The Carolyn Nussbaum Music Company with Jake Fridkis

Texas All-State Etudes, 2020

Here at the Carolyn Nussbaum Music Company we know that not every Texas high school student has access to a private teacher, particularly during COVID-19. Our goal is to provide a series of educational videos on this year’s etudes with full performances by a world-class flutist, as well as tips and tricks for taking auditions.

We are thrilled to partner with Jake Fridkis to create this video series as a resource for our Texas high school flutists. If you are struggling to get going on this year’s All-State music, then these videos are for you!
