OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Elizabeth Walker set up Flutes in Tuscany to explore all aspects of flute playing, with inspiring tutors, in the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings of Tereglio. The charming hilltop village exudes calm and tranquillity, but for a week each summer, the villagers are happy to forgo peace and quiet while the streets echo to the sound of flute warm ups, rehearsals, lessons, ensembles and concerts.

The course is deliberately kept small so that flautists, young and not quite so young, can work together throughout the week, following individually crafted timetables that include one-on-one tuition, workshops, master classes, ensembles and practice time. Everyone comes together daily for delicious, home produced meals provided by the villagers, using a wonderful array of locally sourced ingredients.

TUTORS

Elizabeth Walker and Sarah Murphy have worked together for thirty years! They bring their expertise and friendship to the course as they work with the naturally beautiful surroundings to enhance all aspects of flute playing, with a relaxed awareness of technique and musical awareness.
Each year, Elizabeth and Sarah invite a visiting tutor. This year Flutes in Tuscany welcomes Wissam Boustany who will be providing classes and inspiration at the beginning of the course and a concert for us on Saturday.
