Autoharp, Native American Flute: Lessons, Performance, Recordings

Information about Online Lessons

I have been teaching Prizim, Autoharp and Native American Flute to students of all ages for over 20 years. I have a very casual, relaxed approach to both instruments. My lessons are appropriate for beginner intermediate and advanced players.  Lessons are available online via Skype or Google "hangouts" video sessions. 

 

While I believe strongly in the advantages of reading music and understanding music theory, neither are required, and I work from a philosophy of teaching you to hear things "by ear" and train your ability to find your way without being "chained" to the page.   

Autoharp

I play Chromatic, Diatonic, and Prizim style, and can teach any of these. In addition to learning correct left and right hand techniques, you will also eventually learn correct tuning, restringing and refelting.  Typically,  lessons are reserved on a weekly basis.  Lessons are $25 an hour. Usually I will arrange a "package deal" with you:  if you buy 4 lessons up front, you will get a fifth for free.  If you would like to discuss lessons, use the contact form.

Native American Flute

 I focus on improvisation, breath control, fingering, and evocative methods of drawing the most out of your playing (connecting with nature, visualizations, etc).  Typically lessons are reserved on a weekly basis. Lessons are $25 an hour. Usually I will arrange a "package deal" with you: if you buy 4 lessons up front, you will get a fifth for free. If you would like to discuss lessons, use the contact form.
