Flute Camp 2017
Our annual Flute Camps are led by Wendy Wagler.
Flute Camp offers flute students the opportunity for individual lessons, ensemble experience and professional coaching in a week-long intensive setting, to improve their performance skills and to help players get back in shape for school in September. These performance-based workshops will be of interest to students of all playing levels.
Each week concludes with a short recital to showcase some of the skills participants have learned during the week and to provide valuable experience in a performance setting.
