Laurel Ann Maurer

I am a Vermont based flutist, and enjoy the dual roles of performer and teacher. I am also the artistic director of Vermont Virtuosi. I have recorded over a dozen CDs and 2 were nominated for Grammy Awards (2004). I play on Miyazawa Flutes and am a Miyazawa Artist. I am also a Suzuki certified Teacher Trainer and Flute instructor. I grew up in Seattle, Washington, went to college in New York City, lived for a while near Salt Lake City, Utah and now am based in Barre, Vermont. I travel to many fascinating places to perform and teach. My flute gigs have taken me to Armenia, Japan, Monte Carlo and all over the USA. I hope one day to get to Hawaii (maybe next winter?). There is plenty to read here, and you can contact me too. I would love to hear from you!!
