Online Workshops

Flutes at the Barns offers a varied online timetable of events to enable you to participate alongside other players, maintain your personal musical focus and progression and enjoy your music-making! It's easy and simple to do from your laptop, tablet, phone or device. All classes are led by FATB tutor, Zoë Booth and class numbers are limited to allowing each player to feel able to contribute, as well as to connect with other class-goers.

  • Advice getting set-up to connect online will be given; the video-calling app on which the classes run is free and - once you're ready - taking part is as simple as answering a phone call
  • Classes are exclusive, for no more than five participants at a time (masterclass and play-along workshops for a maximum of just four)
  • During the class you will be able to see the tutor as well as the other class-goers
  • At the end of each online class, there will be a chance to ask further questions of the tutor and talk with others

There are a range of online opportunities for you and your flute, whether you'd prefer to be inspired, perform, or play-along:

  • Be Inspired: workshop classes will be offered on a different topic(s) each week and will take 45 minutes; simply sit back and listen, or make a note of anything you want to try in your own playing. Before or after each workshop, free resources will be sent to you by email. As well as the one-off topic workshops, linked classes on repertoire (45 minutes x 2, 3 or 4 a week apart) will provide in-depth guidance to some of the world's best flute music.
  • Perform: masterclasses (60 mins each) allow you to perform (unaccompanied) and receive personalised flute tuition; you will also get to watch the other players, picking up further tips and repertoire ideas.
  • Play-along: these workshops (55 minutes) allow you to rehearse beautiful music and play along in a live duet with FATB tutor Zoë Booth.

Know the Score
In asking for feedback after the FATB Online workshops there is a chance to give further ideas for workshops, and asking for tips on sight-reading has come up a few times now, so that’s one of the main aims of this class! Sight-reading is one audible result but engaging with the score is important whether we’re playing new music or a piece that’s very familiar. With on-screen music, explanations and demonstrations I’ll be delving into the details of working with your music, including ideas on how to strengthen your musical imagination and the benefits of silent practice. This workshop is for a maximum of four participants, with time to ask any questions relating to the theme. Free resources will be sent to participants after the class. (45 mins)

Playing in Colour * NOW FULLY BOOKED *
In developing expression, using changes in our sound to bring the music to life in colour is a wonderful skill to explore and employ.

“This class was delightful. I liked that you offered practical guidance on how to touch the magic of expression in music. Lots to think about.” “Very interesting! Ideas about colour/timbre are difficult to describe; Zoe demonstrated changes and helpfully explained how to work towards achieving these differences. It was interesting to consider the appropriate tone colour for pieces of music from different times and genres and ways in which the smooth transition between these colours may be achieved. A thought-provoking class.”
