Why the best players don't always win auditions

 Dear Flutelovers,

Well, I just love the way that Nathan Cole teaches!  Sure it's about violin instead of flute, but since it's also about auditions, orchestras, dynamics, tempo and musical style, it's all applicable to flute, in so many ways.

He's just such a concise and thoughtful teacher and as the First Assoc. Concert Master of the LA Phil he's certainly, as he says, "battle-tested" his own musical advice.

So inspiring too; always learning, always moving the ceiling upward! :>)
