If you’ve always wanted to tap into a beautifully resonant flute tone but are not sure how, then this flute workshop is for you! Spend a day with American flautist and teacher Jessica in Guildford to learn techniques to simplify the mystery of a stunning tone no matter which genre you play. Replace tone development dread with confidence and delight. Learn contemporary flute techniques that will help you refine, strengthen and deepen your understanding of the tools needed to create resonance in your playing. We’ll go beyond ‘just playing long notes’ and delve into topics such as extended techniques, vibrato, dynamic control and breathwork.
At the end of this one-day workshop you will be able to
Explore how your flute headjoint, body posture, mouth and throat positioning can be tweaked for your best sound
Learn a variety of exercises that you can put into your daily practice routine to deepen into refining dynamics, articulation, lip flexibility and vibrato control
Learn a variety of new contemporary/ extended flute techniques like singing and playing, harmonics and multiphonics, just to name a few!
