Young Member Resources

Welcome to the NFA’s resource library for young members. Below, you will find articles, videos, and links to other materials written and contributed by current NFA members. Selected for their relevance to our pre-college members, these resources include fingering and trill charts, lists of age-appropriate masterclasses, games, and articles that explore topics of special interest to young flutists. 

If you are a current NFA member and would like to contribute to this page, please contact Katherine Emeneth at katherine@emeneth.com.
