If there was a 'Hall of Fame' for music teachers, Keith Underwood would take first prize. Articulation: one of the most difficult topics and areas of study befuddling untold numbers of flutists the world over; and Keith's superpower is that he makes the most complicated things simple. Four sessions covering about a dozen different aspects of articulation, it's effect on tone production, having an excellent tone (or not) and all the other "shenanigans," pitfalls and difficulties one can have if you don't face it head on. Armed with lots of technical solutions - both new and old (some even dating from 1850!) Keith guided us through all of it, and Lessonface is the perfect format for delivering it.
