Online Workshops

Flutes at the Barns offers a varied online timetable of events to enable you to participate alongside other players, maintain your personal musical focus and progression and enjoy your music-making! It's easy and simple to do from your laptop, tablet, phone or device. All classes are led by FATB tutor, Zoë Booth and class numbers are limited to allowing each player to feel able to contribute, as well as to connect with other class-goers.

  • Advice getting set-up to connect online will be given; the video-calling app on which the classes run is free and - once you're ready - taking part is as simple as answering a phone call
  • Classes are exclusive, for no more than five participants at a time (masterclass and play-alongs for a maximum of just four)
  • During the class you will be able to see the tutor as well as the other class-goers
  • At the end of each online class, there will be a chance to ask further questions of the tutor and talk with others

There are a range of online opportunities for you and your flute, whether you'd prefer to be inspired, join a focussed practice session, play-along or perform. Drop in for an occasional class or several times a week, it's up to you; FATB Online is flexible and convenient, all enjoyed from the comfort of your own home:

  • Be Inspired: workshop classes will be offered on a different topic(s) each week and will take 45 minutes; simply sit back and listen, or make a note of anything you want to try in your own playing. Before or after each workshop, free resources will be sent to you by email. As well as the one-off topic workshops, linked classes on repertoire (45 minutes x 2, 3 or 4 a week apart) will provide in-depth guidance to some of the world's best flute music.
  • Focussed Practice: Proficient Practice workshops take 45 minutes; as well as benefitting from the session (led and accompanied by FATB Tutor Zoë Booth), the activities can then be repeated - or used as inspiration - for further, positive development in your individual practice.
  • Play-along: these workshops (55 minutes) allow you to rehearse beautiful music and play along in a live duet with FATB tutor Zoë Booth.
  • Perform: masterclasses (60 mins each) allow you to perform (unaccompanied) and receive personalised flute tuition; you will also get to watch the other players, picking up further tips and repertoire ideas.

Fantasia in E minor by Telemann (1 of 2) * NOW FULLY BOOKED *
(When booking, please note you are booking for both parts 1 and 2 at 2.00 pm am on Wednesdays 10th and 17th March, one week apart)

Telemann published his 12 amazing, unaccompanied Fantasias – each in a different key - in the early 1730s, and they’ve been core repertoire for flute players ever since. Whether any of these is something you already play, you are embarking upon learning one for the first time, or if you just wish to appreciate their depths, join FATB Tutor Zoë Booth for a guide through the context, themes, harmonies and details. With such a wealth of material, there won’t be time to learn each one; instead, focus will be on completing the details of Fantasia no. 8 in E minor, whilst referring to some of the other Fantasias to offer related guidance along the way. Expect demonstrations, performance tips, influences, explanations and on-screen scores to support and illustrate. These two linked workshops are for a maximum of five participants, with time to ask any questions relating to the theme. (45 mins)
