I am pleased to offer incoming 6th, 7th, & 8th grade flute players at Cedar Park Middle School the opportunity to get a head start before school starts! Band directors have told me they see a huge improvement in overall skill level when kids sign up for camp before school begins.
August 6-10, 2018 at Cedar Park Middle School
Beginner Camp (9:00-10:00AM, for incoming 6th grade) focuses on teaching beginning concepts of posture, air, embouchure, instrument assembly, hand position, first sounds and getting the basics of playing the instrument. We review how to read music, play rhythm games, and start building breath capacity so students have enough air to play effectively. I provide silk cleaning cloths for all attendees.
Head Start Region Camp (10:30-11:30AM, 7th & 8th grade) gives students the opportunity to get back in shape and learn the District etudes and scales before school begins! We will review basics of posture, air, breathing, and tone production, but will focus heavily on scales and region etudes. All students need to bring is their instrument and a pencil! I provide silk cleaning cloths for all attendees.
Floot Fire Austin
I also am happy to be one of many fantastic teachers involved with the Austin contingent of Floot Fire Camp! This camp gives students the opportunity to study many different subjects related to music and flute playing. The camp includes classes on: breathing, tone, articulation, intonation, vibrato, technique, stage presence, practice habits, body mapping, big flutes, Alexander Technique, yoga for flutists, and much more! Students also get a chance to listen to a professional recital everyday, participate in a masterclass, play chamber music, and play in flute choir. You can register online here.
