The Native American Style Flute An Intuitive Instrument

The Native American flute is a folk instrument. Folk instruments are usually tuned to a five note scale. This makes learn to play an intuitive experience. You don't need to learn to read music. You don't need to study. Let your fingers explore and the flute will begin to teach you.

When I use the words 'intuitive instrument' I mean you can feel your way into making expressive music with your flute. You don't have to memorize and apply any rules. You don't have to learn how to read music. You can let your finger explore and they will automatically begin to pick out little tunes.

The flute and the music coming through it have many, many lessons to teach. There are lessons about healing and love. Lessons about Peace and respect. Lessons about self-confidence and connectedness.

Relax. Your heart will respond to the sounds you are making with your flute. Muscle memory will spontaneously develop a connection between your fingers and the music. As you play your Native American style flute you will instinctively be lead deeper into more expressive sound creations.

As you play your fingers will become more proficient at expressing the musical sounds of your Soul. Your fingers and your whole being will take great joy and satisfaction in doing this. When music is coming through you freely the sounds of the Soul are being manifested in the physical dimension.

The wonderful thing about a NA flute is that it is tuned to a pentatonic scale. A musical scale is just a little tune. Within a scale we can compose little structures of sound vibration in time. With a pentatonic or five-note scale all of the notes sound harmonious with each other in any combination. There are no sour notes. A sour note is sort of the opposite of a harmonic or loving note. . Remember, time is our friend guiding us and giving us space to create. There is no rush to master anything. No pressure. No place to go. There is nothing to accomplish. That's not what we're using the flute for. We can, in fact, use the flute to get away from those kinds of dysfunctional mental and emotional spaces. Those are behaviors that are connected with anxiety, pressure and a neurotic need for accomplishment.

If you are feeling any of those emotions it's time to examine the mental and emotional space you're in and maybe make a shift. When we are playing our flute we don't need to have an intention or preconceived idea of what to express. Music flows out of the Universal soul through us. It weaves its magic and disappears. In the act of making music we come into contact with something greater than our individual selves.

People all over the planet are finding the Native American flute. You can too. Play your own music. You will be helping to make the world a better place.

I remember when I came across up my first Native American style flute. It was made out of a crooked piece of river cane. A vendor...
