Many thanks to all of our fantastic Flute Orchestra flutists! You all have been such troopers and I hope you have had fun with our “Pop-Cycle” this spring!
Check our Dropbox folder to watch the final videos of our tunes! Wowza – such talent! 🙂 (and there’s a surprise with one of our tunes – let me know what you think!)
Thanks for all your hard work and great effort! I think we’ve made great progress playing with drum tracks, playing with accurate – syncopated rhythms, playing with dynamics, and offering poised and confident recordings. Hopefully, you also gained some skills to help you with sight-reading, and learned a bit about French flute playing from Ransom Wilson.
It’s been a great term!
Take care and have a fabulous summer!
JOIN THE GLOBAL EFFORT to record a piece and honor a composer! Some of us learned this tune last term (Rose Cottage from Gaelic Offering by Catherine McMichael) – so make up Upbeat recording and join in the fun! Did you know that 2021 is the 25th anniversary of the publication of Catherine McMichael’s wonderful flute quartet, A Gaelic Offering? To celebrate, ALRY Publications is putting together a video tribute to present to Catherine on June 12th as part of the Southeast Michigan Flute Association Flute Ensemble Festival. – it’s supposed to be a secret and a surprise to her! 🙂
St Patrick’s Day 2021 — Wm. S. Haynes Co. Watch this video – and play this beautiful piece! (maybe you want to do this for your independent project 🙂 ) Print out the music and play along with the materials they have. Lovely!
Wishing you happy and healthy!
