Flutist-composer Bonnie McAlvin is fascinated by multiphonics, a special technique similar to ‘double-stops’ on a string instrument. She specializes in flute music, and has written music for various instrumental combinations: flute and piano; flute, viola and cello; flute, violin and organ; flute and countertenor; and of course, solo flute. Bonnie teaches music theory, composition, and flute at the Special Music School of New York City (Kaufman Center, Manhattan), at the Lucy Moses School, at Music & Arts Center of Lindenhurst, NY, and at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY.
