ARRANGING FOR FLUTE CHOIRS & ENSEMBLES
Many budding composers and arrangers begin by writing for the ensemble in which they perform, a good way to hear their new works played with actual instruments. We will discuss selecting a piece for your first arrangement, copyrights, issues to consider in part writing, articulations, open voicing, and roles that piccolo, alto flute, and bass flute can play in your arrangement.

Teacher Toolkit:Troubleshooting student problems with an intuitive approach
Do you teach? Come along to this interactive workshop and discover the many factors that impact sound production and tone quality, and the symptoms that we see and hear when things aren't working as they should. The aim is to begin to notice student problems, to diagnose them correctly, and know when to act and when to wait. Come with questions and add to your own toolkit!
