Civic association Flautiada was founded in 2009 by a group of teachers and supporters of transverse flute as an effort and initiative towards high-quality education and promotion of flute playing in Slovakia. It was created as a reaction to the constant lack of information on the latest methods of flute education and from the need to compare the work of students and their teachers within an international environment.
Flautiada brings together teachers. flutists, students and supporters of flute play. Activities of the association include organisation of specialised seminars and workshops for students and teachers, preparation of concerts and events which help to promote high-quality flute playing in Slovakia.
The association’s main activity and priority is the preparation and organisation of the international competition Flautiada aimed at young flutists until the age of 26.
