Dear Readers,

This month’s Flute Examiner features articles that cover some of the most basic aspects of musicianship. We are happy to feature Amy Likar, who has recently published a book on breathing, that most elemental of actions. Amanda has written a personal account of the path that led her into public school teaching, while Kelly shares an article about learning new things as an adult. Keith’s “Fearless but Flexible,” about piccolo intonation, is full of helpful tips to manage that most tricky of feats—playing the piccolo in tune! Lastly, we have guest contributor Katherine Lewis, who introduces a new series of articles "Flutists as Administrators."
