French baroque music is such an integral part of the baroque flute repertoire. If you're finding it hard to understand, here's your chance to get some introductory tips and ideas.
WORKSHOP 1, October 29, 2023: Interpreting French Baroque Music I - a general overview
Let's go through the distinct features of the French baroque style with its specific dances, stylized melodies, and intricate ornamentation. Learn about the unique characteristics of this musical language through various angles such as looking at the architecture and visual arts of the time. Teddie's signature teaching style with visual and musical analogies will enable you to translate these concepts into flute-playing in practical terms.

WORKSHOP 2, November 19, 2023: Interpreting French Baroque Music II - the 'air de cour'
Not often discussed as part of the baroque flute repertoire, this vocal genre was actually the basis of French baroque flute music before composers wrote "real flute music" for the instrument. French flutists such as Philbert and Descoteaux were renowned for their enchanting interpretations of airs de cour in the court of Louis XIV.
Teddie will guide you through the history, characteristics, and performance techniques of this genre, and explain how studying such music will enlighten and deepen one's understanding of French baroque music as a whole.
