Youth Flute Days

For student flutists ages 9 to 18

Saturday, August 11, and Sunday, August 12

As the largest annual gathering of flutists in the world, the NFA convention is a great place for students to learn more about their instrument and be inspired to take their playing to the next level. The NFA will host two exciting days of youth programming as part of the 46th Annual NFA Convention in Orlando. Bring your flute and play along!

Student flutists (and their parents and guardians) are welcome to join us for a free program on Saturday. On Sunday, attendees are encouraged to register and return for another day of fun, youth-oriented flute sessions.
