Would you like to learn how to improvise and play beautiful music on the Native American Style Flute?This course is complete and to the point, teaching you all you need to know about this amazing instrument.My name is Andrew Ford and I have been teaching music to people of all ages for over 12 years. I first came across the Native American Style Flute in 2011 and immediately fell in love with its tone and expressiveness and how relatively easy it was to play.Playing the Native American Style Flute has taken me on quite a journey of self-exploration and emotional healing. Its music stirs something in the soul and it has become my mission to share this music with as many people as possible.The course is organised step by step and will take you through all the basics of playing the flute and get you improvising right away. Then later on in the course you will learn more advanced techniques that will take your playing to the next level and allow you to play with real feeling and emotion so that you can create your own beautiful music.To make things as simple as possible, throughout the course you will see diagrams and close up shots so that you can see exactly what my fingers are doing. Also included are a number of play-along backing tracks to help you on your journey.With a little bit of practice and commitment, you’ll soon become a master of the Native American Style Flute. So I look forward to seeing you inside.
