Adult Flute Retreat
Our adult program is designed to be flexible, whether you are looking to take your playing to a new level or simply treat yourself to a few days of good music amidst the beauty of a Minnesota summer. Either way, you'll return home refreshed and in love with your instrument all over again.
"You surprise yourself ... and you leave your lesson with a real desire to duplicate that success."
--Kay Ellickson, lifelong flutist
A full-group class that all campers attend as their schedule allows. Sessions explore ways to make your scale practice fresh and exciting, how to approach tone practice for the most benefit, and more.
Everyone has the opportunity to be paired in a duet or trio with others at a similar level. Daily coaching will assist in polishing and bringing out the nuances in your piece. Remember to bring your own duets, trios, or quartets to read through for fun!
Revel in the unique sound of a large flute ensemble. Whether you're a veteran or are experiencing flute choir for the first time, there's a place and a part for you. And perhaps a chance to try your hand at alto or contrabass as well!
A time for focused, one-on-one work on your playing with our faculty in a small group setting. Each participant has a chance to play daily, getting personalized tips for improvement for daily practice at camp and once you return home, plus the chance to observe and learn from your peers.
