international masterclasses for flute music

technique – style – performance practice – interpretation – repertoire

For the newly founded Frankfurt Flute Forum three experienced flutists are joining into a team. Each musician covers a different aspect of flute playing but they understand themselves as a pedagogical and artistic team with mutual ideas about music making! With the Frankfurt Flute Forum they want to pass their extensive experience from uncountable years of professional flute playing and teaching to younger generations. The Frankfurt Flute Forum is preparing workshops and masterclasses in the Frankfurt am Main area under particular themes. Invited as participants are flute players: students of conservatories, orchestra members as well as other advanced players of recorder, baroque/classical treverso and modern flute.
