Requirements

Let's get you started off on the right note! Here are the three things you'll need to get the most out of this course.

  • A willingness to learn and be patient with yourself!
  • A 6-Hole modern NAF (Native American Flute). The key doesn't matter, however, I filmed this course in the key of E.
  • Internet connection as videos are streamed and not downloadable (however, the printable guide is for off-site learning).

Soaring high

This course helped me understand that I was playing the higher notes wrong. I was having a hard time sustaining those notes above the octave but with Jonny's help, I was able to stay with those notes longer. There's no beating around the bush either, Jonny gets right to the point. I was able to go through this course in a day, though I kept coming back for refreshers when I would slip and forget.
