Multiphonics Hunting is an online class dedicated to achieving a very fine control of multiphonics. The goal is to tune the multiphonics, so that they form audible intervals and convey a rich tapestry of harmony and voiceleading.
Class time is spent experimenting with embouchure, aperture shape, tongue position/shape, air pressure and air direction toward the end of stabilizing, tuning, and balancing multiphonics at a very high level. The course includes two group webinar meetings, two private lessons, an exercise book, and a group project.

WHO IS THE CLASS DESIGNED FOR?
The class is designed for deeply-committed flutists with an extra-hardy spirit. This can include amateurs, undergraduate students, graduate students, and professionals. Students should have a willingness to experiment with many aspects of their flute-playing.
CLASS SIZE is kept small, so eligible applicants may be invited to participate in a later session, based on the date of their application.
ALUMNI may be invited to participate as honorary guests in future projects. They also receive a discounted rate for any lessons they take with the teacher after their course has ended.
WHAT STUDENTS GAIN: Students gain a very keen sense of their blowing mechanism, and a flexibility in their approach to the flute that carries beautifully over into traditional playing. Dynamic ranges can be much wider without sacrificing tone or intonation. Students also gain access to a tremendous repertoire of works that were and are being written with multiphonics.
