The ISA Flute committee is responsible for the new Suzuki Flute editions and recordings. This committee consists of regional representatives for Suzuki flute from ESA, SAA, TERI and PPSA.
The committee members meet once a year in person and have frequent Skype meetings and a lively E mail exchange. Every year they provide a statement describing their plans and their work.
These statements can be downloaded from the ISA website.
All feedback and suggestions are welcome ! You can contact your regional representative or leave your message at the E forum.
After several years of fine tuning the new Suzuki Flute book 1 was released January 2018.
Lorna McGhee and Vahan Vargsyan were the the recording artists.
