This online course is the perfect place to start your journey of learning to play the Native American style flute (NAF).

No musical experience is necessary. In fact, for many people, learning to play the NAF is their first experience playing an instrument. This course will guide you through the basics of playing your flute right away.

A New Musical Voice

The flute gives us a new musical voice to help us express our feelings as well as being an outlet for our creativity. Perhaps you are wondering if you could just learn by watching videos on YouTube. Although there is a lot of great material on the internet, these videos are not an actual tried and proven, step by step course on how to play the instrument from the very beginning.

Learn from anywhere at any time!

A big advantage to the online version of my course is that you can go back anytime, learning at your own pace, in the privacy of your home or wherever you are streaming the course.

Both the ebook and the tracks from my CD  are included in this course. With a moderate amount of dedication, you can learn to play the NAF in a relatively short amount of time. The flute invites you to discover your heartsong, which is a focus of the course.

Hi! I'm Ami Sarasvati

Thanks for checking out my course. I'm an author, course creator, teacher, online group facilitator, and a Certified Music Practitioner (CMP).

I fell in love with the flute many years ago at a bookstore in Colorado where R. Carlos Nakai's Canyon Trilogy CD was playing. 

Years later, a friend had some flutes and encouraged me to play. I tried it out, with gentle guidance, and never looked back. I loved the sound of the instrument and I wanted to do everything I could to play it as beautifully as I could.

After taking lessons and courses online, attending workshops, and spending time exploring this instrument, I felt I was ready to start teaching workshops. I wrote and designed the first edition of the book, had copies made at a local copy shop, and started teaching locally. 

Fast forward a few years... I published my book, Learn to Play the Native American Style Flute, in 2014 on Amazon. 

The Recorded Course

After years of teaching this material and refining it, class by class, student by student, I recorded this entire course so that anyone, anywhere in the world with a flute and the course could learn to play this wonderful instrument in the comfort and privacy of home. Here it is for you!

Our world needs more live music. Join me in bringing these soothing sounds to yourself and if you feel called to do so, to others as well.

Here is what other people say about this course:

Learning to play the Native American style flute is a journey. With any journey it always helps to have a guide and a road map. Ami is your guide and her online course is your road map! Her course is well laid with engaging videos explaining critical points and techniques. The course contains her book, music sound files, and many resources. By the time you finish this course you will be well down the path to discovering your own Heartsong on the Native American style flute!

Ami’s method of teaching people to play the Native American style flute simplifies difficult musical concepts in understandable nuggets of doable knowledge.

This method has allowed me, for the first time in my life, to ‘play from my heart’ rather than the ink and paper. Finally, I feel like a musician instead of just a technician.

If you are a beginning NAF student, Ami Sarasvati's course is an excellent way to learn to play this beautiful instrument. The lessons are easy to follow as your ability to play the flute quickly improves. It won't be long before you are playing the Lakota Courting Song, the Kiowa Love Song and Amazing Grace – and playing them well.

- George Bryjak

I found this course on how to play the Native American Style Flute very professional and engaging. Without any worry or perfectionism I was amazed that after just a few weeks of practice of 10 minutes a day, I have been able to play a piece by reading the music.

- Jackie Rasmus

I just love the practice sheets that come with the course. They are a great tool to help you track your progress. I really enjoyed the course and can't wait till I semi retire and will have lots of time to really practice and develop my skills.
