Applied Lessons: Flute

Erin Latham, Instructor

Room 357
Phone: 330-926-7451
Email: ela14@zips.uakron.edu

Objectives: To learn about playing the flute (including history, standard repertoire, technique,
vibrato, tone, extended techniques, practice techniques, etc) and participate in a supportive
and professional community of musicians. To become a better performer and learn how to
more effectively work with others.

Requirements: Show up to lessons prepared with all materials, participate in a chamber

ensemble each semester, be professional and supportive with your communication. We will
discuss repertoire (etudes, technique exercises, repertoire, and excerpts) at the beginning of
each semester.

Materials needed: Working flute (plan to schedule regular maintenance on your instrument!),
tuner, metronome, practice notebook, pencils/markers as needed, music you are working on
(the library has a large selection but be prepared to purchase your own copies or find on IMSLP,
especially standard repertoire and technique books.), recording device, binder for lesson notes
and other assignments (repertoire list, practice logs, flute resume, etc)

Attendance: Attendance is required at all flute studio events and lessons, including the flute
festival and all flute recitals each semester. If you are ill or unable to attend an event due to a
previously scheduled event, please contact me ASAP. A list of events will be handed out once
recitals are scheduled.

Juries/recitals: Students are required to play a jury every semester EXCEPT for the semester in
which they give a recital or if they participate in the concerto competition in the fall. Juries will
be held at the end of each semester- we will decide on repertoire around the middle of each
semester. Recitals are required of graduating seniors and graduate students and are strongly
encouraged for juniors and under. (Shared recitals are GREAT opportunities to perform!) Recital
juries will be held three weeks before the recital and will consist of me and two other
woodwind faculty or graduate students (if you are an undergraduate student).

Scale Juries: required for all studio members and will be held around the middle of the
semester- I will post a sign up sheet with available times. See the scale juries handout for
information on the level you should be doing.

Grading: Preparation for lessons and ensembles- 50%

Attendance: 10%
Binder: 10%
Scale Jury: 10%
End of semester Jury: 20%
Other important things: Posters for studio recitals & events, articles, scale jury requirements,
and the schedule of studio events will be posted on the bulletin board outside the flute studio.
Requirements, the schedule of events, and other documents will be posted on Blackboard for
you to access as needed. If you are having issues with someone in the studio or someone in the
music department, please come talk to me and we will try and find a solution.
