Aimee M Simpson Resume

      I am a 2005 Liberal Arts college graduate of West Liberty State College/University. I have been playing the flute for seventeen years, and within this time, I have also learned how to play the piccolo, alto flute, and bass flute. While I was in college to become a Music Education Major, I was able to perform in the pit orchestra for Wheeling Jesuits' theater production of "Carnival" as well as serve as the woodwind instructor at my local high school's Summer Band Camp. I auditioned and performed for the 2003 and 2004 Honors Recital for West Liberty State College/University, and I also had the opportunity to perform my own Senior Recital in May of 2004. Since September of 2007, I have been a member of the Pittsburgh City Flutes and the Pittsburgh Flute Academy. Within that time, the Pittsburgh City Flutes have performed at the Benedum Center for the performing arts, Carnegie Music Hall, Phipps Conservatory, and the First Trinity Lutheran Church in Pittsburgh, PA; we have also played at the Newlonsburg Music Academy located at the Newlonsburg Presbyterian Church in Murrysville, PA. Aside from this group, I have also been performing with the West Liberty State College/University Concert Band when they were in need of a piccoloist. On May 10, 2008, I performed my own Flute Recital at the First Trinity Lutheran Church in Pittsburgh, PA and on April 17, 2010, I had the honor to serve as a judge for the 2010 Flute Adjudication Festival that was in conjunction with the Third Young Artist Competition thanks to Mrs. Wendy Webb Kumer. In my spare time, I have performed for a few weddings and taught a couple beginner flute players. Now I am looking into performing for weddings and teaching private lessons as a second job, so if you would be interested in booking a gig...please feel free to contact me!
