Spend a day with Jessica in a relaxed, friendly and supportive setting at the Wiltshire Music Centre in the gorgeous setting of Bradford on Avon.

What people are saying about Jessica's flute workshops:

"Just back at station after a fabulously inspiring & reinvigorating flute workshop with @JQflute"
-- David B. via Twitter

"There was something so much more than music that happened…When I arrived there was such an easy, relaxed welcome. It was impossible to ignore the radiance, the glow, the warmth, the love, a truly a transcendent experience…couldn't help but do well from that start." -- Sean O.

"If you play the flute and are looking to spark up your creativity, then @JQflute is the lady for you!" -- Tanya B., via Twitter

"Wow, what a great day we had last Saturday and I have really benefited from the work we did. This week I have felt so much more free in my playing, as if I've been given permission to step outside of the box called 'traditional classical flute training' into somewhere else, unknown and exciting"… -- Fiona R.

"..here was a lady who was talking about shaking up the way you think about making music, about finding your own way of doing things, breaking out of the 'box' of traditional expectations around flute playing, and really sharing your music from the heart. …Jessica absolutely 'got' what I wanted to achieve …." -- Rachel S.

"Wow, what a great day we had last Saturday and I have really benefited from the work we did. Have already been trying out some of the tonguing and vibrato techniques in our orchestra rehearsal -- Sandra F."

"Loved having the opportunity to perform and to listen and watch others perform, too. The vibrato section was great as it wasn't something that I'd understood before (and the technique section was very useful - thank you) -- Jason B."

"Great to hear and meet other flute players and to watch such a fabulous teacher in action. I’ve come away with lots to work on so expect lots of updates on my progress" — Claire. H., via Instagram"
