The Flute Forum with Jeanne Baxtresser and Alberto Almarza.
In this multifaceted weekend class, flutists will receive valuable insight through lectures and master classes to ready them for the challenging process of applying to undergraduate and graduate music programs.
Faculty lectures will cover the many aspects of the audition process, including the application procedure, choosing repertoire, making a CD/DVD, audition presentation, effective practice and learning to enjoy the entire process. Daily master classes will in turn be dedicated to the musical and technical aspects of the audition.
The Carnegie Mellon Flute Forum is also designed to provide valuable resources and insight to flute teachers as they train their students to prepare and practice successfully.
And, as the year of auditioning for music schools is ideally a collaborative family experience, we are inviting and encouraging parents to attend, without a fee.
Students leaving the class will be inspired, energized and ready to enter the audition experience with confidence and enthusiasm!
