with Amanda Blaikie
If you are a flute teacher or student, you may enjoy these companion videos to the duets found in the Rubank Advanced Method books!
I developed this project while in quarantine, wanting to further educate my students while they were stuck at home and unable to take lessons in-person.
My hope is that flutists around the world who are at home and unable to play with their teacher can gain some virtual ensemble experience by playing duets with a DSO flutist!
In each video duet, I give a mini-lesson of tips and tricks before the student can then play each flute part along with me, both at a slow and fast tempo.
And I am currently offering a them at 40% off (normally $50) until July 1, 2020 for each volume of duets! Videos will be released in batches beginning the week of April 20, 2020. When you order now, you will be emailed immediately as new duets are released.
Check out the promotional video, Duet #4, from the Rubank Advanced Method Vol. 1 book below.
"Playing with these recordings of the duets is enjoyable, as much as at a real lesson!
It is nice to be able to play along with Ms. Blaikie in this time of uncertainty."

"I really enjoy having the Rubank Duet video series. Hearing Amanda's sound so well recorded, and being able to play along with it, strengthens my own sound. It gives me a strong concept of how to shape my own sound while practicing. Being able to perform as a duet even while at home makes the Rubank book even more valuable."
