This 10 day festival of classes, warm ups, concerts and workshops offers flutists of all abilities the chance to participate in a wonderfully supportive environment with the Master and other world renowned artists.

Our Galway Masterclasses are held alongside concert performances on different tours. A part of the Galway Flute Academy, this exclusive event provides an opportunity for flutists to learn from Sir James and Lady Galway as they share their expertise with students of all levels. The focus is on learning the standard flute repertoire and improving technique and tone production.
