I believe that the flute is the sound of the heaven. I like to focus on couple things which I think it will help my students to reach that beautiful sound such as; air control, relaxed posture and position. No matter which instrument you are playing, first you need to find a way to make yourself comfortable on your instrument with good body posture.
The air control is the key of the pure and clear sound of flute to me, and that is the reason, which makes me to focus on embouchure and most importantly the air control with the people who I am working with.
Besides the technical parts of flute, I have been really thankful to be a teacher because, since we all have some kind of problems in our life’s all over the world, I believe the music has a healing power and that could help us to become a healing presence.
