A Flute Circle is a venue where people who are interested in and connected to the Native American flute can gather and share their talents and experiences with one another. It is a gathering in which people can help one another musically, spiritually, and educationally.
Flute Circle gatherings provide a sense of connection that results in everyone growing musically, from the beginner to the recording artist. People feel a spiritual bond created by the music of the flute, so in a Flute Circle, a type of flute family develops. Often times, one learns more through the people connection than through reading books or listening to tapes and CDs. Ultimately, the greatest teacher is still the flute itself, but when you are in a rut or your playing is stuck on a plateau, nothing gives a greater boost than to spend time with other flute players.
