"I completely agree, Samantha. Vibrato can be used to intensify even the softest of passages, helping to draw in the listener's ear. What is a piece of music you have played where your decision to add vibrato helped to make a phrase much more…"

"Excellent points, Isabella. Vibrato definitely helps to add an additional layer of interest to the sound, creating a more vocal quality. When you sing do you think about vibrato the same way as when you play the flute?"

Isabella Holland replied to Kyle Yecke's discussion Flute Studio Class in the group Orchestra
"Vibrato can make any piece sound more alive and interesting. If you don't have any vibrato, the piece will sound completely boring and lifeless. Vibrato can also make a huge difference in the emotion of the piece and what you want your audience…"

Flute Studio Class

Check out this video of Berlin Philharmonic flute player Andreas Blau coaching Amanda Sparfeld on orchestral excerpts from Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3.How does an orchestral musician gauge the appropriate amount of vibrato to be used in a musically delicate passage, such as the opening of Leonore Overture No. 3? Andreas Blau discusses intensifying the piano espressivo with more vibrato to add life to the phrase. How do you think vibrato can change the color and character in a piece of…See More

Profile Information

I am a:
Performing Artist, Administrator
My school is:
Manhattan School of Music; Northwestern University
My other school or arts organization is:
Carnegie Hall
My style(s) of music:
Classical, Electronic, Experimental, World
I am interested in:
Composing / Arranging, DJing, Making Music Videos, Multimedia Projects, Music History, Music Theory, Performing, Recording / Producing / Engineering
My musical instrument(s):
Clarinet
My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
A few of my favorite classical instrumentalists are the clarinetist Martin Frost, cellist Jacqueline Du Pre, and pianist Mitsuko Uchida. I am also a huge fan of crossover artists such as mandolinist Chris Thile and bassist Edgar Meyer. My three favorite composers would have to be J.S. Bach, Osvaldo Golijov, and Leos Janacek. It's quite diverse bunch, but all of their music really speaks to me!
More about me:
I am originally from Flint, Michigan where I began my musical training on viola at my local performing arts school. I found my calling and switched to the clarinet quickly thereafter. My grandfather was an amateur jazz clarinetist during the swing era, so I always had a fascination with the instrument.

I went to the Interlochen Arts Academy in northern Michigan for high school and then continued on to do my bachelor's degree in clarinet performance at Northwestern University and my master's degree in orchestral performance at the Manhattan School of Music. I am currently the administrative assistant for education programs at Carnegie Hall.

In my spare time I am currently assembling a new music ensemble that pairs acoustic classical instrumentalists with DJs. It should be an exciting project!
