"Pharyngeal Flute Playing"
Sunday, February 7, 2021 (2:00 - 3:30 PM CST)
Join us via Zoom as we continue our virtual series, Fluting with the Stars! with the legendary flute "guru", Keith Underwood. Known for his unceasing exploration of the flute, breathing techniques, body awareness and in particular, a deep understanding of the back of the throat, Mr. Underwood has become a destination of learning for so many flutists. His ability to observe, listen, and diagnose why things work and don't work in other's playing is extraordinary. His diverse interest and expertise in everything from Baroque to Jazz further expands the perspective and knowledge Keith has to offer. We are so fortunate to be able to have this opportunity to bring him to our CFC community. Learn more about Keith Underwood's fascinating career as a performer and teacher below as well as in our Pipeline interview.
