Practice Tip from James Galway
On March 22nd Megan Gleason played in a flute ensemble for James Galway during the Music Teacher’s National Convention. He had many good things to say about playing and practicing, but the bit that stuck out to me was that playing a passage correctly once is an accident just as much as playing it wrong once is an accident. Until you’ve played something many, many, many times accurately there’s as much a chance for mistakes as there is for accuracy. That’s what repetition is about, turning an accidental good performance into a reliably good performer.
Now is the time to start thinking about your summer flute plans. I will teach all summer with the exception of a week off to attend the Desert Suzuki Institute July 13-17 with my daughter Helen and a family vacation. I will be collecting everyone’s travel plans during the month of May and we will discuss your summer flute goals. Want better technique, tone or to graduate out of your current book? Summer is the time to do it!
