There are so many reasons why I want to write to you, and I have been intending to do so ever since you were here to give your class.  It was a truly excellent and very helpful class for all of us, and I only hope that you will come back some time in the near future so that more of us—both students and teachers—can take advantage of your knowledge and wonderful teaching!

One thing I wanted to share with you is that my student, Kylie, who played the piccolo piece for you, won the competition for which she was preparing.  We are both over the moon as she had some tough competition.  Thanks a million for lending a powerful hand in this effort!  – Judy Johnson (Kansas City)



The flute studio at WSU is a tight-knit group of dedicated, busy students. Everyone supports each other in his or her journey to excellence, realizing that one person’s path is most likely very different from his or her own. We enjoy the challenge of perfecting our craft!

Orchestra Flutes Picture

Our weekly studio class gives students the opportunity to try out new pieces, play run-throughs before performances, and discuss topics in practicing and teaching. We also prepare small flute ensemble music for performances in the community.

In the 2019-2020 year, WSU will host numerous guest artists, including Dr. John Bailey from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln as part of the Kansas Flute Society Flute Festival in February. Performance opportunities include Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Orchestra, Opera, Musical Theater, Banda Hispanica, Composer Concerts, and the Wichita Flute Ensemble.

Wichita State’s School of Music delivers the limitless opportunities and resources students need to become tomorrow’s musical innovators in an environment that feels like family.

Come join the FluteShox Family!
