Is there one correct way to play and teach flute?

Is there one correct way to play and teach flute? 

I don’t think so.
keep that in mind as you explore my teaching videos and use them to try new ideas and techniques. 
hopefully you will be inspired to get into the practice room where the real progress takes place!

Let's talk about REAL FLUTE. What I mean by that is...why has the cult of perfection that has been created through the use of sophisticated digital editing in audio recording made us afraid to document and distribute our performances in a format which is unedited and...REAL? Professional musicians are expected to, and expect themselves, to sound perfect in any recorded media. Digital editing has set the standard far above what is achieved in live performance settings.  Let’s get away from trying to be perfect and get back to trying to be artists.
