FluteFling classes will resume on Thursday September 4th and run into early December. There will be two groups once again, running alternate weeks for a total of seven classes each.
I have found description of classes and experience levels in traditional music settings to be limiting as people learn and acquire skills at different rates and in different circumstances. For simplification I have opted to rename them in order to show an approximate sense of progression:
- Flute and whistle 1: for complete beginners and those with less than 1-2 years experience.
- Flute and whistle 2: for those with about 2-3 years experience
- Flute and whistle 3: for those with about 3-4 years experience or more.
The regular Thursday night classes will be for Flute and whistle 2 and 3 only, following on from previous years.
I am delighted to say that Flute and whistle 1 will be organised and run by the multi-talented and inspiring Amble Skuse, who works and teaches in the Edinburgh area and with Horsecross Arts in Perth. An experienced teacher in many settings, I am looking forward to liaising with Amble in this new partnership.
Update: unfortunately the Flute and whistle 1 class does not have sufficient numbers to run at the moment. If interested, please contact Amble and a new session will be organised when it will be possible to go ahead.
