Young Performers Division

The Young Performers Division (YPD) is an interactive program that builds on essential fundamentals of flute playing and musicianship. This division is geared toward middle and high school students (ages 12-18). Included in the program are short private sessions, classes on tone/intonation development, scales and arpeggios, annotated repertoire, small ensemble assignments, flute choir, master classes and a college audition workshop. 

Under the expert guidance of Brook Ferguson and Kristin Bacchiocchi-Stewart, YPD participants will also have the opportunity to play for Marina Piccinini in a special masterclass, as well as audit all the Marina Piccinini  Master Division Classes. The YPD will participate in daily Control Your Breath classes with Femi Oladeji and Flute Circuit Training sessions with Dr. Bacchiocchi-Stewart.
