Hello Flutists!, 

It's almost Valentine's Day, and we all have one love in common - the flute!  So, perhaps you spend a moment of the day celebrating one of the loves of your life - practicing!  Make music! Share something beautiful in the world!  

We have especially exciting news about our 2018 summer flute camp!  

Remember, you can always send us your flute related events for us to share with the membership, and we'll be happy to include the info in our newsletters.

Happy fluting,

Come join us at Green Oak Ranch in Vista, CA for a 5 day/4 night flute camp! 

We are excited to be hosting camp at a new venue: Green Oak Ranch in Vista, CA. Campers will take part in fun and engaging activities including masterclasses, interactive presentations, and daily warm-ups.
