This workshop introduces physical movements that are tied to tailored, exploratory flute warm-ups with the goal of creating an understanding of how the parts of the body work together to create sound and resonance. The warm-ups and movements introduced will help participants explore the physicality of playing and create mobility, ease of playing, and resonance.
