Paul Edmund-Davies on Technique

Paul Edmund-Davies
Powell Artist Paul Edmund-Davies was Principal Flutist of the London Symphony Orchestra for twenty-five years.  He is currently Principal Flute with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the English National Opera.

In his fifth video lesson on the Powell website, Mr. Edmund-Davies discusses finger control.  He demonstrates exercises for improving your technique by keeping your fingers light as opposed to gripping, memorizing music, and practicing what he terms as "brain-to-finger coordination."  Definitely seems to work, considering Mr. Edmund-Davies' illustrious career and excellent examples in this video!  You can watch the the lesson on finger control here.
