Flutronix has several customizable workshops available for music students K-12

(see options below)


Beyond the Orchestra

an exploration of classical instruments in contemporary music

Using guided discussion and listening examples, this workshop presents a comprehensive overview of artists who have put classical instruments to use in non-traditional ways, including improvisation, sampling, specialized extended techniques, integration of electronics and more. Following the workshop, Flutronix will present a short performance to provide a live example of a uniquely stylized application of classical performance. For continued study and expansion following this introductory course, each student will be provided with a web link to an online playlist featuring the music examples presented and discussed. The content of this class is particularly engaging because it exposes students to a wide range of music featuring traditional instruments, inspiring them to think outside of the box as young artists.
