“We had such an amazing time in your beautiful village and have come away inspired, nourished (in more than one sense of the word!), relaxed and with some new friends for life. And last, but not least, what we have taken away from our flute lessons and group session. Thank you, thank you “– Claire C.
“Energised and re-connected after a wonderful #bohoflute retreat in Cornwall with the inspirational musician that is Jessica Quiñones @jqflute – thank you

“Dear Jessica, Thank you for the great days with you on the flute course. The lessons were just what I needed and feel that I now have a practice plan and some new music and ideas to focus on. What a great massage…loved the yoga, too! I hope I will be able to return one day. With love to you” — Susie A. x.
“Jessica is a warm and deeply empathetic flute teacher with a beautiful belief that there is a space for every kind of flute player in this world. She is currently working with me to help me become the type of flute player that I want to be and it is a beautiful process of discovering new repertoire, reconnecting with the instrument and fun, challenging exercises that bring more freedom to my playing. I first met Jessica on her beautiful Cornwall Boho retreat for flute players and had some lessons there in person. We are now continuing via Skype which is working really well. If you are looking for a teacher to reawaken your inspiration for the flute, I can not recommend Jessica highly enough!” — Hannah D.
“I had the true privilege of attending Jessica’s Boho Nourished Flautist Retreat in St. Agnes in September 2019, having stumbled across it on a Google search of flute masterclasses.The three hours of one-to-one lessons I attended with Jessica as part of the retreat package were the most informative and enjoyable flute lessons I’ve ever had in many years of studying flute with private teachers in the USA, Germany and Northern Ireland. Jessica’s level of professional knowledge and expertise with all things related to flute-playing far surpasses that of any teacher I’ve worked with in over 35 years of my playing the flute.
Her warm, welcoming friendly approach instantly put me at ease and allowed me to feel comfortable enough to relax and play to my best ability. It was wonderful not to have to waste time feeling nervous and really just get straight down to work, improving my hand-position, finger technique and tone. I made noticeable improvements within just three hours of face-to-face lessons and just recently enjoyed my first follow-up lesson with Jessica by Skype (I would have to take 2 flights to reach Cornwall, so decided to give the Skype lesson a go). What a pleasant surprise to discover that my Skype lesson with Jessica was every bit as useful, thorough and productive as meeting with her in person!
She is helping me to critically analyse my chosen pieces from an entirely new perspective, which is the benefit of having such a highly-qualified professional teacher. I’m so grateful I trusted my gut instinct and booked my place on the Boho Retreat this past September. Not only did I learn so much about flute-playing, I made some wonderful new friends (we are still keeping in touch) and have beautiful memories of the amazing countryside around St Agnes.
The professionally guided hikes along the stunning Southwest Coastal Path were a highpoint for me of the retreat, as well as swimming in the beautifully calm Trevaunance Cove. The energizing yoga class and calming back massage offered by local professional providers rounded out what was a truly holistic retreat weekend and I can’t wait to return next summer!”” — Susan M.
