Ms. Reynolds is a talented musician who has performed for many years. Her training, which began at home, continued under the instruction of Chicago Symphony flutist Arthur Kitti, then with Michel Debost in Paris, France, and Marcel Moyse in Brattleboro, VT. Early in her career, she found work as a freelance performer with ONCE Festivals in Ann Arbor, MI, between 1961 and 1963 and with the American Wind Ensemble in Pittsburgh, PA, in 1962.

For several years during the late 1960s, Ms. Reynolds co-organized the CROSS TALK INTERMEDIA series in Tokyo. She also co-organized three other festivals, conducted numerous workshops with the San Diego Youth Orchestra between 1979 and 1986, and participated as an adjudicator of solo and ensemble festivals in San Diego during the 1980s. She was a selection jurist for the Sibelius Academy Music Festival at Finlandia University between 1999 and 2008 and has done work as a recording artist of electronic and instrumental music over the years as well.

Outside of her career in music, Ms. Reynolds owns her own company as a graphic designer. She specializes in posters, programs, logos, websites and printed score covers. She notably began designing posters in the 1960s for special events, concerts and festivals in Tokyo. Ms. Reynolds has established and maintains four comprehensive websites and her work has appeared on numerous CD covers and on C.F. Peters music publications.

Ms. Reynolds is a longtime member of the Music Teachers National Association, the National Flute Association, the American Federation of Musicians and Finlandia University Finnish Council in America. She is an elected member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.

She has notably held a Bachelor of Music in music theory, French and flute from the University of Michigan since 1962 and a Master of Arts in theoretical studies from the University of California, San Diego, since 1975.

Born in Baraga, MI, Ms. Reynolds' mother was a professional pianist and her father was a conductor.
