FluteFling Scottish Flute Weekend All-day Workshop 2019
The 6th annual FluteFling Scottish Flute Weekend will take place in Edinburgh 26-28 April 2019. Promoting the traditional flute revival and whistle playing in Scotland, the event centres upon a day of workshops, special guests and sessions.
This year, multi-instrumentalist Claire Mann returns as a tutor after last years guest appearance. She will be joined by Edinburghs Rebecca Knorr, who has recorded and performed widely and has taught flute and whistle with the Scots Music Group, The Royal Conservertoire in Glasgow and the School of Excellence in Traditional Music at Plockton.
With a third tutor to be announced, all participants will have a chance to be taught by all tutors, regardless of playing level. This is a great opportunity for students to experience different styles and approaches to learning and performing traditional music on flutes and whistles in this much-anticipated event.
Whistlers should be playing whistles or low whistles in D and be beyond the complete beginner stage. There will also be space for Beginner flute players with 1-3 years experience as well as those with more than 3 years experience. These are rough guides only, please get in touch if you are not sure.
The workshop is open to Boehm system (metal, classical) musicians and those playing simple system wooden flutes (keyed or unkeyed) alike. This is an opportunity to explore and develop your playing in the context of Scottish traditional music, whichever instrument you play.
Topics covered will include:
-different playing styles
-breathing, phrasing and tone improvement
Tickets on the door will be £55/ £45 so make sure you book in advance to get a cheaper price.
