About this class:
In the Spring 2018 session of this course, we will focus on how to
refine our playing, either when improvising or playing songs. We'll
also work on ornamentation and recognizing note patterns. Along the
way, we'll improve our technique and skills.
Some topics may include:
♦ Developing smooth finger transitions
♦ Improvising with new scales
♦ Understanding rhythmic patterns
♦ Learning new songs
* A pentatonic Native American flute is required for this class. If
you need one, a high quality flute will be provided upon request for
an additional $70.
