This was posted on the Galway Flute Chat list:
“Southern California flutists were delighted to be treated to a
Masterclass by Sir James this last November in Malibu. For a variety
of reasons, masterclasses by high-profile flutists are a relative
rarity in the Los Angeles area, especially considering how large the
flute community is in Southern California. Fortunately, the tireless
and amazing Jim Walker has decided to offer an annual week-long
Masterclass right here in Los Angeles!
Jim is pleased to announce his first annual week-long Masterclass & Seminar, taking place at the beautiful new facilities at the Colburn School in Los Angeles June 16-21, 2008.
Guest Artists for Flute Week 2008 include Viviana Cumplido, Principal Flutist with the Phoenix Symphony, and Los Angeles Flutist Heather Clark.
Jim Walker’s “Beyond the Masterclass” Flute Week will follow an intense daily schedule that is both highly performance-oriented and designed to offer instruction on topics that students will face as professional musicians in the real world. Performers will play in masterclass, receive a private lesson, attend all seminars, play in flute ensemble, perform in recital, and attend two special flute concerts given by Jim and Viviana. Several options for auditing the class are also available.
Many more details about the class and registration forms can be found at www.jimwalkerflute.com/beyond.
Brochures to post or to hand out to students can also be downloaded and printed from the website.
Jim is very excited about the class this year and it promises to be a valuable opportunity for everyone who will participate.
