Elder Conservatorium of Music

Anna Henwood is a Doctor of Philosophy candidate at the University of Adelaide and gratefully acknowledges the support she receives for her research through the provision of an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship. Anna’s thesis relates to the flute pedagogy and contribution of her teacher, Raymond Guiot, a student of Marcel Moyse, flute teacher of the 1900s and writer of many flute books.

Anna has a rich musical, linguistic, and educational background, and her experiences in Australia and overseas have helped shape her strong intercultural and teaching skills. Anna accepted a full scholarship for Bachelor of Music (Performance) study at Flinders Street School of Music, offered to her following her year twelve results for Performance and Performance Special Study. It was after year twelve that Anna met Raymond Guiot in Rome and decided to one day return and study with him in Italy. After graduating with Honours in Performance at the Elder Conservatorium, Anna completed a three-year course with Raymond Guiot at the Italian Flute Academy in Rome and was awarded a First Prize on examination.

I am a Doctor of Philosophy candidate researching flute pedagogy in Italy and the contribution of key flautists. The intercultural and intersemiotic nature of my research requires a high level of advanced language, music and education skills.
