“If you are a beginning NAF student, Ami Sarasvati’s course is an excellent way to learn to play this beautiful instrument. The lessons are easy to follow as your ability to play the flute quickly improves. It won’t be long before you are playing the Lakota Courting Song, Kiowa Love Song, and Amazing Grace –  and playing them well.”

“I’ve wanted to learn how to play the NAF for several years and being in Ireland, I didn’t know how to go about doing it. I found this course on how to play the Native American Flute very professional and engaging. The short videos “took charge” if that makes sense, so that I felt guided and held. Without any worry or perfectionism I was amazed that after just a few weeks of practice of 10 minutes a day, I have been able to play a piece by reading the music. I’ve had a few health challenges in the last few months but learning to play and express my feelings while playing, has been a therapeutic experience. I think it is just the beginning of my journey with the NAF.”

“I just love the daily and weekly practice sheets that come with the course.  They are a great tool to help you track your progress. I really enjoyed the course and can’t wait till I semi retire and will have lots of time to really practice and develop my skills.”

“I went thru the entire course and it is for sure a winner.  I like everything about it  from the arrangement of the subjects to the visuals. ”

“The Block posture lesson was great. I got sound from my flute today by using this video. It’s like having a teacher on tap.
Not only are the videos in this course short and sweet but they were self-contained. ”

Carmen Locke

“I loved this course!  It offers a comprehensive and detailed step by step practical approach for mastering all of the fundamental aspect of the Native American Style Flute.  By the end of the course you will have the confidence, inspiration, knowledge and skills to both improvise and play from notation, as well as a valuable resource you can go back to and visit again and again.  I highly recommend this course to beginners and to those who have some familiarity with the flute already but would like some guidance and inspiration to get back on track and progress your skills!”
