It has been said that learning to play the Native American Flute can change your life
When John Vames discovered the sound of the Native American Flute in 1998 he started a crusade to spread the Word! As a Music Educator he was impressed not only with the sounds of Native American music, but with how easy it was to learn to play. He quickly incorporated it into his teaching curriculum at Scottsdale Community College in Arizona to include Native American Flute lessons. What came out of that was the writing of his first Book, "The Native American Flute: Understanding the GIft". At the time a flute fever was spreading across the country and there wasn't an understandable and friendly text to help people learn... Now, over 50,000 books later it is the most respected How-to Book on the planet for learning to play this beautiful Native American Instrument. John Vames left us in July 2010 but his teachings, books, and music go on.
Thank you John Vames
The Sound of the Native Flute helps both the Player and the Listener
Imagine yourself entertaining your friends and family and sharing this beautiful music. What is so encouraging is that almost anyone regardless of prior musical experience can learn to play in a short time. Unlike piano and guitar that require years of study, this Native instrument is low tech. All you need to do is cover the tone holes and with a steady stream of air breathe into the flute. It is your breath that will give the wood life. The sound is enjoyed by the listener and a relaxation will spread over you because of your deep breathing. It is no wonder that the Native American Flute is used to soothe and heal in helping professions by hospice nurses and musical therapists, and spiritual healers.
A Song in Your Heart
That's all you need to start playing. Of course you need a promise to yourself to achieve your new goal of adding music to your life. A little practice will go a long way in learning the simple basics presented in John's books. I guarantee that if you spend some quiet time each day with your new friend you will be rewarded.
