This six-day masterclass for advanced flute and piccolo players will feature both masterclasses and private lessons on piccolo and flute with some of the world’s most respected flutists and piccoloists, orchestral musicians, and pedagogues. Zart Dombourian-EbyJonathan Keeble, Sandra Saathoff, and Bonita Boyd will focus on standard solo and orchestral repertoire for piccolo and flute. All performers will perform several times in a masterclass setting, receive private lessons, and perform in the closing recital. Other guests will be on hand to offer workshops, including a presentation by Keefe Piccolos, and Alexander Technique for flutists and advice on developing a compelling stage presence. Tim Carey will be our collaborative pianist.

The class will be held at Seattle Pacific University, just minutes from the waterfront and vibrant downtown Seattle.
