Insights into playing a great second flute

Hello Flutelovers and happy spring!

While I get my new season of house and self together (I spent most of March working on the homefront, but not fluting), please enjoy this very informative interview of insights into playing second. Sarah Newbold of Academy of St. Martins-in-the-Fields talks to Michael Cox, Principal, about what it takes to play great second flute (video)

Topics covered such as: Intonation; Matching sounds; Ego; Leading; Breathing; Sixth sense; Playing piccolo;  Style and flexibility and more. Very informative and helpful. Love these kinds of insider's interviews and wish there were more.

Comments are welcome (button below).

Best, Jen

What an absolutely fascinating interview! There is so much to take in that one time is not enough. I can see that playing 2nd-flute is an art-form in and of itself.

Oh gosh, thanks Kathryn for saying that. I thought exactly the same could listen to this advice twice and wish it were longer. So hard to find such expert advice this easily. Thanks for commenting! :>)
