If you have taken your grade 2 flute exam, this course takes you through the new notes and techniques you’ll need to start working towards grade 3.
Even if you’re not doing grade exams but are learning at an equivalent level, this course will help you take your learning up a gear.
This course covers:
- New notes from high D up to high G.
- Scales using these new notes (with backing tracks to play along to).
- The chromatic scale.
- Compound time – 6/8 time signature.
- A range of pieces you can play to put your new notes into action.
- Learning by ear.
About your teacher
Here’s an introduction from Rebecca in her own words:
I grew up in Hampshire and learned flute and piano from an early age. After gaining my BA music degree from the University Of York, I went over to The Netherlands to study Classical Flute at The Royal Conservatory in The Hague. The Hague has a vibrant jazz scene and it was there I took an interest also in jazz music. I joined the Netherlands Flute Orchestra for their tour around Holland with the history of the tango. Upon returning to the UK, I studied for a PGCE in Primary Music at Exeter University and have 18 years teaching experience. I coach the flute section of the Cornwall Youth Wind Orchestra and work with Sax Is Our Business and The Genie Sax Ensemble. I enjoy playing in a variety of settings – orchestral concerts, theatrical shows, function band gigs, big band gigs and with the worship band at my church.
