    LEARN TO PLAY NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE with the WHITE OWL DUO    Limited to 12.  Minimum 6Playing the Native American flute is an opening into deeper expression of self because the soul connection is undeniable. LAURA LEE PERKINS, MS will be your flute instructor and flute-maker KEN GREEN will provide you with 6-hole flutes in the key of g. Because they use a finger-numbering system to teach you how to play, no musical background is required.Is it the wood's resonance, the natural modes that emulate the human voice, or the clarity of Native melodies that seems to awaken primal memories locked within the mysteries of our souls? When we feel summoned to new experience by the sound of the flute, are the ancients calling us, or do we long for meditative respite and peace? This class will explore the compelling power of this simple, indigenous instrument.$35RegistrationComments from previous class participants:  Even though I have no background, she made me feel like I could do it. / Well worth the money. / The class has been very gratifying! / Laura builds confidence in us novices. / Her sense of humor is wonderful! / Imparts a greater sense of appreciation of Native Americans. / She really loves the Native American Flute. / Lots of good material and sharing. / This class has been great and we have all asked for another! / Laura was wonderful! / No one got discouraged because the teacher is skilled and responsive to each person’s needs. / Laura is a fabulous teacher who presents the material fully but simply so that we are able to progress rapidly and feel a sense of accomplishment.
