As the school year is winding down for many band directors and students around the U.S., I would like to thank everyone who has checked out the weekly posts and found them useful in their work with their flute students. I’m taking a break from blogging for the summer but I’ll be back in August with more great ideas on flute pedagogy for band directors.

It’s been really interesting to see which entries got the most readership throughout the year. The top post since starting was Quick Fixes for Common Mechanical Problems, followed by Teaching Your Students How to Practice, Teaching Bb Fingerings, Teaching your Students to Play with Vibrato and The Legend of “Kiss and Roll”.

As of today, there have been nearly 8500 views coming from countries all over the world, with the U.S. having the most views, followed by Canada, the UK and Australia. Thank you, everyone! If you have questions, suggestions or comments, please let me know. Even though I won’t be posting over the summer, I am working and thinking about what to blog about flute pedagogy for the next school year. I want to hear from YOU!

If you find these entries helpful, subscribe, share with your colleagues and visit regularly for more flute tips. Find me on Facebook or email me at dr_cate@sbcglobal.net. Over the summer I will be working on putting my clinic and touring schedule together for next year. If you are interested in having me visit your school and work with your flute students, please contact me. For more information about clinics and workshops click here.
