WELCOME to the Pacific Northwest Flute
Circle home. You may be asking yourself what exactly is
a Native American Flute Circle?
We are a group of people from various backgrounds
in life with various outlooks but with one common interest
- the Native American flute and its beautiful haunting
music. We are all different and contribute equally to
our circle. We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month between
3 and 5 p.m. You do not need a musical background or
know how to play the Native American flute to be a part
of our group. If you want to have fun, if you love music,
if you have an interest in discovering the beauty and
song of the Native American Flute, then we hope you will
WHAT DO WE DO AT A FLUTE CIRCLE meeting?
We play our flutes!
Playing is the very best way to learn.
Whether you are the one playing or you are listening
to someone else play, you learn something new each and
every time. Sometimes we have an open mic which allows
you to play with special added sound effects. We share
stories about our playing experiences. We gain confidence
in playing by performing in front of an audience of encouraging
and supportive friends. We also share new resource information
and music we have discovered. Occasionally we may have
'known' flute players attend our meetings who wish to
share an experience of playing with us.
We are starting a mentoring program for
new members. All new members will be paired up with an
experienced player who will teach you on a "one
to one" basis and answer any questions you might
have about the instrument.
We meet new friends:
We meet many interesting people from various
backgrounds and ages.
The Pacific Northwest Flute Circle is
free and open to anyone who makes, plays, studies, or
is interested in the Native American Flute. Our goal
is to educate and showcase our members, as well as, educating
the public about the Native American Flute and it's historical
and contemporary significance. Our agenda varies from
month to month, leaving room for anyone to come to our
flute circle and present or just share their knowledge
and/or flutes with our group.
With a growing interest in playing the
Native American flute, people are forming Native American
flute circles all over the United States. The Pacific
Northwest Flute Circle is a small but growing group of
flute players and flute enthusiasts who come together
to play their instruments. Some members are beginner
flute players who want to learn, some members are experienced
players who want to improve their ability and meet other
flute players and then some people just come to have
fun, listen to the music, and to enjoy the warmth and
friendship that exists among our group. The Pacific Northwest
Flute Circle is for anyone who loves the Native American
flute, regardless of their ability, talent, or musical
background. You don't have to be a flute player to join
our Group and there is no membership fee to join. If
you have an appreciation of the Native American flute
and it's music or you are interested in learning to play,
we welcome you to join us. There will be an array of
instruments including flutes, drums, and various other
percussive instruments for your enjoyment. Again, we
appreciate all who have attended the meetings over the
past year for sharing their knowledge, work, and passion
for the Native American flute and look forward to another
great year ahead!

about the Native American Flute is that it is an instrument
of the heart. Any song that comes from the heart is a
