Well… I finally got around to ordering my Native American Flute, after a bit of research I settled on getting a flute in the key of G.
I was no older than eight when I started playing the piano. I still play. The Native American flute, is an instrument that I’ve always wanted to learn and recently I decided I would teach myself.
My 10 yo daughter (who also plays the piano) has promised me that she will do duets with me once I get the basics down. I did tell her she’ll have to take it easy on me until I’ve mastered the flute. Do you ever really master an instrument? It seems to me that with the piano I’m always learning something even though I’ve been playing for over 35 years.
There are a few songs that are on my must be able to play on the flute list. I’ve listed them below. I already play them on the piano and so does my daughter.
Until recently, I did not know the name of the song House of the Rising Sun but I was able to play it by ear. I read music and do play a lot of piano music by ear. I even create my own songs. I look forward to doing the same, eventually, with the flute.
Of course… I’m already planning on creating a beaded flute case for my new musical instrument.
