Workshops - Summer 2021

 

Folk Flute

Thursday 22nd July 6.30pm-8.30pm 

A friendly and relaxed session to help classically trained players to find a more traditional sound. We will look at rhythm, ornamentation and vibrato and I will share a few tricks and tunes and hopefully leave you feeling that you can play traditional music without feeling like an imposter!

£25 – max 6 players

Telemann Fantasies

Thursday August 12th 6.30-8.30pm 

Have you ever had the following thoughts - 

What do I do about ornamentation, tempi, articulation, dynamics?

The movements are so long!

Baroque etiquette is frightening!

I feel like an imposter playing Telemann on a modern flute!

Telemann composed the Fantasies in an improvisatory style as a framework for personal interpretation. The works are forward-looking, cosmopolitan and above all, human. 

I hope to give you lots of ideas so that the long movements feel shorter (!) and the confidence to go with your instinct. 

Please have a look at and be prepared to play a single movement or an entire Fantaisie.

£25 – max 6 players

In Search of that elusive magic!

Thursday August 26th 6.30pm-8.30pm 

Don't you just love that amazing 'pindrop' atmosphere when a room full of people are silent?

Creating atmosphere is more than just good luck; this class will explore ways to maximise our chances of creating something very special. Please bring a piece or part of a piece of music that you would like to play - 

even 30 seconds worth is probably enough to work with.

£25 – max 6 players
