Beyond the new weekly posts on this blog, the old article that has been getting the most attention this month is from January 2015, “Teaching your Students to Play with Vibrato“. Since there isn’t time to write a full article this week, please enjoy this oldie, but goodie. I’ll be back next week with a fresh tip for you.

Came upon your blog for the first time today. I’ve been teaching flute 45 years in Pensacola Florida. I was happy to see so many things that I’ve been teaching by trial and error over the years just as your blogs have demonstrated. The way I started teaching vibrato was to have students practice blowing on a candle but never extringuing the flame, just teasing it with air stream. So happy to be able to be in touch with your wealth of experience. Martha Trammell
