Take a leading flute player, author, golfer and Professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London (Clare Southworth) and mix with flute player, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Public Speaker and Managing Director of the world famous TJ flute brand (Jean-Paul Wright). Then speak with some of the world‘s leading flute players including Sir James Galway, Jasmine Choi, Denis Bouriakov, Paul Edmund-Davies, Gareth Davies (too many more beautiful flute playing guests to mention in a single paragraph), and gently mix these together with some Grammy and Emmy winning musicians. Top with mental health awareness advice from Dr Joe Stammeijer and finish with some stunning music, laughs and plenty of fun.


176. Every performance is like building a sandcastle - Melissa Keeling

When you break open your old mindset, you'll find anything is possible.

Part 2 of the 5 week 'Summer' looking back though our podcast archives. 

This week we are back to a podcast #106 recorded in March 2020 where Jean-Paul talks to NY based electric flutist and author Melissa Keeling about the unique 'Glissando' flute headjoint and the new tutor book on it that she has just written.  How it can open up so many more performance possibilities especially when paired with looping and effect pedals. We also listen during the podcast to some of Melissa's chosen works on the Glissando headjoint as well as with looping and effect pedals.
