Minister of Music

One of the most musically talented students I have ever taught” (Dr. Christine Gustafson, Professor of Flute, East Carolina University)

“Her playing is simply remarkable” (Carol Wincenc, world renowned solo flutist and professor at the Julliard School and the State University of New York at Stony Brook)

Flutist Tunisia Bullock has been wowing audiences with her flute playing for over fifteen years.

After high school, Tunisia attended Meredith College where she received several academic and music scholarships. As a Flute Performance major, Tunisia excelled in her studies under the musical teachings of Pamela Nelson and Rosene Rohrer. She graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree and Spanish Literature and Vocal Performance double minors in the spring of 2006.

In August 2008, Tunisia started her graduate studies at East Carolina University under the tutelage of Dr. Christine Gustafson. While at East Carolina, Tunisia held a competitive teaching assistantship, also under the guidance of Dr. Gustafson, and in May of 2010, Tunisia graduated with a Master of Music degree in Flute Performance.

Formerly the Adjunct Flute Professor at Methodist University, Tunisia has traveled the country, from New York to Los Angeles, playing for world renowned flutists such as Jim Walker, who called Tunisia a “rock star flutist,” Goran Marcusson, Amy Porter, Valerie Coleman, Dr. Brad Garner, famed flute soloist Carol Wincenc who described Tunisia as “simply remarkable,” and former Principal Flutist of the New York Philharmonic Jeanne Baxtresser, who described Tunisia’s playing as, “brilliant.”

Currently, Tunisia is a highly sought after masterclass clinician, adjudicator, and performer. When not teaching or performing locally or regionally, she maintains a private flute studio at her home in Rocky Mount where her students have consistently ranked as the best middle and high school flute players in the state.

Tunisia is currently a doctoral candidate in public health epidemiology at Capella University. She has aspirations of becoming an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control or the National Institutes of Health. She would also like to hold a professorship at college or university that would allow her the opportunity to both teach and conduct research in the areas of chronic disease management and infectious diseases.
