A message from our mentor, Linda Lukas:

Hi Everyone!

Looking forward to seeing all of you again and experiencing the wondrous sounds of a full flute choir during our “flute blast”!!

I also want to spend some time addressing your flute playing issues so please come with any questions you may have for me about anything flute-centric!

This will be fun!  See you soon!

Download your music

Please print and bring with you to the workshop!

We are hoping to have a bass flute available at the workshop - please download the bass part if you are interested in trying it.

Please note: in the Rossini many parts are divisi. If your part has two voices, please look at both and we will divide up in the workshop.

(Chorales are in four parts for standard c-flutes. We will divide up to play them as warm-ups. Please look at all four parts.)

Suggested tempos for practice:

       Bruckner: half note = 100

       Rossini: quarter note = 138--150  (work on getting the 16th notes steady at the faster tempo if you can)
