    Amanda R. Morrison

    Clarinet

    Amanda Morrison 2013-2014 Vitae.docx

     As a fourth grader, Amanda Morrison stubbornly declared that she WOULD NOT play an instrument in the school band!  With prodding from her musically knowledgeable and insistent parents, she reluctantly and irately chose to play the clarinet.  In a very short time (and much to her surprise!), a love affair with the clarinet commenced and the once stubborn young girl aspired to be a professional clarinetist.

       Ms. Morrison has been appointed to the position of Adjunct Professor of Clarinet at West Liberty University beginning the Fall of 2014.  As an educator, Dr. Morrison served on the faculties of Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, Florida, Musik Innovations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Red River Chamber Music Festival in Grand Forks, North Dakota.  She has also taught private lessons, instructed master classes, coached chamber ensembles, and adjudicated music festivals as a clarinet teaching assistant during her MM and DM degrees at Florida State University.  In 2006, Dr. Morrison helped institute a wind program in which she coached chamber music and orchestral groups at the Musik Innovations Summer Chamber Music Camp in Pittsburgh. Over 15 years of teaching, she has maintained an active schedule as a private clarinet instructor and clarinet clinician; leading master classes and ensemble coachings.

      As a performer, Dr. Morrison’s recent solo engagements have included performances at the NACWPI National Convention in Gainesville, Florida as well as lectures and recitals at colleges and universities in Arkansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.  As a chamber musician, she is a founding member of The PM Woodwind Project, a flute and clarinet duo committed to sharing education-based chamber and solo music performances with the public. As the clarinetist with the chamber music ensembles, Trio Asterisco and the Baiger Duo, Amanda toured Midwestern states performing and providing master classes to both young musicians and the general community.   Dr. Morrison has also been a clarinetist with the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra, the Butler Symphony Orchestra, the St. Vincent Camerata, and the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival.  She has collaborated with such noted musicians as Lorin Maazel, Vladimir Feltzman, Krzysztof Penderecki, Janos Starker, William Preucil, and Ronan Tynan as an orchestral clarinetist.

      A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Amanda earned a BM degree from Duquesne University as a student of Mark Nuccio and MM and DM degrees from Florida State University as a student of both Dr. Deborah Bish and Dr. Frank Kowalsky.  Other notable private clarinet teachers throughout her education include Michael Rusinek, Ron Samuels, Dr. Rebecca Rischin, Dr. D. Ray McClellan, and Mary Beth Malek.
