Flute Progressions

This course has been designed to follow on from Kirsten's previous course titled 'Flute Foundations'. The aim of the course is to take flute players whom have already mastered the basics of tone production, ornamentation and intonation up to the next level of playing. The 'building blocks' that were introduced in 'Flute Foundations' will be expanded upon. Focus will be placed on more advanced ornamentation: the crann, the short roll and the bounce. Phrasing and breathing will also feature as will the use of the G# key. It is not a prerequisite to have a keyed flute for this course; in the occasional instance where a key is used, Kirsten presents alternative melodic 'turns' for those with keyless flutes. Reference will be made to the exercises presented in 'Flute Foundations' throughout this course.
