Ann Cameron Pearce co-founded (in 1986) the Raleigh Flute Choir, a chamber ensemble of nine professionals, which has inspired many of her pieces. She specialized in playing the contrabass flute for 16 years. Her experiences through many years of teaching privately in her home studio and over twenty years as adjunct flute instructor at Saint Mary’s School have influenced her creative energies. Her other area of musical expertise flourished through being director of handbells at Highland United Methodist Church for 31 years.
Born in 1945, Pearce is a Raleigh native. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of NC at Chapel Hill and her master’s from Duke University. Her primary flute teachers were Mark Thomas and Earl Slocum. Many of her 118 flute choir arrangements and compositions have received high recognition from the National Flute Association’s Newly Published Music Competition.
In July 2011, she and her son, Jason Pearce, established this electronic sheet music publishing company.
