Beating the Bugs!

“An interactive session for all flutists, Beating the Bugs! is designed to help attendees feel engaged and reconnect with the flute community. Beginners, flute instructors, band directors, college students, or passionate enthusiasts – ALL attendees will feel included, and involved, in a combination of instruction, exercises, duets, and play-alongs. 2020 did its best to push us down and beat us up – now it’s time to fight back with Beating the Bugs!”
