Flutewise News March 2018
It’s spring, thank goodness. For the first time ever in our 30 year history, an event had to be rescheduled because of snow. We were due to go to the Schools at Somerhill in Tonbridge on 4 March, but the school decided to close the venue due to the weather. The good news is that we were able to rescheduled this event for Sunday 18 March - next Sunday, so if you haven’t already booked, there is still time. The morning event is for adult players and the afternoon for people aged 8 to 18. You can read more about it here
Not long after that we have our Spring Residential course at Woldingham, Caterham, Surrey. It is from 3 - 6 April and there are a few places left. As part of it, we are also offering a one day course on Wednesday 4 April from 10.00 am until 8.00 pm. As part of this we will be celebrating 30 years of Flutewise (so there might be cake!) As well as the great Flutewise residential staff team, we will also be having special guests Gareth McLearnon and Philippe Barnes. It will be a fantastic day in the wonderful venue. Book soon though as places are limited. Day course Residential course
If you follow our news, you will know we had an extremely successful event in Jerry during February. I’m delighted to say we have been invited back for a 3 day course in October/November, during the half term holiday. There is the opportunity to stay at Chateau Vermont where the course is held. Jersey is an excellent place for a family holiday and I’m sure it will appeal to families with young flute players. We might also be able to arrange for young players who want to come on their own or with a friend to travel from Gatwick with Flutewise staff or with families going. If you are interested, you can complete a form on our website.
For many, many years I’ve been running a summer school in Kastela, Croatia. I’ve always been thrilled at the number of British families who have come to join in the course and enjoy a holiday and this year is promising to be no exception. The course is during the 2nd two weeks of August this year. Let me know if you want to come. It’s a great experience to work and play with Croatian flute playing friends.
