I am pleased to be able to share with you my experience being involved in the indigenous

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

My instruments are modern interpretations of traditional Plains flutes.   They are hand-made original designs but crafted to carry the spirit and voice of the old tunings.  My friend calls them "Acoustic Sculptures".  I call them Contemporary North American Flutes, my contribution to an ancient, but on-going and uniquely beautiful musical tradition of this continent. 

It has been 34 years now exploring a dream that a simple flute could stir the hearts of so many with its innocent and lovely music, a vision that was passed to me so that I could share it with you.
