I am excited to return as Yamaha flute masterclass clinician at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis this week. It is inspiring to work with over 200 talented middle and high school flutists!
If you will be there, please say hello!
While serving as Yamaha flute masterclass clinician at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis, I played Syrinx in a conference room at the JW Marriott hotel, where the festival took place. Does the Syrinx have the feel of preceding a meeting, or following one?
I performed Syrinx for flutists participating in my third masterclass of four at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis. In speaking with the high school and middle school flutists over two days of masterclasses, I was interested to hear that Debussy’s Syrinx is one of their most familiar and beloved pieces in the repertoire.
I played Syrinx for several flutists who lingered to chat after one of my masterclasses at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis, presented by Yamaha. It was great fun to get to know these talented, enthusiastic students!
While in Indianapolis for the Music for All National Festival, we ate at Osteria Pronto at the JW Marriott where we stayed and where the festival took place. The food and Italian wine were delicious and the room lined with bottles of wine was an attractive setting for Syrinx. Just translate “vino” to “vin”!
Thank you to manager Enza Schoettle and server Mark R. for welcoming me to play at the osteria.
I had a wonderful time as Yamaha masterclass clinician at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis the past few days. It is an honor to represent my instrument at this event which brings together the top high school bands and orchestras in America. I taught four masterclasses – three for high school and one for middle school flutists – for around 220 flutists in total. The kids are talented and dedicated, and a great pleasure to get to know. Here is a Syrinx I performed at one of my masterclasses.
I am excited to be going to Indianapolis tomorrow to serve as Yamaha flute clinician at the Music for All National Festival. I will be teaching masterclasses for middle and high school flutists from throughout the US who were selected to attend the festival along with their bands and orchestras. I am honored to work with these talented young musicians, to meet their devoted ensemble directors and instructors, and to participate along with a team of wonderful Yamaha artists in each instrument.
