Finger Lakes Flute Circle Meeting Tuesday 12 July 2016

The Finger Lakes Flute Circle will meet Tuesday 12 July 2016, 6:30 pm, in the Arts and Crafts Room this month and next (rather than the Conference Room) at the Brookside School (Brighton Parks & Recreation), 1680 S Winton Rd, Rochester, NY 14618, entrance on Winton Rd, south of Westfall Rd. The official address, 220 Idlewood Rd, will take you through neighborhood streets to the alternate entrance on the other side of the building.

If you are completely new to the Native American flute, you are very much welcome and encouraged to come and learn! No prior experience or preparation is necessary. Most of the members of the group had zero experience playing Native flute, and some even no musical experience. It's very easy to learn to play. No written music required. We just play the flute and make beautiful music.

There will be beginner flutes available to try out. We'll have a great time making music with Native American flutes, hand percussion, and drums.

$5 contribution is suggested to help with and room rental costs.

All comers of all experience levels are welcome, and we will make beautiful music together. See you there!
