Amy Porter’s Anatomy of Sound Flute Workshop


This four-day intensive workshop
presents an opportunity for adults and young adults to participate in master classes, and join in-depth discussions about the study of flute tone, breathing and body awareness, both in flute practice and in performance. Fifteen performers are selected by taped auditions, based upon level of playing for the various sessions.
Every age and performance level (student, amateur, semi-professional, professional) is encouraged to apply. The repertoire- based workshop will focus on all aspects of practicing and performing; the movement workshop will focus on performance efficiency, and reducing stress and tensions while increasing the performers capacity for expression.

AMY PORTER, Associate Professor of Flute, University of Michigan, Former Associate Principal Flute, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, International Award-winning Soloist, Recording Artist

JERALD SCHWIEBERT, Assistant Professor of Theatre (Acting, Directing & Movement), University of Michigan
