MountainWest FluteFest Schedule

The MountainWest FluteFest is a three day program focusing on aiding flute students of all ages in furthering their mastery of their instrument. Daily classes are divided into four groups:

  1. Masterclass:  Each day, students will observe a short individual lesson being taught by our daily featured guest master teachers to 3 selected students from the performance track. 
  2. Technique: Accelerate your flute playing with the skills and tools learned in this class. We will focus on learning efficient ways and correct principles to boost your flute technique, which forms the building blocks of everything you play. 
  3. Flute Choir:  This is a large ensemble group class with emphasis on fun!  Students read flute music in parts and will use this time to prepare the repertoire chosen for the outdoor final concert performance, Ensemble Extravaganza!  Students will be sent their specific flute parts to prepare before FluteFest begins. 
  4. Flute Enrichment:  Pulling from Utah’s top flute teachers and artists, students will have exposure to various topics in the flute world that will improve the quality of their flute playing and performance.

Classes are divided by ages, based upon the grade in school the student will be entering in Fall of 2022. See our About page for more information on age groupings and playing requirements.
