“Flute for Adults” Workshop

Have you been itching to learn the flute but can’t afford the price of private lessons? Here’s an opportunity to rock it out on the flute this summer at a more affordable rate. I’m teaching a 5 week summer workshop called, “Beginner Flute for Adults” starting on June 22nd. Learn the basics of the flute in a fun and inspiring group environment with a beautiful view of the harbour. We’ll explore various mindfulness and stretching techniques and if there’s interest, I’ll even help you learn how to improvise with others and loop your flute! Our main goal during this workshop is to have fun! This workshop is designed for adult beginners and is limited to 4 students. Private message me to reserve your spot! rozalindmacphail@gmail.com or call 579-0695.

I GAZE BACK – WORK IN PROGRESS

Inspired by my artistic residency through the Cucalorus Film Festival last year, a new live music/silent film project is being created and it features a new location that I’ve fallen in love with, Wilmington, North Carolina. I GAZE BACK involves a number of filmmakers I met while I was an artistic resident including: Shona Thomson, Mandi Edwards, Mariah Kramer, Matt Malloy, Matt Gossett and Josh Caine. There are 2 films of my own in the mix that were shot in Super 8 black and white and I hand-processed with film professor, Andre Silva at UNCW. I’m currently composing all the music for the films and should have the soundtracks completed by the end of August. Our goal is to submit the project to Cucalorus in order to perform the world premiere it at this year’s festival. Keep your fingers crossed for us! : )
