Vera Shanov — Brief Facilitator Bio

In a room full of flute players, Vera provides counterpoint — percussion and rhythm to accompany melodic flute, performance art such as poetry, or the use of visulization and emotion in creating deep music. She makes everyone in the workshop feel comfortable with themselves and their music. Coming from a marketing background, she brings a perspective of “knowing your audience” and encourages flute players to expand their musical repertoire of styles so that they can serve a wider audience.

Vera is the guiding force in organizing flute workshops. She greets all registrants with a hug and a kiss and makes them feel immediately welcome. Vera provides all the information for workshops in terms of schedules and workshop descriptions. If there are any issues during a session, Vera is the “go to” person who will get the matter resolved.
