Welcome to the Acceptd Application Portal for VFMF!

Virtual Flute Music Festival provides world-class instruction to motivated young flutists via a well-designed online festival that focuses both on expertise in playing and courageous thinking through mindset training.  Through VFMF, participants have the opportunity to interact with  industry leading artists and thinkers, who are often the gatekeepers to top conservatories and symphonies.  VFMF is unique, 100% online, and at the leading-edge of a new reality in music making.  Free from the limitations of location and travel, VFMF brings together artists from around the world to mentor and inspire the next generation of flutists.
