Welcome​​


Herein lies a summary of experiences I have had being involved in the indigenous

flute tradition of North America, commonly referred to as the "Native American flute".


The resulting instruments are personal interpretations of the form and voice of historic Plains, Southwest, and Great Lakes woodlands flutes.  My colleague  calls them "Acoustic Sculptures".  I call them Contemporary North American Flutes, my efforts to contribute to an ancient, but on-going and uniquely beautiful musical tradition of this continent. 


It has been an interesting journey exploring a dream that a simple flute could stir the hearts of so many with its innocent and lovely music, and an old man's vision that this music could "become important."
