About the Event

In this 3-part workshop you will learn how to write and notate your own songs without words on the Native American Style Flute.  Students will begin to discover and refine their own musical creative process as well as share ideas and methods with others. This is a creative workshop and there is no right or wrong way to write your music. Collaboration and mutual inspiration can be incredibly enriching!

Class 1 will cover:

  • Common song structures and techniques
  • Free form songs
  • Sources of inspiration
  • Recording and notating your songs
  • Use of embellishments and alternative notes
  • Beginning your first song

In Class 2, students will have the opportunity to play their song-in-progress for the class and give and receive suggestions from other classmates. We will also discuss:

  • Defining and refining your unique creative process.
  • Creating your own library of phrases and techniques.
  • The importance of balance between sound and silence.
  • Additional song structures and techniques.
  • Revise and polish your song – how to know when it’s finished.

Finally in Class 3 we will deepen our discussion on creative techniques and methods and review and/or perform our final songs. We will explore how to integrate the creation of music into our daily lives and to deepen that process.

This is a relaxed, yet intensive workshop. Class size is limited to ensure that every participant has a chance to learn, grow and create.

Students are required to have taken the Leaning Native American Style Flute workshop and to have a clear understanding of the primary scale of the flute. Knowledge of embellishments is also helpful, but not a requirement. 

Feel free to contact us at if you have any questions about what the right workshop for you is.
