This workshop will provide participants with efficient and practical approaches to develop or rediscover foundations in tone and finger technique. As tone and technical practice are a significant part of a flutist’s musical endeavors, this session is designed to revitalize how flutists can explore these fundamentals and focus on them with concise and effective practice methods. It will be a multifaceted affair, including exercises; presentations of tools and techniques; play-along opportunities; time for reflection, goal-setting, and routine-planning; and a Q and A session.
Please Note: For the technique portion of the workshop, there will be moments for you to try the tools in the privacy of your space. I highly encourage you to bring a hard scale/technique pattern OR 1-3 measures of hard passage in an etude or piece so you can explore them and ask any questions.
