Trailhead of the Native American Indian Courting Flute
by Jeffery K Ball and Bruce A Whitten

You can learn to play the flute without reading music! You don't need to read music to use this easy to follow how-to-play book and CD Set. It has finger charts to show you where to place your fingers. A darkened hole means cover the hole up and a light hole means leave it open. It's that easy! This is not a songbook. It is a technique book teaching a series of lessons beginning with care and maintenance, scales for both the five and the six hole flutes, and then moves onto embellishments such as note bending, nature sounds, and breath control. You get both the visual of the book and the audio of the CD. The last two lessons are practice songs.

More Simple Songs for the 5 Hole Native American Flute

Simple Songs for the 5 Hole Native American Flute
Simple Songs for the 5 Hole Native American Flute

by Carol LaForet

Here is a book of 20 simple yet haunting songs written for the five hole Native American flute. Each song embodies some aspect of the rich traditions and culture surrounding the flute. No music reading skills are necessary, as all the notations are graphics of the 5 holes, the dark holes being the ones you must cover with your fingers to make that particular tone. It is plastic spiral bound so it lays flat in a music stand. Native American flute music comes from the soul, and is normally extemporaneous, but sometimes it is useful to have some music to practice as you learn to play it, and that is why this book can fulfill a special need, for adults as well as for children. We also include the following fingering charts: Minor Pentatonic Scales for 5 hole flute for keys of A, B, C, D, E, F#, and G. Chromatic Scales for 5 hole flute for keys of A, B, C, D, E, F#, and G. 20 songs in all.
