Anne Drummond Anne Drummond

Flutist, pianist, and composer Anne Drummond practices and teaches improvisational music. She has been performing internationally since 1997, and as of 2006, began writing for various chamber groups receiving critical acclamation in North America and Europe. Of late she performs frequently with her spirited sextet co-led with Lew Soloff. Drummond has a strong research interest in the cognitive neuroscience of music, particularly improvisation.

Currently she collaborates with researchers in cognitive neuroscience to study the effects of musical improvisation on the brain, and is interested in the biological basis of creativity and in relationship between music education and neuroplasticity.

Endorsed by Powell flutes, Drummond teaches master classes to aspiring flutists. Over the past seven years, she has served as adjunct faculty in composition at The New School, coached at Manhattan School of Music, adjudicated solo and ensemble competitions, and conducted seminars at the high school and college level. In June of 2013, Drummond was appointed as a lecturer at UTSA, as well joining the lab of Dr. Donald Robin at the research imaging institute in San Antonio.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
