Weeklong Program

The weeklong program is the primary program for people who wish to improve their playing and jam with others.

The primary focus of the Flute Haven weeklong program is on:

  • Flute playing techniques at all levels (including a track designed for beginners)
  • Expressing yourself through organic, improvisational music-making,
  • Developing technique on the NAF and using that technique to increase your range of expressiveness, and
  • Song forms that let you play with other instruments — rhythm, guitar, piano, and voice.

We've found that participants learn the most when they are actually playing the most. At Flute Haven, participants are playing most of the time! You will get an opportunity to play solo and in ensembles in many settings and with many types of instruments, and work with facilitators from many different corners of music. Workshop sessions throughout Flute Haven focus on building confidence playing the flute in many settings and styles and expressing your inner voice.

Flute and Guitar Duet

Flute players with all levels of experience are welcome! We encourage the sounds of all players in a supportive and non-critical environment.

Topics

Workshop sessions throughout the Native Flute School focus on building confidence playing the flute in many settings and styles and expressing your inner voice. Topics include:

  • The elements of music — melody, harmony, rhythm, texture, and silence;
  • Basic Native Flute modes, techniques, and ornaments;
  • Basic improvisation techniques such as call-and-response, solo over drone, and repeated patterns;
  • Song forms such as A/B/A contrast, blues, and rounds.
