Learn To Play Native American Flute

OVERVIEW

Date: Aug 24, 2024 (10am-12pm) Cost: $15 (if you already have a Native American Flute) $50 (includes a PVC flute that’s yours to keep) Level: Beginner Instructor: Tom Farber Location: RMFS Building – 315 Pitkin Ave, Grand Lake, CO You’ve almost certainly heard this beautiful instrument, and been enchanted by the sound. It could have been watching Ken Burns’ recent series “American Buffalo”, or “How the West Was Lost”, “The West” or “The National Parks”; it may have been the last time you were at the Denver Airport and walked over the bridge from the main terminal to concourse A. In this workshop, you’ll acquire your first Native American style Flute (if you don’t already have one), learn about these flutes and the many resources available for players of the “NAF”, and start playing not just notes, but also the “Native American Flute Scale” and a Native American song that you’ll take with you…and you don’t need to know a thing about reading music! Playing these flutes is fun, easy (if you can breathe, you’ll get notes out of it), and is great for healing, relaxation and communing with nature. This course will be offered by Tom Farber (aka Glacier Gorge Music), who has been playing “NAF” for 10 years, teaching privately for more than 7 years and teaching at Colorado Free University for 5 years. Tom’s first album, titled “Fluting in the Rockies”, was released in 2021, and he will be releasing a new album this year, titled “Off the Beaten Path”.
