I've been playing the Native American flute since 1996 The first time I heard the flute it was on a cd. I didn't know what kind of instrument it was, but I knew I had to learn how to play this beautiful instrument. The sound of the flute was peaceful and unique. I had no clue how to buy a Native American flute or how to learn to play it. After searching for weeks,I finally found a music catalog that sold flutes. I was so excited when I received my first flute. I spent days and nights blowing into the mouth piece trying to make music. After a few weeks, the flute started to sing. Ah....What a beautiful sound. Now I own 34 beautiful flutes and enjoy playing each one. Each flute has it's own voice and song to be heard.
