Dear readers,

This month’s Flute Examiner is full of good advice to help any flutist become a more efficient, effective, motivated performer and teacher. Keith’s 9mm picc column deals with using summer down time to increase our tonal and technical proficiency on the piccolo, while Brittney Patterson writes about staying motivated when the going gets rough. Kelly Wilson’s column this month covers healthy, efficient practice habits, and Amanda’s Kodaly series takes a look at our practices for teaching meter.

We also have a wonderful article about planning your own Flute Day from Tammy Evans Yonce and Misty Theisen.

I did our featured interview this month, with Roger Martin, recently retired flute professor at Tennessee Technological University. He is an outstanding teacher and performer, and someone who has inspired me and countless other flutists over a long and fruitful career. We’re all hoping that this month’s edition brings you a spark of renewal and lots of interesting ideas!
