What's a Flute Circle? By Alan Stanz Native American Flute Circle Leader
A flute circle is a gathering of people like the ones described above who meet on a regular basis to share music, talents, and gifts. We discuss the construction of flutes, the playing of flutes, the writing of flute music. We learn to make flutes and flute quivers. We are interested in Native American culture, the history of the First Peoples, and we seek to learn from each other about these things. We share food and fellowship with each other. But above all, we play the flute! Here are the basics about our flute circles, and check the specific circle articles below for any particular notes about parking or things to bring:
New Community Support The Native American Church of Virginia supports the local Native American Flute Circle. Members are teachers and telephone company employees, wood carvers and flute makers, hospital personnel and counselors, factory workers and retired folks, business owners and musicians, leather crafters and community volunteers, performers and educators. In other words, participants are folks just like you, but we all share a common passion: the Native American Flute. __________________________
Circles usually take place in the afternoon -- leave when you have to but we hope you can come for the entire circle
Small and informal, they're great places to learn
If you're a beginner, let us know and someone will work directly with you
Traditional pow-wow etiquette is the rule; no smoking or alcoholic beverages
Flutes, drums, rattle, shakers, other instruments are all welcome.
