The classes are aimed at people interested in learning or developing their music on the wooden simple system flute, also known as the Irish flute.
Tin whistle and Boehm system (modern “classical” or orchestral flute) players are also welcome, as are those returning to the instrument after some time away from playing.
The classes take place in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and will focus on a combination of repertoire and technique, with an emphasis on learning by ear, supported by sheet music. The precise details will depend upon numbers and ability.
The classes will run on alternate Thursdays, but it may also be possible to run two classes on one evening. I am also looking into running a separate whistle class this year again, after a number of enquiries.
If you are interested, please get in touch: gordon[at]theflowmusic[dot]co[dot]uk
- The classes will run on Thursdays 7.30-9.00
- Price: £8 per class in advance.
- Venue: St James Church, Portobello.
