The Interactive Flute Session started Fall 2013 in Saline, MI. Participants were able to spend an afternoon with Sharon Sparrow, Assistant Principal Flutist of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, listening, learning, performing, and laughing. Each time, participants of the flute session walked away rejuvenated having had an immensely enjoyable experience. This first summer interactive session offers the added benefit of a picturesque setting on the shores of Lake Michigan in beautiful South Haven MI.
Nestled on the beach the adventurous can enjoy the sand for miles, regain focus with daily yoga, kayaking, swimming, and even enjoy bike rides around town or on the Kal-haven bike trail. Relax in the evenings with a dip in the jacuzzi and cozy up to a summer campfire.
Equipment will be provided at no additional cost.
*We will have 7 bikes at the residence. For those of you that have your own bike please bring it along
