Events, workshops and inspiration for flute players of all ages and abilities

4Flutes Registered Charity 1099734

4Flutes is an independent registered charity set up in 2003 as a continuation for the ideas and previous events of Ruth Ballantyne. Ruth had already held four events in the southwest starting in 1999 for flute players of all abilities.

The ethos behind 4Flutes is to bring to the southwest performers and teachers that would usually only be available in the major British cities/counties. Since 2003 4Flutes has hosted events with leading national and international flute players such as Mike Mower, Jonathan Snowden, Clare Southworth, Ian Clarke, Paul Edmund-Davies, Gareth Mclearnon and Emma Williams to visit us and share their talent and experience with children and adults alike.

These events have highlighted new techniques, reinforced general playing skills and encouraged players to aspire to a new level of playing as well as stimulating curiosity for new music and expanding their repertoire. Furthermore to have FUN!

4Flutes aims to bring opportunities to the southwest that are both affordable and accessible to pupils, parents and in general lovers of live music.
