Well this class is for you. We will start on day one with a short lecture on the anatomy of the NAF and how it makes sound. We will quickly progress into how to install the cutting edge and shape the windway to produce an amazing haunting flute sound. We Will continue with preparation of the main flute chamber and how to properly glue and assemble the flute blank for shaping. Day 2 -- We start early on shaping our flutes using a spoke shaver and or a plane. We will observe and study several NAF shapes and syles, and talk in detail about wood species and how they affect the sound of your flute. Once shaped we will start installing the playing holes and tuning your flute for playing. Finally we will sum up our two day class with a brief introduction on playing the Native American Flute. We pace our classes where each student will have time to ask questions and have personal attention from our Instructor. Each student will build a complete working and playable Native American Flute, and at the end of your two days will go home with a flute that you can keep for generations.
