Bristol Flute Day: Explore tips and techniques to enhance your tone
A one day flute course with Dr. Jessica Quiñones (www.JQflute.com)
Description: If you’ve always wanted to tap into a beautifully resonant flute tone but are not sure how, then this flute workshop is for you! Come visit Bristol (it’s been recently voted the best place to live in the UK!). Spend a day with American flautist and teacher Jessica in the heart of the city to learn techniques to simplify the mystery of a stunning tone no matter which genre you play. Replace tone development dread with confidence and delight. Learn contemporary flute techniques that will help you refine, strengthen and deepen your understanding of the tools needed to create resonance in your playing. We’ll go beyond ‘just playing long notes’ and delve into topics such as extended techniques, vibrato, dynamic control and breathwork.
At the end of this one-day workshop you will be able to
- Explore how your flute headjoint, body posture, mouth and throat positioning can be tweaked for your best sound
- Learn a variety of exercises that you can put into your daily practice routine to deepen into refining dynamics, articulation, lip flexibility and vibrato control
- Learn a variety of new contemporary/ extended flute techniques like singing and playing, harmonics and multiphonics, just to name a few!
Plus: Tea, coffee, fruit, biscuits and other goodies will be provided for you during your breaktimes.
Requirements: Suitable for players that are Gr. 3+ to advanced, ages 18+ only.
Please note: This workshop is a bespoke event designed around the attendees registered. Surveys asking about your playing level and experience will be sent out before the event.
Kindly note that your registration fee is non-refundable, so please book mindfully.
