Flute Focus 



 Jill Felber is known throughout the country as not only being a phenomenal performer, but an outstanding teacher as well.  Each year she has various artists work with her students in a masterclass setting. Featured artsis in the past have been such as Carol Wincenc, Paula Robison, and Jim Walker.  This year the studio will have the opportunity to work with Marianne Gedigian and Leone Buyse, and Zart Dambourian-Eby.

Zart Dambourian-Eby will be giving a masterclass to UC Santa Barbara students on April 9th from 1-4 pm. Please feel free to come and observe- it's free and will be a great experience!

UCSB offers several degree programs, including a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music, Master's of Music and a Doctoral Degree. For more information about UCSB's Music Department, please visit their website.

Professor Felber's students have had great success in the professional world since their education with Professor Felber.  Tamara Maddford, Kassey LeBow, Amelia Vitarelli and Jill Heinke have gone on to form Areon Flutes and recently debuted at Carnegie Hall. Erica Peel was awarded the Honolulu Symphony 2nd flute position in 2006.  She has since left the symphony and is doing freelance work back on the mainland. More information to come soon on her excellent students.
