A branch of the Prelude Choir, the beginners' class is a small ensemble program for flutists in their first year playing flute. Students should be able to play at least *five* notes and will receive instruction in the basics of tone production and flute technique, such as tonguing and hand position. When ready, they will be introduced to the independence of playing ensemble music with several different parts.
Students must supply their own C flutes. This class prepares students to enter the regular Prelude choir.
New holiday beginners’ class!
By special request, we have set-up a beginner's flute class starting Wednesday 6th November. Enthusiastic young flutists should be able to read and play at least 5 notes.
Classes will be held on Wednesdays, 5:45-6:45 p.m., at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 7479 Richmond Road, 23188, beginning Wednesday, November 6, 2019.
The teacher will be Mrs. Lisa Jacobsen Stone. She earned a performance degree in flute from James Madison University, and recently retired from WJCC schools where she was a much admired middle school and high school choir director.
Assuming the class will have some holiday music ready in December, the students will be invited to perform on our Holiday concert at 7 p.m. Friday, December 13, at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. All of our flute choirs participate on this concert.
Want to play some holiday music with other flute-playing friends? Join now. We have 1spot left, join before November 13th. Please send a message with your intention to participate, and plan to bring a check for $50 made out to Flute Frenzy to your first rehearsal.
Information for 2020 classes will be available shortly.
