NEW! —
 We've launched an elegant, user-friendly reading experience: a dedicated Flutist Quarterly website. On the website, which replaces the flip book and comes at no additional cost to NFA members, you can focus on one article at a time, yet easily navigate at any time to related articles or other sections of the magazine. And while the format will look a little different, it's still the content you've come to know and love over the years: a curated variety of well researched scholarly articles by trusted comrades in the flute community. Click the button below to visit the site - which starts with Volume 47, No. 1 (Fall 2021) - using your NFA credentials to log in.

The Fall 2022 Issue

In this issue:


This fall, we begin by remembering a pioneer of the flute world with two remembrances to trailblazing flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer. Then, we look back at the beautiful thoughts and photos shared of the NFA's 50th Anniversary Convention. It was certainly a celebration befitting these marvelous past 50 years!

Dmytro Gnativ leads us through a fantastic primer on Ukrainian music. Jennie Oh Brown interviews flutist and activist Lorin Green on her career so far and the role of diversity in the flute world. Karen North shares the joys and challenges of teaching beginner flute, providing tips and tricks from her 40 years as a teacher. There are also articles from the committees, a composer spotlight, news, reviews and more!

About The Flutist Quarterly

The Flutist Quarterly, the flagship member publication of the National Flute Association, was founded more than four decades ago, dating back almost as far as the organization itself. Recognized throughout the international flute community for its quality and visual appeal, The Flutist Quarterly provides information and articles about the performance, study, history, manufacture, and enjoyment of flutes, flutists, and flute music. The magazine features articles written by leading flute performers, scholars, and teachers and news about developments and accomplishments in the NFA membership and flute community at large. Article topics range from breaking discoveries and new insights in research and methodologies to in-depth analyses of new works. Profiles of the world’s leading flutists and pedagogues, significant activities in communities from Boston to China and all points in-between, performance health insights, and developments in flute repair and manufacture are among topics explored in the magazine’s feature articles. Regular departments include reports on flute club activities, Annual NFA Convention news and updates, obituaries, international news, news from and about the NFA, announcements of new products, and reviews of new CDs, music, and books pertaining to flute.
