I recommend to flute players of any level to have this experience, you'll quickly step into the next level in your flute practice!Thank you, Ory, for all your efforts and the energy you provide during your classes.

  • 5 star review  I had a fabulous week participating in FluteinWien! Ory transformed my sound from being a rather unfocused tone to a gloriously rich full focused tone in the course of 5 days. His patience and ability to explain minute adjustments within the embouchure and oral cavity were extremely beneficial. Having gone through this experience, I feel a lot more confident on how to approach and maintain a consistent tone throughout my repertoire, excerpts, and etudes. To finish each flute masterclass with a pleasant chat, fresh home-made cheesecake, and cappucino or tea, made for a great reward after a lot of hard work on the flute. Thank you so much for a great week Ory!

  • 5 star review  What was great about this masterclass was that it was a lot more personal and helpful than some of my masterclass experiences. There was a nice amount of playing time with Ory, and we basically worked on or improved certain concepts that I didn't even know could help my playing in general. His teaching and advice on the music I brought in really helped me gain a new perspective how I should approach a piece and what I want to accomplish with it. It was also a great personal experience because each class was followed by a great and casual conversation followed by cheesecake and coffee which is hard to pass up! It was definitely a different but enriching experience to try out, and I'm glad I was able to do it this summer!

  • 5 star review  Maestro Ory's masterclasses proved incredibly helpful to me in preparation for an upcoming international competition. In only twelve hours of lessons, three per day, we thoroughly covered some of the most difficult music in the flute repertoire. Equally knowledgeable on everything from Telemann to Jolivet, Maestro Ory presented to me a refreshing and innovative approach not only to the music itself but to practicing tone and technique in general. I feel far more confident going into this competition thanks to his guidance, and I would recommend his course to any colleague.

  • 5 star review  What a great week with Ory. He worked me hard, which is what I wanted. He re-enforced the teachings of my present and past flute teachers, and also contradicted others, which left me needing to decide for myself what was best for me. The beauty of having a week of masterclasses is that there is the continuity and opportunity to have Ory check the work from the previous day. We warmed up, getting air through the flute. Straight away Ory introduced me to ‘the wall’, which help... ed me find my air speed. We then worked through technique; in my case, air speed, embouchure, tone, tone colour, intervals and more delicate work on dynamics. We finished with repertoire. We worked on the pieces that I am preparing for an exam and we applied the technique that we have had covered in the first half. We also covered some Bach and Mozart for which Ory taught me new technique to make it more musical and appropriate for the period. Ory is very knowledgeable. He is also VERY patient as there was much work to do with me. I took a couple of weeks before I wrote this review to give me a chance to put into practice his teaching. It has taken a couple of weeks to settle, but I am now feeling what produces a better sound. He encouraged me to ‘feel’ the sensation of a good result. Ory is VERY hospitable, offering a beautifully homemade cake and fresh coffee at the end of the session. I shall be returning to Ory in October for further a masterclass as my exam date gets nearer. Thank you Ory.

  • 5 star review  Dear flutist friends,I recently had the fortunate opportunity to meet Ory and study with him over several days in January through his program “Flute in Wien” – a flexible and personalized masterclass/lessons workshop. In case you travel to Europe in the near future or you are looking to invite a clinician to your city or school for masterclasses, I would urge you to consider contacting Ory. He is truly a master of the flute and an excellent teacher. He was precise in his analysis of areas that needed work in my playing, and very effective in terms of finding creative ways of approaching problems from different angles, whether it was developing on-the-spot exercises or by making clear and insightful explanations and suggestions. Ory also had an infinite number of fresh ideas to offer musically in the way he thinks about phrasing, articulation styles and the overall interpretation of pieces. Taking classes with Ory was a truly special and enriching experience that I will continue to draw upon for a long time to come. All levels are welcome and the fees are quite reasonable. Not to mention, this fellow makes some of the best coffees and cakes you’ll get anywhere!

  • 5 star review  This was my first masterclass in a foreign country, and I honestly did not know how this was going to go. Ory made my stay there welcoming. He made sure that everyone doing the masterclass was comfortable. Ory helped me with my graduate recital repertoire, and gave me really good tips on how to interpret them. Ory explained concepts very well; I was not confused at what he meant. I now have a great headstart at my recital rep because of him. I loved how I could watch my colleague's masterclass and learn from her's. Oh, did I also mention his coffee and his cheesecakes are delicious? I would recommend this masterclass to any Flutist. It is worth the money.

  • 5 star review  With a lot of fun I attended the masterclass end of February with Ory which were incredibly informative and tailored to my individual needs. Back home, my regular teacher heard immediately the tremendous change and improvement of the sound and my progress. And Vienna is really worth a visit because of its sightseeing, shopping and nightlife. But the final touch for me was this combination of city trip, learning, self-roasted coffee ♥ and the delicious homemade cake. This mixture has made my stay to something very special. We will see each other again for sure. Thank you so much. ♫ ♫ ♫ Mit viel Spaß habe ich an der Meisterklasse mit Ory teilgenommen. Es war unglaublich informativ und auf meine individuellen Bedürfnisse zugeschnitten. Zu Hause hat mein regulärer Lehrer sofort die ungeheure Veränderung und Verbesserung des Klanges und des Fortschrittes gehört. Und Wien ist wegen seiner Sehenswürdigkeiten, Shoppingmeile und Nachtleben wirklich einen Besuch wert. Aber das ganz Besondere ist die Kombination des Städtereisens, des Lernens, mit selbst geröstetem Kaffee ♥ sowie leckerem hausgemachten Kuchen. Denn diese Mischung hat mir den Aufenthalt zu etwas ganz Besonderem gemacht. Wir werden uns wiedersehen !! Ich danke dir vielmals. ♫ ♫ ♫
