Following the great success of Wonderful Winds’ Flute Days! weekend in Devon last summer, we are delighted to be bringing the event to Yateley, Hampshire in September 2018.
Flute Days! presents a unique opportunity for players of all ages and abilities (adults and children) to get together for a day or two of fluting, using the extensive Wonderful Winds catalogue. The emphasis is very much on having fun with the flute and the events are designed to build confidence, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
All details including prices, bursary opportunities, timetables and application forms are also on the Wonderful Winds website here. Discounted Early Bird booking is now open till 8th July, and regular price booking will close on 8th August. Places are limited, so early booking is recommended.
