Sponsored by North Bridge Winds and Anthem Musical InstrumentsThe North Bridge Flute Academy (NBFA) is a new online community that will house a growing program of free educational materials.

NBFA has been established as a one-stop solution for aspiring flute players of all ages. On the website, users will find educational videos, play-along videos, and teaching and practice notes.

Based on repertoire available from the above examining systems, the NBFA is designed to give flute players (and in particular those “stepping up” from beginner instruments) a clear impression of how far they have progressed musically, and what the next steps and long-term future hold for them.
