Finger Lakes Flute Circle Meeting, the Last in 2014: Thursday 18 December 2014

The Finger Lakes Flute Circle is meeting Thursday, 18 December 2014, 6:30 pm, at the Brookside School (Brighton Parks & Recreation), 1680 S Winton Rd, Rochester, NY 14618. This entrance on Winton Rd is south of Westfall Rd. The official address, 220 Idlewood Rd, takes you through the neighborhood streets to the alternate entrance on the other side of the building.

Note that starting in 2015 we will be meeting in the Conference room (rather than the current Arts & Crafts room) due to room rental rate increases.

We will be playing Native American flute, drums, and hand percussion. Beginners are welcome and encouraged! Beginner flutes will be available to try out. The Native American flute is an easy to play instrument that allows people of all experience levels, even complete beginners, to play beautiful music in no time! 

The Native American flute is perfect for improvisation, and it is also the Christmas season, so I will bring some sheet music with tablature (pictures showing which finger holes to cover) for those who might be interested. Christopher Azzara in his improvisation workshops last month at the Eastman Community Music School, said one of the best way to know your instrument is to learn to hear the music in your head, and then try to play it on the instrument, without using sheet music. For us, there's only one thing we're serious about, and that's having fun with the Native American flute, what ever level of experience you have. One of my favorite tunes is Coventry Carol.

A $5 contribution is requested for room rental and Meetup fees.

We will have a lot of fun and make great music together. We look forward to seeing you!

Current meeting schedules are listed on the Blog and Meetup websites:
