A flute retreat with fabulous food and music. Atarah’s Advanced Flute Course No.9 is a French wallow in food and music for Diploma and Post Diploma adults at Atarah’s house in the Dordogne.
For over 20 years Atarah has been running flute courses for adults, both at Bloxham Conspiracy (The Bloxham Conspiracies) and in her own house in France with great success. She is always creative and original in her choice of repertoire for flute ensembles and orchestra, and has one of the world’s largest collection of flute orchestra material.
This year in addition to wonderful classical ensemble music there is a pianist and singer to add interest.
Teachers very welcome as teaching problems are usually one of the main topics of conversation.
Atarah’s husband (author) Douglas Boyd is there for French history culture trips!
Date: May 4th-8th 2011
Accommodation: Heated pool, lovely country walks, simple accommodation.
This course is food for body mind and soul!

Atarah workshops January
Dear Atarah, thank you for a brilliant course. Everything was perfect - your teaching was as valuable and original as ever, the music was amazing, and I loved playing the alto flute, which I never dared to before, I always thought I’d hold the group up. The food was out of this world; and you gave 150% of yourself, as you always do. I loved meeting your pupils, young and old. And we were very grateful to your neighbour for driving us to Bergerac. What a thoroughly nice woman. She said you had done so much for them, she was pleased to be able to do that for you. Please thank Douglas too, for picking us up from the airport and for making that delicious chicken soup and the salads and such good conversation.
Atarah's Advanced Flute Course
Marianne and I got back to London with only a slight hitch: I left my flute in the Ladies at the airport, the other side of customs. I realised as we were walking to the station and rushed back. A kind man escorted me to the loos, where there were three security officers looking suspiciously at it. They thought it was some kind of an explosive device. I just got there in time.
Hope you’re having a well-deserved rest. I am very much enjoying the Zoe Heller and think you will probably like it too (I bought three copies, one for me, one for you, one for my daughter-in-law).
