California Conservatory Series (2).jpg
Jenni Flute Watercolor Texture.png

The California Conservatory Series was created to create new music each year in the French Conservatory Style.  Each piece will be approximately 7-9 minutes for flute with piano accompaniment and will address technical issues of the flute as well as being a great concert piece for recitals.  The pieces are intended to reach a wider range of students than the Flute Music by French Composer series and will address more contemporary techniques and styles in flute playing.  My goal is to create a new varied collection of music that is fun to listen to, accessible and addresses issues of the modern day flutist.
