Flutewise - An organisation for flute players
Welcome to the Flutewise Website
Flutewise is a great organisation that provides something very special for young flute players. Membership is open to anyone and everyone who plays or is interested in playing the flute although many of our events are restricted to members aged 8 to 18. If you are not a member yet we hope you will join us very soon.

Since 1988, when Liz Goodwin founded Flutewise, our organisation has provided fantastic services to young flute players, their parents and their teachers. Throughout these 25 years Flutewise has been renowned for our vast number of fun events. Ranging from small events lasting a few hours to two day events for over 1,000 young players, Flutewise events have taken place both in the UK and in countries all over the world.
In 2010 the well-respected quarterly Flutewise magazine was succeeded by our unique, interactive website. Our website is designed with the enjoyment, education and safety of young people in mind and is packed full of music and relevant articles for flute players of all standards.
Flutewise is a registered charity run by a small team of volunteers and relies on membership, advertising revenue and donations to operate.
