November 20th (Saturday) 10 am PT - Online Workshop Breath Techniques
The most important technique with playing the NAF is by far BREATH. How a player breathes into the flute provides the foundation for all other techniques. There are dozens of breath variations that will help broaden musical expressions and connection. From the very subtle note "dropping" to the placement of increasing breath pressure, mastering control of a player's breath is an essential step in the journey.
- These workshops will improve your connection with the flute, creating music, and over all techniques.
- The sessions feel like a personal lesson and are conducted in small groups and are designed in a way that every participate benefits regardless of experience level.
- Jan Michael is a 17 year university Instructor of accredited Native American Flute courses, a twice published author of the Native American Flute, and collectively has taught over 15,000 people how to play the instrument. He is the creator of the NASF Apprentice Program and has developed easy to learn approaches to master your own abilities and playing.
