“I was a little intimidated at first, but Ami put me right at ease. It turned out to be fun, having my lesson in my bedroom slippers. And best of all, I didn’t have to drive anywhere. This is a great opportunity to learn from any teacher, anywhere who was previously inaccessible.”
“Imagine yourself sitting in your living room, doing something you have wanted to do for years—no wolfing down dinner, rushing out the door or driving an hour to get somewhere in time. That’s how my experience was with Ami Sarasvati and my deep desire to learn how to play the Native American flute. It was like having an expert under your own roof at your own time! I had tried using books and CDs before on my own, but without much success. The difference was Ami could tell me on which elements to focus first, help me interpret nuances of each lesson and recommend drills which best meet my personal needs. Ami is a flexible, patient teacher who is gentle and non-threatening in her approach. Her fees are affordable, and I would recommend her tutelage without reservation. I have made great strides in my flute playing! Happy playing.”
“After only four private sessions with Ami, I can now play the Native American Flute (NAF), and with several ornaments to boot! And my husband loves what he hears me play! I’m now trying out different pieces, and experimenting with my own in-the-moment compositions, enjoying my improvisations, and adding the ornaments I learned for a great sound. I couldn’t believe that I could play the NAF in such a short time! Thanks, Ami. You’ve been very supportive and ready to say an encouraging comment even when I couldn’t produce a full sound or note. You’ve inspired me to have fun with the flute, be easy on myself, and play the flute every day. And I’m also glad that we could talk about how my yoga breathing practice could infuse meaning to my flute playing – what a happy intersection of yoga and music! I’m ready for the next level!”
