STANDARD: ADVANCED

Philippa Davies is known world-wide as one of the finest solo and chamber flautists currently performing. Playing in the Nash Ensemble and teaching at the Guildhall she returns for this well-established friendly but demanding summer school. Her aim is to enable advanced students - conservatoire entry level is the absolute minimum - to increase their musical freedom, imagination, awareness and expression in solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire. Every aspect of technique will be worked upon; tone, articulation, breathing and particular attention paid to how freely the body moves to improve performance. Philippa is a licensed Andover Educator in Body Mapping. She will also be working on improvisation skills to improve creativity, freedom of expression and increase general harmonic awareness. There will be masterclasses as well as more general sessions and an informal concert given by course members. Course members each receive a ticket to the public concert given by Philippa and Jan Willem on Wednesday 8 August. Don’t forget the 25% discount (excluding room supplements) for under 27s.
