It's the end of another year at The Global Flute Studio! It's been a wonderful year, with our first studio winter concert at Care One in Teaneck, NJ, on December 3rd. Yesterday, we had our second annual North Jersey Regional Band Audition Repertoire Master Class for flutists in grades 7-12. We were a small group because of this terrible cold that's going around (my own daughters have it, too), but we learned a lot. Two of the Global Flute Studio professional-level students performed to demonstrate (because our middle and high school students were shy this year), and professional-level student Lynn Saltiel, LCSW, also led students in a guided meditation as part of our discussion of performance anxiety in the audition room. This is an annual event, and we hope to have increased attendance every year.
In the new year, we'll be starting a new session of our theory for improvisation class, level 1A. This is the most elementary level, so even if you don't know all of your major scales yet, you can learn in this class. There will be a separate blog post with details about the course.
We hope you're having a wonderful winter holiday season, full of love, fellowship, and recreation!
