Playing The Pauses In Between Notes - Enhance Your Melodies With Spacing
For most players of the Native American Flute, we naturally focus on the notes themselves. The more experience that a player has, the more they tend to "play the note your on". Though the pauses and spaces in between each note are just as important as the notes themselves. It is the pauses that "frame" the melodies. In this workshop, we learn techniques that help to discover our own natural breathing points and how to align them with needed pauses.
Regardless of how experienced a player you are, learning how use pauses will help shape melodies and increase your ability to express them!
