About the Flutecorner blog


Flutecorner started as a personal blog on a week long retreat on Pender Island, BC, Canada. It contained my thoughts and discoveries about myself and flute playing that occurred during the Pender Island Flute Retreat 2016, and in many ways it was more beneficial to myself than to those who read it at the time.

Perhaps that is the nature of a blog and it is where flutecorner remained for quite some time. The promise of another year at the Pender Island flute retreat (visit Pender Island Flute Retreat to find out about this amazing course) resurrected the blog. It is one means of sharing "myself", in a way that will hopefully be honest and open, as well as inspiring for others. And it will help me to muse with myself as I develop as a musician and person, keeping me accountable in this journey.

It has recently grown to include articles and thoughts about teaching that may interest students. Over time I hope to add more of these sorts of postings, so that it becomes a more practical resource of further information for students and fellow flutists.

Please engage with the blog. Being a musician (and being a student) can be a lonely ride. This is one opportunity to foster support and generosity towards each other on our individual musical journeys.
