March 1 - Beginning Flute Pedagogy
AFS Members in the News!
The Austin Flute Society is excited to announce the winner of our first full year private lesson scholarship, Nea Morales! Nea will be attending Johnson High School of Buda in the fall and will fulfill her scholarship lessons with our member, Julie Koidin.
Here is a little bit about Nea:
"My name is Nea Morales and I am going into my fourth year playing flute. I began learning my 6th grade year via zoom during the pandemic. My 7th grade year, I made the Region 18 Concert Band. This past year as an eighth grader I earned 3rd chair in the Region 18 Symphonic Band and Orchestra. Besides playing in my school’s Wind Ensemble, I was also a part of the Austin Youth Orchestra. I am now starting my freshman year of high school and I cannot wait to see where my musical journey takes me!"
