Positivity is the only way!
This week on TF Extra I'm talking to L.A based flute player and extremely popular flute social media influencer Gina Luciani about how she started on the flute and also her latest flute and entrepreneurial projects. We also have a 'Joke of the week' from "Graeme in London Town" and some listener responses from last weeks podcast.
This is the last 'Inbetweeny' podcast from me as next week I hand the reigns back to the lovely Clare Southworth for her 'Talking Flutes' Series 2. TF Extra pods return on Monday 11th June, where I'll be in dialogue with William Dowdall (Professor of flute at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin) about all things flutey, the wonderful Russian flute player Ivan Alexhin, I'll have a discussion with flute technical director for TJ flutes David Farley about flute design, and following the demand from last week's podcast, I'll be speaking again to the 'ball of energy' that is José Valentino.
All links to Gina Luciani's social media and music can be found by visiting www.ginaluciani.com
Thank you for putting up with me for the last few weeks and I look forward to speaking to you again soon.
