    It's all about the F** Word 3.0

    It's all about the F** Word 3.0

    Emmy and Grammy Award wining musicians Jose Valentino on flute and Gualo on guitar join Jean-Paul in his Los Angeles hotel room to talk about the only 'F' word that is important in music...'Fun'.
    They speak about the need for flute players to have more fun and for teachers to include this angle in their teaching methods.  They also talk about performance nerves and perform a couple of flute and guitar tracks live in the bedroom.

    Celebrating music, our little imperfections and supporting positive mental health
    A different 'Talking Flutes Extra' this week where Jean-Paul talks about his brand new and completely free to access website for the stressed, tired or anxious flute player www.thehappyflutist.com.  He speaks about why it's called 'Flutist' and not 'Flautist', how and why he has built the website as a free resource tool for musicians to dip-in and out, and along the way you'll hear some beautiful tracks especially composed for this project by Emmy and Grammy winning musician José Valentino, NY based electric flutist Melissa Keeling and London multi-instrumentalist Theo Travis. 
    Next week Jean-Paul returns with another 'Talking Flutes Extra' podcast from the biggest trade music show in the World - The NAMM Show held each January in Anaheim, California. 
    www.thehappyflutist.com has been made possible by the financial support of the TJ flute company based in London who also fund the production of the 'Talking Flutes' and 'Talking Flutes Extra' podcasts.  For more information visit www.trevorjamesflutes.com

    Your flute practice plan is like a balanced diet!

    Your flute practice plan is like a balanced diet!

    Being a musician and constantly opening up the emotional toolbox for practice and performances is often very taxing on our mental health.  In the first 'Talking Flutes' podcast of 2020, let's make a pact to make this the year when we all take our personal inner health seriously and dedicate as much time to our wellbeing as we do to our music.  
    Other subjects covered by Clare and Jean-Paul this week include creating a balanced practice plan, mitigating some of the effects of social media comments and the open G# flute.
