Global Flute Convention “The Babel Flute Days“
We’ve hosted “The Babel Flute Days” twice: in May 2022 and September 2023.
The Global Flute Convention – 2023 achieved an unprecedented level of global attendance and attention, spanning a remarkable six days. This expansive online gathering featured a diverse range of offerings, including live and prerecorded sessions, virtual exhibitions, engaging games tailored for flutists, interactive polls, lively social interactions, informative newsletters, a guest book for attendees to sign, and personalized certificates of participation for each guest.
With an impressive lineup of 110 events and a staggering 393 distinguished guests, this Convention stands as an unparalleled milestone in the history of online flute gatherings.
Since the launch of the project on March 20, 2021, we’ve welcomed more than 400,000 visitors from 236 different countries.
Let’s highlight May 2023 as a prime example, with a whopping 180,000 web searches on Google alone. These numbers are substantial and speak volumes.
Considering our magazine’s niche focus on flute enthusiasts, these results are nothing short of astounding. They underline the tremendous enthusiasm and demand for this project within the global flute community.

THE FLUTE OF OZ
Online course for flutists by Onorio Zaralli
38 lessons, practical exersises, tips, video lessons, quizzes, certificate of completion.
This course is the culmination of over four decades of dedicated research. It delves deep into a meticulous study that commences with an exploration of physiology, the fundamental starting point in any discussion about the flute. As we’ll discover throughout this course, the origin of sound isn’t rooted in the flute itself but is largely influenced by our own bodies.
Building upon this foundation of physiology, we progress to delve into instrumental technique, unlocking the “how” and “why” behind various articulations, including staccato, vibrato, legato, and more. To ensure a targeted approach to improvement, each aspect we explore is accompanied by a corresponding exercise.
For each aspect considered, an exercise is proposed: only this way a “specific” work plan can be completed.
Throughout the course, you’ll have the opportunity to view a series of videos, available in both Italian and English, providing direct and effective examples to enhance your understanding and skills.
