The mercury is falling this month, as are the leaves, and for those of you who don’t live in Nashville (like me), you may even be seeing snow!

This month is a time when we tend to come inside, to become more contemplative as we plan for the new year and reflect on the old. We count our blessings and greet our loved ones across a groaning table on Thanksgiving Day, the bounty of food representing the abundance in our lives.

In this month’s issue of the Flute Examiner, we offer you food for thought along with tips for protecting your health and that of your wooden instruments, for teaching your students to think both more deeply and more broadly about the music they’re playing, and for safeguarding the most important relationship of all—the one you have with yourself. Here at the Flute Examiner, we are thankful for each and every one of you who read our content and support our mission.

Thank you fondly, from Amanda, Keith, Ai and Jessica!
