The Flute Pedagogy of Raymond Guiot

Nicaulis A Alliey Rodriguez, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


Raymond Guiot (b. 1930) is a representative of the Modern French Flute School, and a graduate of the class of legendary flutist Marcel Moyse (1889-1984) at the Paris Conservatoire in 1947. His prolific career, spanning from the early 1950s to the present day, includes not only his work as a highly respected classical performer and pedagogue, but also as a renowned popular musician, recording artist, and composer. Despite his long artistic and pedagogical career, his outstanding teaching work, developed in conservatories and institutions in France and Italy--and in workshops, masterclasses and summer academies around the world--and despite the large number of his students having developed successful artistic careers, Raymond Guiot is one of the least known premier French flute pedagogues at the international level. This research seeks to introduce this figure of the Modern French Flute School—the performer, the composer, and especially the pedagogue—to both the flute world and the larger music community. The author details, through her first-hand experience as a former student of Guiot and through a series of interviews with fellow former students and Guiot himself, the outstanding pedagogical principles of this musician. This study presents the influence of the ideas of Marcel Moyse and the Paris Conservatory traditions on his teaching, as well as the influence of his popular music experience, and also his own particular approach to interpretation and expression, general flute technique, and the development of an artistic personality. This document presents Guiot’s pedagogy and his contributions to the realm of the flute performance, including an account of his work as a performer and as a flute teacher, a genealogy of the Modern French Flute School, a catalogue of his compositions, and a list of his recordings.
