'Neflac is one of those organisations that keep the world turning. It gives such unbelievable opportunities to young musicians and builds musical and personal memories that they will never forget. I am fortunate enough to be involved with quite a few youth based projects around the world, but Neflac stands out as such a positive experience for all involved. The students professionalism, dedication, intensity and sheer joy of playing music was totally infectious and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of working with them all.' - Dominic Seldis
The Netherlands Flute Academy (Neflac), an initiative of Emily Beynon and Suzanne Wolff, was established in 2009.
Being passionate about the flute, we contribute to building an active and thriving flute community in the Netherlands.
Society without music is unthinkable. Music has always been in our daily lives and thats for a reason. Music enriches, tells the story of different cultures, connects, enhances the general development of children, stimulates creativity and most of all... is fun to do as well as to listen to.
Music moves each and everyone!!
Above is obvious, but not always recognized. Too often, in the Netherlands, music is positioned at the fringe of society. As an extra.
Neflac wants the flute to have a full-fledged place in Dutch society by showing its unique distinctive identity and character, and familiarize as many people as possible (of all ages) with the instruments in the flute family, from piccolo to contrabase flute.
To achieve our vision it is first and foremost important to wake up the flute sector, and direct our energy to make flute playing and listening to flute music more attractive and interesting. With the result that:
Our main focus is on education and concerts.
And we do more....!
On Emily Beynon's initiative, the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation (NMF) added a contrabaseflute to her collection which can be used for projects by all flute professionals in the Netherlands.
We have a good cooperation with our colleague flute organisations in the Netherlands and Europe.
inspire, motivate, stimulate, learn, quality and fun!
