The Avant Flute Choir of the San Jose Youth Symphony, consists of intermediate-level flutists and sets its goals as teaching young musicians the needed skills for playing in a group. Rehearsals are focused on improving techniques through various scale warm-ups, work on tuning and intonation issues, introducing the concepts of ensemble playing, as well as working on a wide range of repertoire. The friendly and inviting atmosphere of the choir encourages students to learn in collaborative and inspiring ways. Section leaders are chosen based on their participation, attendance and overall involvement as team work is very important.
