Learn, rehearse, perform: making flute music together again
Facilitator: Elisabeth (Hobbs) Parry & John Alley

Join Elisabeth and John in this short online course exploring flute technique and repertoire, with opportunities to perform and work on an ensemble piece together.

In this 3-part course, we will come together to work on technique, put together a flute ensemble piece, and perform for each other with bespoke accompaniments recorded for you by our pianist, John Alley.

Elisabeth Parry will lead warm-up and rehearsal sessions, and John and Elisabeth together will work with participants to coach and encourage individual performances.
