Using a supplied kit, construct your easy-to-play flute. After constructing your instrument during our first meeting, following sessions will focus on learning the basic scale that uses only five holes. Even those with no musical experience can easily learn the scale and its limitless possibilities. From there we will experiment with playing freeform, heartfelt sounds producing an array of inspiring, personal music.
