Flute Day - All Things Flute!

Sunday 8 October 2017
11am - 5pm

Course fee £20

Reading Music Centre, Stoneham Court, 100 Cockney Hill, Reading, RG30 4EZ

Course leader: Ben Copeman

A diverse day of masterclasses, workshops and all things flute! Our masterclass will be lead by professional flautist Andy Findon from Pearl Flutes; Andy is a freelance musician with an expansive CV including working extensively with the Michael Nyman Band and in the West End. His masterclass will give you tips on technique, and will provide advice on learning/performing orchestral extracts and solo chamber works for auditions. There will be a question and answer session that will give you an insight into the professional work of this chamber, orchestral and ethnic flute specialist.

Flute players of grade 2 and above can apply to either participate in the masterclass, or observe the masterclass without participating.

Throughout the day there will also be a range of workshops compromising tone development and flute maintenance, as well as providing the opportunity to 'have a go' at playing a variety of ethnic instruments. The specialist woodwind retailer Top Wind from London will be available throughout the day showcasing different flutes, accessories and music. The day will culminate in a massed flute ensemble in preparation for a mini-performance to friends and family at 5pm.

 

Participants will need

  • Instrument (and music if playing in masterclass)
  • Lunch, snacks and a drink
  • Money to spend at Top Wind’s trade stand.
