Course contents

The flute is an instrument in many music ensembles. This course provides the student with all skills needed for playing. The aim is to prepare the student as a independent solist, chamber or orchestra musician.The education field is not overlooked. The graduate will be prepared for the education track in middle schools and conservatories. The student must complete an admissions exam to enter the course in musical talent, stage performance and talent, stage performance skills and adequate technique maturity. The primary element of instruction is the recognition of poor habits or resolution of issues the student has brought with them. This may involve tone creation, improper breathing and ignorance of proper technique principles. The technical aspect of playing is instructed through easier etudes - Enresto Koehler, N. Platonov, Emil Prill, where it is possible to precisely demonstrate where correction is necessary and how to do it most effectively. This is primarily practice in holding the first note of a group of fast tones, for example, the first and third of four sixteenth notes or the first of a triplet, etc. Individaul exercises for tone quality, proper embouchure and breathing are also part of instruction and are performed such that each exercise corresponds to the individual skills of the student. Musicality and performance principles of Baroque and Classic literature are instructed with compositions by Bendel, Haendel, Ibert, Eben
