The Flute Scale Workshop 
Learn your scales - improve your playing!

Feeling frustrated.png

Do you struggle with your scales? Then you are not alone. They are challenging and at times quite boring to play, besides, working through them on your own means you usually lose motivation pretty quickly.


So, let's change all of that. We are kicking off the Flute Scale Workshop on the 25th of October. This is a step-by-step course that will not only help you to learn your scales, but also help you improve your tone, articulation, finger technique, breathing, and more! Best of all, we are all doing this together, as a community, so when you are tempted to slack off we will help keep you on track.


The course will give you access to:
              Weekly instruction videos and practice resources to help guide your practice
              A digital copy of my brand new Flute Sale Book that we are launching along with the course!

              Access to The Flute Practice Club group for the duration of the course

Let's Hang Out
Scales, Scales, Scales!

So many of you may not consider yourselves musicians, yet you are! You play an instrument and you make music, no matter how simple, and that makes you an amateur musician. Wooohooo! So, let's chat a bit more about this and what it takes to grow your musician muscles.

What is this Hangout all about?

Once a month a group of players from all over the world meets online on Zoom. We chat, share some stories and I give all of you a chance to ask me all your flute-related questions. For those of you who are a bit camera-shy, you can join these sessions and leave your camera off, meaning you can be with others without even showing your face! Occasionally, we also invite other flute teachers, and players in the flute world to join us and we have a moment to ask them some of our big questions too. Sound fun?

Tackling your practice
An 8 Week journey through the Trevor Wye practice books 

This book is probably one of the most useful books around, yet it can be incredibly overwhelming for many players, especially developing players. So, this course offers you two things:

 

1. A guide through all six books, step by step with practice plans and practice suggestions.  

2. Alternative exercises and practice resources for the less advanced players to help you bridge the gap between where you are now, and where you need to be to be able to effectively tackle Trevor Wye's materials.

This course will run on Patreon and will be at your own pace. We kick off on the 16th of June and each week there will be a video with practice plans and resources, however, you can work at whatever pace suits you! Ready to tackle your practice?

Performance Practice Workshop with Dr Bridget Rennie-Salonen

Performance Practice Workshop.png

Performance can be scary, whether we perform for our cat, spouse, friends, or strangers. So often I have heard of players who are afraid to let their neighbors hear them play or practice. Even if we do not intend to perform for anyone, our lack of confidence, while playing, inhibits our ability to express ourselves freely and find joy in our playing and practice. So, are you ready to face your fear?

 

This month, we take a deep look at our anxieties around performance and practice and how to manage them. Dr Bridget Rennie-Salonen, an esteemed player, performer, and educator, guides us through some helpful and practical ways to master ourselves better and perform with more confidence. You can learn more about Bridget, our resident well-being expert, here

 

Cost: $20 which you can pay this quickly and easily on PayPal (if you sign up using the link below, I take you through this process step by step). Free for all members of my technique and performers classes. ​

 

Just hit the sign-up button below and I will walk you through the process step by step.
