Sit back, relax and have some fun playing music together on three Saturdays during Spring 2022. Let’s explore some musical styles.

In this session of the Spring Style Learning Series for Native Flute, we’ll move beyond our western major and minor scales and try some unique sounds from cultures around the world. Explore the possibilities of adding passion, tension and release available on our extended scale.

  • Learn songs together – you’ll receive the sheet music for NAF
  • Look at stylistic characteristics of the scales
  • Explore melodic ideas while improvising in alternate scales

Cornell will be using Native flutes in G-minor.
