This workshop by Melissa Keeling explores playing flute with effects pedals (“electric flute”). Melissa will play one of her electric flute pieces, talk about what gear you need to get started playing with effects pedals and how to set up the equipment. She will demonstrate various effects, discuss how to use loop pedals, and walk-through her process of writing and arranging music for electric flute. The session will conclude with a Q&A.
