Navajo Flutes, Navajo
I am a flute player. I play heart
songs. I know not of written music on a score
sheet. My heart sings itís songs through the hollow pipe of the
flute with notes written on the breath of my life. I hear and
feel the music as it plays through me while my fingers nimbly more over
this wooden piece of wonder. It is not my intention to follow
a written score or keep the rhythm of anything but my
heart. When I play, the sounds of life move through
me and around me in harmony. Each song awakens me and bring me closer to
life itself. When I play, my stress is reduced there is a
peacefulness in my heart and when I teach all these things are shared.
" Fingers down, here let me help you."
"Iíve longed to play the Native American flute for over a year.
Finally an opportunity to learn. This class was inspiring and great fun.
It has put my passion into action. I now enjoy playing my new flute
" I love my flute and the class was great fun. I never
thought that I would ever be able to play a musical instrument. I am
really surprised at how easy this is to play."
"I am retired, and thought
I would try something different by signing up for this class. I am
really glad I did, because the Native American flute has become one of
my most enjoyable pastimes. I was really surprised at how much
good sounding music come out of this flute and I am playing it".
Denise Gould from Cottonwood Arizona writes:
"Play with your heart." This is the memory I have of the flute class. This instrument and itís teacher have connected me to the music of my heart. Thank you Carol!"
ďCarol has a magical way of relating to children of all ages and to the adults who work with them. She has been a real blessing to the children and the community of our church.Ē
