s convention was Aug. 9-12 in Orlando, Florida.

Dunnell served on the NFA Pedagogy Committee from 2008-2017, and was local chair when the convention took place in Kansas City, Missouri, in 2008.

Dunnell joined the Northwest faculty in 2002 and teaches applied flute and flute ensembles as well as Music Literature and History: Antiquity-Renaissance, Music Literature and History: Baroque and Classical, World Music, Foundations of Music Theory and Enjoyment of Music.

She earned her Doctor of Musical Arts and a Master of Music, both in flute performance at the University of North Carolina. She has a bachelor’s degree in flute performance from Long Island University in New York.
