Those who studied with Moyse from his own books undoubtedly have a greater insight into the way of going about practicing them" - Trevor Wye
Flutist Eleanor Lawrence had an active career as an orchestra player, chamber musician, teacher and soloist. During college and graduate school, she studied with James Pappoutsakis, who played in the Boston Symphony Orchestra for many years and taught at the New England Conservatory of Music. Following graduation, she studied for two years with William Kincaid, famous solo flutist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and later with Marcel Moyse, former Professor of Flute at the Paris Conservatory. In her own teaching she combines these two important traditions - the American and the French.
After receiving a master's degree at New England Conservatory, Ms. Lawrence came to New York City where she performed as a member of the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski, and played with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic as well as with Broadway shows, contemporary music groups and orchestras such as the Brooklyn Philharmonic. After participating in and being inspired by the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, Ms. Lawrence founded the Monomoy Chamber Ensemble which has thrived for over thirty summers on Cape Cod. Her master classes in flute, also on the Cape, were attended by flutists from all over the U.S. and abroad.
