    First Friday Flute Forum

    September's Topic:  Health and Wellness for Flutists

    New this year for members, these monthly Friday night flute chats will be a way for FSGP members to connect face to face online, both to socialize and to share our love of the flute!  These chats will take place on the first Friday night of the month.  Each chat will have a different topic or focus, and may feature special guests from time to time.  

    For September's forum, join us as board member Cindy Broz and panel lead a discussion on health and wellness issues for flutists.   

    Information on how to access the meeting link will be sent to those who register by September 4th at noon.

    Paul Edmund-Davies

    "zooms in" from the UK for this participatory workshop titled

    'How to warm up economically and constructively'

    or

    'Curiosity might well have killed the cat,

    but it keeps flute players of all ages and stages very much alive!'


    This program is aimed at all ages and stages of flutists.

    Paul will provide instruction and exercises in what he refers to as the four pillars of technique, namely:

    1. Breathing and Phrasing (incorporating Sonority)
    2. Finger work
    3. Articulation
    4. Intervals

    By focusing on these four areas, with regular and dedicated practice, not only can we maintain our technical facilities on the flute, but we can also steadily improve them. 

    This presentation is described as a highly interactive and stimulating class that will hopefully keep people enthusiastic and ‘flute active’!  There will be time for Q & A throughout the session.  

    Materials will be made available in advance those that register so that you may practice them ahead of time.  

    This event is free to members who join or renew their membership by September 25th. 

    Non-members may participate for a small fee.
