International Flute Course

15th – 21st July 2012

La Ferme du Soleil, Chinaillon, Le Grand Bornand, Haute-Savoie, France

Welcome

Join us for another inspirational week of flute playing…

Following last year’s success and set in France’s magical Haute-Savoie, our two expert tutors, Louise Burnet and Andrea Kuypers, will be leading a week of workshops, masterclasses, ensembles and concerts.

We welcome flautists from age 13 through to adult. Applicants should be minimum Grade 3 standard through to Diploma.

The course will encourage and inspire developing flautists in a relaxed environment where the emphasis is based on success through enjoyment.

It won’t all be work… there will be plenty of time to relax by the pool and enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery.
