FLUTE

Flute I: Beginners
Matthew Diaz, Wednesdays, 7 pm – 8 pm
$170 general / $140 member

8 weekly sessions beginning Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

This introductory class is intended for the student who has no experience with either the flute or Irish Traditional music.  We will take the first steps forward together, with the goal of giving you the strong foundation necessary to progress toward better understanding of both the instrument and style of music. We will start with how to produce a good sound, and then tackle the scales and rhythms essential to constructing traditional melodies. By the end of the semester we will have covered one traditional tune in each of the major categories common in Irish Music including a march, waltz, polka, jig, and finally the king of all tune types known as the reel.  A flute pitched in the key of D is required for this class.

Please note this is not at Irish Arts Center | Location: 244 W 54th St. (between 7th and 8th Ave.) New York, NY 10019. Please check-in with the front desk attendant for your room.

Flute II: Advanced Beginners
Matthew Diaz, Wednesdays, 8 pm – 9 pm
$170 general / $140 member

8 weekly sessions beginning Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

This class is for those who have some familiarity with the flute, and with music in general.  Having a good understanding of the production of tone and playing traditional melodies is a base that we will build upon throughout the semester.  We will continue to focus on basic flute techniques: breathing, articulation, and the aspect that most brings this music to life: ornamentation.  Additionally, students will work on strengthening skills of listening and picking up tunes by ear as we will concentrate on how to analyze and repeat examples of playing from recordings that have been slowed down. A flute pitched in the Key of D is required for this class.
