Powell artist Andrea Fisher is known to many as "Fluterscooter." A Juilliard grad, she started her line of Fluterscooter bags in 2011 with "one silver bag and a dream." Now Andrea has been sharing her experiences as an entrepreneur with flutists around the globe -- including students at her alma mater and participants in this week's "Flutes by the Sea" masterclass and workshop in Half Moon Bay, California.
Next month, Andrea will have her own booth at the annual NFA (National Flute Association) Convention, where she will be have plenty of Fluterscooter bags and a few special guests... She tells us that she will be also conducting interviews at her booth for The Flute View, an online magazine for flutists that she created alongside colleagues Barbara Siesel and Viviana Guzman. On the performance side, she'll have the opportunity to construct the installation for a performance of her own original music on Saturday, August 15th at 5 PM.
For those who have not had the opportunity to meet Andrea and hear her speak about her experiences as an entrepreneur, follow this link to read the her previous Teach Flute blog post on entrepreneurship titled FLUTREPRENEURSHIP. Andrea also wrote about her experiences producing the live hologram show, "Flute N Float," in The Making of Flute N Float, which you can also read here by following this link. She is currently working on a live hologram performance in London, but her DVDs from the Tokyo performance are available on her website: fluterscooter.com.
