FluteFling Scottish Flute Weekend All-day Workshop 2018
The 5th annual FluteFling Scottish Flute Weekend will take place in Edinburgh 20-22 April 2018 and has been expanded to include whistles and low whistles. Promoting the traditional flute revival and whistle playing in Scotland, the event centres upon a day of workshops, special guests and sessions.
Workshop tutors Niall Kenny, Sharon Creasey and Kenny Hadden have a broad and deep range of experience and will be teaching all three groups of participants beginners on flute, experienced flute players and experienced whistle players alike. This is a great opportunity for students to experience different styles and approaches to learning and performing traditional music on flutes and whistles in what promises to be an inspirational event.
This year we have expanded the event to welcome whistles and low whistles. 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 up to 2 years experience as well as those with more than 2 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.
The workshop will be followed by a meal (not included in ticket price) and a traditional music session, which will be free and open to all.
Updates and further details will be posted on www.flutefling.co.uk
