Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm; 7 hrs

We can all agree that playing the Native American flute fills our spirit; that's why you're here. At the heart of creativity resides a unique opportunity where we can connect our feelings to music and deliver it through our flute. But if you struggle with what to play and how it all works together, I want to help you! Banish mindless noodling and achieve a refined voice with your Native American flute that's more complete and structured.
Pulling from the ideas found in my new e-book, Songwriting Shortcuts for the Native American Flute, this one-day intensive will focus on the art of writing your own melodies, fleshing them out to be longer and more cohesive and adding appropriate techniques to increase interest.
- Create better phrasing methods so your flute playing sounds fresh and never leaves you gasping for breath
- Learn proper use and placement of embellishments so your music doesn't all sound the same
- Adopt a framework so you can create and share your song(s) with confidence; meaning you'll know exactly how and when to end your song
If you feel the call to advance your flute playing and strengthen your creative muscle, sign up to work with me at this special event in Midway, Utah!
