Course contents

This course provides the students with technique, tone quality, intonation and performance skills to withstand well competition in the soloist, chamber and orchestral music fields. The course guides the future artist to independence, fulfillment of their own ideas and defense of their thoughts. Considering that each student has differing skills in reacting to new situations, or has other physical talents for mastering individual aspects of playing, individual paths for each are chosen which allows for the quick learning of proper habits and eliminating everything that is not part of flute playing. The course intent is to find the proper road to removing these deficiencies, improving proper techniqe, continuing in the practice of proper breathing, etc. Rhythmic, intonation and metric precision is practiced in etudes - Pivoňka, Milde. Students learn to master individual fingers such they they will be able with any of them to hold any and every tone which seems important or interesting to emphasize. In high-Classic works Flute playing technique becomes more precise but also learned is the structure of a classic concert and the nature of music. The selection of recital pieces are oriented towards the works of Funk, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Stamitz, Mysliveček, Hasse, Haydn, Matys, Feld, Borne, Debussy, Bozza.... An effort to master all attributes of playing the instrument at the most equal levels is necessary.
