Youth Flute Day: Improvisation

Ellen Burr gave attendees at the Youth Flute Day event an opportunity to step away from the printed page and try their hand at free improvisation! Burr’s energy and creative spirit kept those who attended this session a confidence-building, well-guided experience into the world of experimentation when it comes to producing sounds on the flute. She led students from simple activities to ones that invited more creativity as the students continued to take musical risks. The experience was enjoyed by all!
