Musical fun with flutes and percussion make our flute circle relaxing and creative. We play the music of our heart and enhance it with drums, shakers, chimes or whatever we bring with us. Even if you don't know how to play the flute, come and join in on the percussion instruments. If you want to learn to play the flute, we will teach you. If you can move five fingers and breathe, then you can play the flute. If you don't have a flute, they are $35. Come join us in musical fun as a flute player and/or as a percussionist.

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 accompany their child.
