May 21, 2023: Practicing Baroque Flute - a musical approach to etudes and exercises
In this lecture-workshop, baroque flutist Teddie Hwang will show some of her favorite exercises and studies on the baroque flute. Most importantly, she will demonstrate how to practice with a musical approach and do away the common conception of studies as being monotonous and repetitive. Quite the contrary, they provide a great place to exercise creativity and foster an understanding of the musical language, in addition to developing technical proficiency.
Teddie will draw from both modern and historical resources such as Quantz, Hotteterre, Reichert, and others.
Although the focus will be on the baroque flute, players of other instruments are more than welcome to attend!
June 25, 2023: Music and Imagery - playing with a 3-dimensional sound
Music-making is often compared to storytelling, which combines text or spoken words with imagery to create an emotional impact on the listener. With her experience in fine-art photography, Teddie Hwang will demonstrate how such an extra-musical input can give insight into music and its interpretation. Furthermore, she will explain her concepts about tone production which lead to a lively flute sound that has depth, richness, and flexibility in expression.
Using her own works ranging from portraiture to landscape astrophotography, she will use these visual mediums to encourage and inspire players to be compelling storytellers with their expressive sound. Music-making thus becomes an enriching and fulfilling experience, both for the performer as well as for the listener. Let Teddie show you how to take your playing to the next level.
As always, the focus will be on the baroque flute, but players of all instruments are more than welcome to attend.

There will be plenty of opportunities to do some hands-on playing so make sure to have your flute ready.
