    IS it my flute? Or is it me?


    Native American flutes are largely hand-made instruments and, whether you have one or over a hundred of them, you'll quickly realize that the tuning may be inconsistent and some notes are hard to chase down. 


    While this can be frustrating, we can also look at it through the lense of opportunity. This is an excellent opportunity for you to grow as a flute player while building a preference around your perfect flute.
