Flutes at the Barns
Flute Days with Zoe Booth
If you are an adult flute-player and – whatever your ability – you’re looking for a day filled with music, fun and inspiration, then a visit to Trestle’s beautiful Apex room for a Flutes at the Barns Flute Day could be just what you’re looking for.
Flutes at the Barns has provided more than 45 residential courses since it began in 2003, as well as numerous Flute Days since 2014. During each Flute Day, experienced course tutor and flautist Zoe Booth will be joined by a professional accompanist to welcome you for a jam-packed and varied day of four sessions, including group workshops on repertoire, technique and/or ensemble playing, the chance to perform in a masterclass, to build up performing experience and receive personalised tips, and the chance to hear a short, exclusive tutor recital.
In addition, Flute Days are themed, shining a particular focus on relevant topics – recent themes have included Musical Style & Interpretation, French Music & and Influence and a day dedicated to Low Flutes (alto and bass).
Flutes at the Barns has always encouraged a friendly and supportive atmosphere in which flute players of any ability level can improve and make music together. As a participant, you’ll find that there is plenty of playing throughout, with lots of ideas to inspire you further when the day is over.
There is no pressure to perform solo in the masterclass, however those who do choose to take advantage of the performing opportunities will be given every encouragement from the tutors and fellow course-goers. All other ensemble/workshop music will be provided, so please expect sight-reading at your level. If you play piccolo, alto or bass flute, please do bring them, as you will get the chance to play them in the ensemble sessions. Breaks and lunch (all refreshments included) are often sociable events, with much like-minded musical talk.
