HISTORY OF THE LOOKING WOLF NASF ACADEMY
It's been a long, beautiful journey of learning and teaching the NAF that helped shape the effective methods and approaches that we share with our students. Jan Michael taught his first NAF workshops in 2002. In addition to creating curriculum and instructing accredited Native American Flute courses at universities for the last 18 years, Jan Michael started his first NAF academy in 2006 called, "The Seven Directions of the Native American Flute". Over 40 NAF Players graduated that program with some becoming award winning recording artists including Mark Barger (Indian Summer Music Awards) and Tim Yett (Native American Music Awards Flutist of the Year Finalist).
In 2007, Jan Michael finished his first printed (hard copy) NAF course book with Woodsounds, then in 2009 with High Spirits. In 2012, Jan Michael and his team created the first inclusive eBook for accredited NAF courses. Following 3 years of beta testing and production, the Ebook evolved into a complete study of the instrument with dozens of interactive tutorial videos, lessons, flute diagrams, scales, songs, and techniques.
In an effort to help elevate the NAF community, in 2018, Jan Michael started the NASF Academy - a dynamic program with tailored study that produce tangible results that includes a mix of learning modalities - live instruction, group sessions, eBooks, video workshops and lessons, that all work together as the ultimate couch for his students. This is a school designed to support each NAF player's beautiful uniqueness and goals with their flute. While many students have went on to become recording artists such as Robin Gentlewolf, Simon Strongheart, Dennis Laughlin, Yuki Matsumoto, George Bolger, Benjamin Runningboar, and Ken Redhawk Noland, others have focused on more personal uses or becoming a NAF instructor themselves.
