Roderick got to the core of the most important parts of flute playing. He introduced us to many valuable techniques for building stronger, fuller sound and demonstrated ways in which we can enhance our playing by using these important elements in our daily practice.
I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching and the gentle guidance and individual approach he provided. I learned a lot in a few days. I am encouraged to become a better player.
I really appreciate his different flute-teaching techniques - how to change what you're doing in/with your body, in order to change the sound & technique. He didn't just ask us to try to achieve a certain sound or technique; he demonstrated WHAT TO CHANGE, in order to achieve the results.
Many useful ideas for improving technique.
These were very interesting and some of them were new to me.
Rod is very well informed, calm and supportive.
Excellent technique and practice tips
