The 4th “FluteFling” Scottish Flute Weekend

Now in it’s 4th year, "The FluteFling Scottish Flute Weekend" returns, albeit at a different time of the year, and with a change of venue to a more central location.

The weekend starts on Friday night, with the 2nd "Great Scottish Flute Night" - a charity concert with profits being donated to "Scottish Action On Mental Health". I will post details of this concert as a separate event.
A flute session has been arranged to follow the concert in a nearby hostelry.

Saturday classes : Registration - 9.00 - 9.30am.

Students will be allocated places in 1 of 3 classes, and will rotate between the 3 tutors - Sharon Creasey [ boehm-system ], Gordon Turnbull [ simple-system ], and special guest tutor, Orlaith McAuliffe [ simple-system ].
The teaching part of the day will end with a presentation by a special guest speaker [ not yet announced ], ending at 4.30pm.
The practical and fun part continues with an evening session, from 7.30pm to midnight.

Prices and numbers - numbers are limited to a total of 40 students.
Advance booking : Full - £50 / Concession - £40
"On The door" : Full - £55 / Concession - £45
Students will get a 50% discount on admission to the Friday night concert - this can be obtained through a code presented when booking online.
I will post the link for bookings in the next few days, once it has "gone live".

Sunday - ends with a very informal session in a well-known Edinburgh music pub.

If anyone requires any other information, please contact me through a private message, and I will do my best to answer any queries.

PS - I should have noted above that the "FluteFling" gratefully acknowledges financial support from the "Tasgadh Traditional Arts Small Grant" scheme, administered by "Feisean Nan Gaidheal".
