Native American Flute Learning Circle

You are invited to a Native American Flute Learning Circle happening outdoors on a beautiful deck surrounded by trees in Fairfax, CA on Saturday, June 17th from 10am to 1pm.

This is an excellent opportunity to immerse into the blessings of the Native American style flute – even if you’ve never played before. I have a few beautiful Native flutes available if you currently don’t have a flute or if you would like to add a new easy to play beautiful flute to your collection.

Please visit the Awakening Sound website for more details and click the registration link to claim your space and join us!

Welcome to the new NAFLUTE Website!

Please excuse the mess around here for a bit, but we’re in the middle of making some changes to the Northern California Flute Circle website!

Things are definitely still happening in the flute world in Northern California and we’re changing things up a bit so that you can be better informed about all of the great events that are happening.

So please bear with us while we make the changes, and I hope that you’ll like the end result better. Unfortunately there will be some broken links for a little bit while we “rearrange the furniture”.
