Overview

Would you like to improve your flute tone? Would you like to be the master of your flute and be able to express yourself beautifully on it? Would you appreciate helpful techniques to maximise your precious practise time? Would you like some new energy and excitement injecting into your flute playing?
If the answer to one or more of these questions is “YES!”, then why not consider attending our flute course with acclaimed flautist and teacher, Karen Jones, as part of MusicFest Aberystwyth 2021? I guarantee you will come away with new ideas and avenues to approach and improve your flute playing, whatever your standard.

Karen Jones is in great demand as guest principal flute with all the major London orchestras and ensembles including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia and London Sinfonietta. In addition, Karen is principal flute of both the London Chamber Orchestra and the City of London Sinfonia and in 2014 was invited to play with the World Orchestra for Peace. She combines this with regular solo engagements, chamber music projects and commercial studio work including the film scores to Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd and Bridget Jones. Previously having held teaching posts at the Royal Northern College of Music and Trinity College of Music, London, Karen has a busy schedule as one of the UK’s leading flute teachers giving masterclasses across the country, as well as coaching for orchestras such as the National Youth Orchestra and Kent Youth Orchestra. In 2004 Karen became a professor at the Royal Academy of Music.

Financial support

Musicfest Aberystwyth welcomes bursary students from all over the world and prides itself on offering high-quality, intensive training for music students, graduates, and music professionals. We do not wish finance to be a barrier to attending our Summer School so our bursaries (funds towards the cost of fees) are available to help students, graduates and young musicians attend our courses. Friends of MusicFest provide bursaries towards MusicFest Aberystwyth course fees for students in full-time education. The number of bursaries available is limited, so it is essential you apply as soon as possible. Bursaries range from £150 to £200. Students from the UK can receive up to £200; international students can receive up to £150; students resident in Wales can receive up to £250; and we have a limited amount of full bursaries available for students from Ceredigion.
