Dear Readers,

This month at the Flute Examiner, our articles seem to revolve around the idea of newness—new music, new techniques, and new ideas. We are thrilled to offer an interview with renowned teacher, performer and contemporary music advocate Molly Barth, and we hope that her ideas on shaping a career will inspire and motivate! We also have an article on getting started with extended techniques from Mary Matthews, and Keith’s 9mm Piccolo column covers repertoire and programming ideas for spring recitals. All of this fresh material is just about perfect as we usher in the freshness of the new season!
