More student spotlights on the KinderFlute-Academy website:
Alyssia was accepted into the music education department at Messiah College
and will begin her freshmen year in the fall of 2018!
This is one happy flutist! Michele had only 2 days to prepare her music for an online audition, and she quickly and furiously learned about 12 excerpts and pieces on piccolo and flute to send in. About a week later, the marine band informed her that they wanted to audition her in person about. After this audition, Michele then was accepted into their program.
Upon graduation from high school, Michele will attend their boot camp, then a music school for a few months, and then she will tour with the marine band for 3 years, playing 400 concerts a year. After that, she can decide to go to college or perhaps remain in the band as a life-long musician.
A very big congratulations to Michele, and we wish her the best of luck!
Michele recently successfully auditioned and made it into Oberlin Conservatory's Summer Flute Academy! She is one of 18 students from across the country who is selected to be a part of this wonderful learning experience. Not only that, but she has her hands full this year, as senior drum major for her marching band!
Congratulations to the six students who won top spots in
PMEA district band and orchestra, 2017!
The piece this year was Mozart's Concerto in G major, 2nd and 3rd movements. The students also were judged on scales. Mallory moved up to first chair, so we were so excited to hear her beautiful flute solos during the concert!

Hailey has been a top-notch, hard-working flutist and was just nominated for Honors Band in her county. She is also a leader in the middle school flute ensemble, and just played her first gig (a musical at a local church). She is in the 7th grade. Congrats, Hailey, and keep up the good work!

A big congratulations to both Michele and Jacey, high school juniors, for auditioning and winning spots in the Harrisburg Youth Symphony.
They had to prepare and audition on a Beethoven orchestral excerpt and scales.
In addition, Michele performed the "Scherzo" from the Suite by Widor, and Jacey performed the "Fantasie" by Faure.
It is very difficult to win a spot in this symphony, and we are very proud of their accomplishments.
