5th “FluteFling” Scottish Flute Weekend [ plus whistles ! ]

Now in its’ 5th year, the 2018 Edinburgh "FluteFling" returns on Sat. 21st April, with a major expansion in that this year we will also be providing tuition for a "Beginner’s" level of flute class, as well as "Intermediate / Improvers" level - plus, for the first time, tuition in whistles, both "soprano" and "low" varieties.
Some minor details have still to be finalised, but information is available here :

If anyone has any further queries, feel free to contact me through this website’s "Private Messages" service, and I will do my best to provide answers.
Hope to see some of you on the 21st,
A’ the best, Kenny

Thanks Kenny!

Latest news is that we have a guest musician / speaker in the hugely talented Claire Mann. We’ll ask Claire to play some of her music on both flute and whistle, and also partake of a "Question and Answer" session on her musical history and approach and ideas about traditional music.

Things are looking good, folks. Only a few places left, so if you want to be part of all of this, please sign up ASAP, we don’t want to be turning people away "on the door".
Look forward to seeing you there. Kenny

Looking great @Kenny! See you on Friday :)

Re: 5th “FluteFling” Scottish Flute Weekend [ plus whistles ! ]

Thanks for opening these workshops up for whistle players. Looking forward to this- see you Saturday!

Re: 5th “FluteFling” Scottish Flute Weekend [ plus whistles ! ]

See you soon, guys. I assume that you’ve received an email from Gordon about the change of venues for the evening sessions. "Jeannie Deans" cancelled our 3-month standing booking at 3 days notice, so we’re not feeling too well disposed towards them at the moment, and will be taking our business elsewhere.
