Flutists are encouraged to enjoy a week of interactive courses and master classes with Yamaha Artists Jeffrey Khaner, principal flute of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Mimi Stillman, artistic director of the Dolce Suono Ensemble. Limited number of students play several times during the week in master classes featuring individualized instruction from Jeffrey Khaner.

Register to participate as an auditor, taking part in all courses and attending master classes.

Courses include:
• warm-up class
• breathing techniques
• flute choir

Learn more about the faculty.

Those accepted as performers play at an advanced level. Performers will take part in four master classes with Jeffrey Khaner and should prepare four pieces to play at that setting. They are encouraged to prepare a study and for use in the open master class. All applicants are required to submit a recorded sample of their playing, about 15 to 20 minutes in length, representing contrasting styles.
Any flutist may participate as an auditor. Auditors observe all master classes and take part in all courses. No audio submission is necessary. There is no limit to the number of auditors. Choose to audit one day, several days, or the entire program. Auditors who join us for the full program will have an opportunity to perform in the final concert as part of the flute choir.
