Q. When you have a Flute Circle meeting, what do you do and can I come too?
A. You should join us - everyone is welcome! People who attend Flute Circle gatherings are players, makers, collectors or enthusiasts of contemporary or traditional North American Indigenous, Native American-style flutes. You are welcome if you are at all interested in this wonderful instrument. Of course, people come to find out the latest happenings in the contemporary NA flute community, to discover historical facts about the instrument, to learn how to play better, to ask questions about playing or specific building techniques; but some folks come to our gatherings simply to listen and absorb the energy our flute enthusiasm creates. At our meetings we: mingle, talk about personal experiences or events that have happened since the last gathering, discuss historical events and happenings related to NA flutes, set aside a time to ask and answer questions or share new things about our individual flute journeys - and then we play play play! There is much information available to attendees that is often difficult for individuals to find on their own. Come join us!

Q. Why are we doing this?
A. We all love hearing and/or playing the Native American-style flute and discovering new things about it. The instrument has intrigued most of us with it's sound, design, beauty and history. It is very satisfying to be able to learn to play an instrument that originated right here in the land on which we live our lives. The best thing is, the instrument is accessible to everyone because it is so easy to learn how to play. You do not have to have a musical education or consider yourself to be a musician in order to make music on this instrument. That is the best part! If you have ever wanted to be able to express yourself through a musical instrument, the NA flute is the perfect choice. Come find out how easy it is.
