The Flute Examiner Articles

As a body mapping instructor, I teach my students that they have choices to make in both their preparation and their performances. They know that they are responsible for making musical choices; for example, what tone color do I want to use here? What shape do I want this phrase to take? Musicians are also responsible for their movement choices. Every sound that they make is a result of some type of movement somewhere. Their job becomes a matter of finding the movement choice that supports their musical choice.
