Great Flute Sounds

There are great sounds in my home tonight.

I have one child practicing in his room.  He just turned 10 and is working on the Serenade a Pierrette by Szulc.  I love it.  He’s having troubles remembering the slur in a certain measure, so I get to hear that measure a lot tonight.

I have another working on the Flight of the Bumblebee down in the studio.  He’s 14 and really, really good.  I love how he is repeating his chromatic scale with the metronome.

Ah, music to my ears.

My oldest son, (now 25) won competitions performing the Mozart Concerto in D major when he was only 12 years old.  He then has messed around with post graduate pieces, but is in love with his guitar so much that he only performs flute 3 or 4 times a year now.  It’s okay.  He can play almost anything he wants to anytime he wants to.  We made sure he was of a very high level before he split his musical attention.

I have been teaching my own children since 1997.  It has worked out really well for us here in our home.  I know most (people) can’t seem to teach their own children to as high of a level as I have.  I feel for them.  This is heavenly.

  1. Maria, thank you for your kind words. 🙂 It really is an awesome thing to have so much music in my home and life. Rebecca

  2. Wow! That takes something special. Your children have obviously seen your passion and sensed the joy you feel from playing the flute. It’s admirable that all your children are musicians but not just that, they all chose the flute! I envy their early start. Growing up, learning an instrument wasn’t really encouraged in my family, it was all about sport. But at school I was introduced to the recorder, a typical beginner’s instrument in schools in the UK. But they only give you a taster and it was whole class teaching so you didn’t actually learn that much. But I practised and practised at home until I became quite good. Unfortunately playing the recorder was never seen as a real instrument and my family said it was squeaky and unpleasant so I stopped. Years later I made friends with someone from a musical background. All her siblings and parents played instruments to a very high level. It was her that introduced me to the flute. I’m 40ish! But I love it. I don’t have any children but if I had I would hope that I had your gift Rebecca of inspiring my own children to play. Well done on you. May God continue to bless your efforts. I admire you.
