A FLUTE ex­pert from Hast­in­gleigh, as­sisted by five of his stu­dents, gave a demon­stra­tion on how flutes are made and played. Trevor Wye, who runs the Flute Stu­dio, and the post­grad­u­ate stu­dents dis­played their skills at a per­for­mance in Wye. The show also in­cluded mak­ing a flute from a carrot and play­ing it as well as a dis­play of flutes that were hun­dreds of years old, in­clud­ing one made from a hu­man fibu­lar bone. The stu­dents who per­formed were Sa­toko Nishikawa from Ja­pan, Felix Niel from Hol­land, Soon-Mi Jung from South Korea, Mark Xiao from Aus­tralia, and To­momi Mat­suo from Ja­pan. This year’s stu­dents are just five of 133 from across the world who have been taught by Mr Wye over the past 23 years.
