Flutes at the Barns with Zoë Booth - Home



Residential Flute Courses for adults are held in the beautiful Staffordshire and Derbyshire Peak District of England. Arrive with your flute on a Monday for a week of musical participation with the first-class FATB tutors, including an individual lesson, private rehearsal with professional accompanist, workshops and sessions playing music in small and large groups, masterclasses and concerts, before departure on Friday. Top-class accommodation on-site - in one of the amazing secluded venues - provides an indiviudal room and bathroom for each musician (partners welcome), with our own private chef taking care of all the practicalities whilst you immerse yourself in the music-making. Click on individual courses for more information.



Whether you’re keeping in touch between residential courses, or perhaps only have time for the mini-Flutes at the Barns experience, an FATB Flute Day is jam-packed with music, fun and inspiration, led by Zoë Booth and the other brilliant FATB tutors. Activities include rehearsals, workshops and warm-ups and the themed Flute Days (on variety of topics) also include the opportunity to take part in an accompanied masterclass; alternatively the "Play Days" are all about ensemble playing, forming a flute choir from scratch for the day to cover a wide choice of music. Our beautiful Arts Centre venue provides a fitting backdrop for the wonderful range of fully inclusive music-making. Click on individual Flute Days for more information.



Flutes at the Barns Overseas Courses provide particularly special opportunities to make music  - with all the wonderful flute-playing musical activities you would expect from FATB - whilst exploring exciting non-mainland-UK destinations through a programme of sight-seeing activities fitted around the musical sessions. Varying by destination, courses are 7-10 days in length; individual accommodation for each musician is of the highest standard. Flutes at the Barns has so far taken eight tours of happy flute-players - and some partners, who are welcome too - to Tiree in The Inner Hebrides, Cork in Ireland and Sri Lanka; a tour to Croatia is planned for June 2018.
