Join us for some musical fun. Can you move five fingers? Do you enjoy music? Then you can enjoy playing the Native American Flute. It has six holes and only requires that you breathe into it. It is one of the simplest instruments to learn to play. People with no musical experience learn in no time at all. The only cost is $35 (preferable in cash) for the flute.

You will learn the scale, how to create and enhance your melodies, how to play in a duet or trio and how to play with a backing track.

Interested children need to be old enough to cover the holes in the flute - usually around the age of eight or nine. Parents need to attend the first class with the child.
