 “. . . the flute is a heart song. . . like a sweet prayer; it will teach you as well as you teach yourself . . .” 

~Mato Wambli



Odell Borg says ". . . a French horn is a type of musical instrument . . ., "Native American flute" refers to a particular type of musical instrument. . ."  This statement can be stretched further to say that you don't need to be French to play French music--to perform the French horn. And by extension, you don't need to be Native American to play Native American music on the Native flute. Paying proper respect to a given instrument's history and tradition, then expanding the scope of an instrument and increasing the number of people who play and get to hear them can only be a good thing for the future of said instrument.

"The Heart-center power, expressed as happiness and love, will guide upward on a path away from frustration, bitter toil and travail. These journeys are directed inward, not outwardly in material mementos of ego and possession. The lesson is relearning that which has been suppressed and forgotten, in ourselves, since our earliest childhood."

~R. Carlos Nakai

​​The hauntingly beautiful sounds of the native flute speak to your spirit.

Using your breath, you express yourself, your feelings and emotions through the flute.

The player develops a relationship with the flute that begins by picking out the flute in person.

We do not sell flutes online. We want you to "try before you buy".

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.”

~Lao Tzu


Welcome to

When you were born, you cried 

and the world rejoiced.

Live your life

so that when you die,

the world cries and you rejoice.

"Music is prayer. It is ceremony. Music is life. It is Sa'ah Naaghahl Blk'eh Hozhoon, the Beauty Way of Life. Music is an endeavor to restore harmony, health, serenity and balance to spirituality, emotions and our cognitive and physical processes. It fosters a compassionate comprehension of self and the world around us. .  .  "
