Tyler ISD students spend afternoon in Flute Master Class led by professional flutist

February 6, 2018


Tyler ISD middle and high school students recently spent the afternoon crafting their flute skills under the direction of professional flutist Ms. Mary Karen Clardy. Boulter Middle School hosted the Flute Master Class event with over 100 students in attendance. 


“Ms. Clardy has held two master classes in Tyler ISD over the years in addition to this year’s class,” Boulter band teacher Karen Norman said. “Through these master classes, students gain a better understanding of how to play the flute and an appreciation of the opportunity to meet, talk to and ask questions of one of the most outstanding flutist known to many throughout the world.”


Regents Professor of Flute at the University of North Texas, Ms. Clardy appears as soloist and chamber artist throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Britain, Europe, Asia and South America. Acclaimed in the Dallas Morning News for her virtuosity and effortless fluidity, Ms. Clardy was featured on NPR’s Performance Today in a recent concert in Dallas’ Meyerson Symphony Hall. Renowned as a teacher, she regularly presents master classes at home and abroad, where her students are consistent winners of international and national competitions, holding prestigious orchestral and faculty positions throughout the world.
