'Making Life Sound Beautiful'
As a musician, you can't and shouldn't be fixed in you thinking. Performing, teaching, studying, composing, conducting requires you to unlock the creativity that lies within, and you therefore have to unleash yourself from just the notes on the page! In this week's 'Talking Flutes Extra' podcast, Jean-Paul is talking via Skype with Russian born flute player, composer, arranger and conductor Ivan Alekhin about his life in Russia and his studies in England at the Royal Academy of Music in London and also at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Now living in Washington D.C, Ivan speaks about the need to not only practice and study the flute, but also how you should read more literature to gain a deeper insight into life in general.
From baroque to uptown funk! - four days at the NFA'18 in Orlando, the World's biggest flute convention
A longer than usual podcast giving a brief overview through my own eyes (Jean-Paul Wright) of four days spent at the worlds largest flute convention, the National Flute Association of America, this year held in Orlando. A huge shout out to every flute player I met, tested flutes with and more importantly, laughed with. The thing about the NFA is that you get the world's best flute players performing and mixing with everybody and the 'vibe' is very laidback and super friendly. Everybody has time for you. So the bottom line is put it on your 'Bucket List' of things to do. 2019 Convention is in Salt Lake City and 2020 in Dallas.
