Summer 2018 -season cancelled

Attention:

Due to circumstances beyond our control it was necessary to cancel The Informed Flutist for summer 2018.  Many thanks to all of you who registered.

Please stay tuned for offerings next summer —

Best wishes!

Aralee, Leela, Keith, Sergio & Hristina

NEW THIS YEAR: Classes begin Friday morning at 9:00 and evenings are left FREE to give participants time to practice, unwind,  or explore Houston’s many restaurant and concert offerings.
To best understand our unique format please read  through this sample schedule.
Ours is a very small class, yet we make it even smaller by dividing into groups of 7 or fewer, with 3 classes going on simultaneously.
The aim is to give each participant time to interact with each faculty member. The faculty also enjoy getting to work with each person in the class.
These hour long sessions are called Small Group Workshops on the schedule below. This year these sessions will be taught by Aralee Dorough, Sergio Pallottelli and Keith Underwood. (Leela Breithaupt will teach several extra repertoire based classes for the entire class.)
