The mission of UMFA is to connect people from all backgrounds with a passion for the flute in the Upper Midwest through a variety of educational programs and resources, flute-oriented events, and youth-focused Scholarship programs.


Our vision is to be the premier flute association in the Upper Midwest.

Guiding Principles

To fulfill our mission and achieve our vision, we are guided by the following values and principles:

  • UMFA celebrates the long history of the flute and promotes the art of playing the flute in all its forms.

  • UMFA encourages the composition, instruction, and performance of music for the flute. In particular, UMFA values representation from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and other marginalized populations.

  • UMFA welcomes flutists from all backgrounds and skill levels. UMFA values and advocates for diversity in all forms across all of our constituents: our Board, membership, programming, guest artists, Scholarship award recipients and corporate partners.

  • UMFA provides our members a wide variety of offerings including live and virtual events, digital communications via email and social media platforms, a music library and low flute rental program, educational and networking opportunities, and other programs that stimulate an interest in, and appreciation for, the flute.
