Anne-Marie's Tuition Fund
Organized by: Anne-Marie Houy
Hello! My name is Anne-Marie Houy, and I am a nerdy musician of the flutist variety. I currently live in Texas and keep an exciting schedule, which includes teaching private flute lessons in the Austin area and also serving in an adjunct position for the Baylor University School of Music.
Earlier this year, I was pleased to learn that I will be joining a handful of other musicians to study with the renowned flutist Robert Dick this fall! (He is "known worldwide for creating revolutionary visions of the flute's musical role"). His flute studio is based in New York City and our work will focus on contemporary music for flute and also how to teach this music and the extended techniques that are required on the instrument. This opportunity is EXACTLY in line with my passion to share new music and to make contemporary music approachable, both for performers and for listeners. Through this, I feel that God has given me a great opportunity to better equip myself to teach and share the joy of new and current music.
The reason I made this fundraising page is because the Studio tuition is pricey (no surprises there). The cost for the Studio is $7,000 and I will also be paying living expenses to be in New York City from September to December. I consider myself careful and conscientious when it comes to finances, but I am also realistic in knowing that this is a steep sum of money for me currently. Of course I have already started saving and I hope to also have a job while in NYC, but every monetary gift helps (both my stress level and my pocketbook) :)
Please prayerfully consider giving, and also feel free to check out my website to get to know more about me and my musical pursuits: annemariehouy.com
Thank you! Love to you all!
