The Thrills of Trills and Techniques: Virtual Workshop

$ 35.00

Bring new life to your melodies by incorporating trills, tonguing techniques, and embellishments.

Creating melodies on the Native American Flute is a relaxing and rewarding way to bring joy into our lives. Sometimes, we lose focus on the joy that the Native American Flute can bring and we get stuck on not knowing what to play, or simply continue to play the same melodies over and over again. 


Together we will cover the following:

Join Timothy J.P. Gomez and Jonny Lipford for this online workshop that focuses on those struggles and how to move past them by incorporating trills, tonguing techniques, and embellishments between the melodies to build the bridge between the gaps of our songs. Various examples will be shown with basic melody structures and how to fill in the gaps, with various trills, tonguing techniques, and embellishments to bring a new life to our songs.


Demonstrations will be performed on G Minor and A Minor Flutes.


The workshop content is scheduled to last 90 minutes. There will be a 15-20 minute Q&A at the end of the program for those who wish to stick around. 
Following the workshop, you will also receive a recorded version hosted inside the Native Flute Academy.  


Seating is limited to 30 participants in each session!
