"The Art of the Native American Flute"

This book is a summation of R. Carlos Nakai's years as an educator, performer and student of the Native American flute. Part One includes discussions on tunings, fingerings, performance technique, tablature, style, history, standard notation, traditional ornaments plus a section on the care and maintenance of the flute. Part Two includes sixteen transcriptions of Nakai's songs plus two of DeMars' compositions. Part Three is an analysis of Nakai's role in Native American culture as a recording artist and performed by the eminent ethnomusicologist David P. McAllester. More than a performance guide, this book is an important source on the Native American flute and a concise review of the career and artistry of one of the most important ethnic artists in America. 132 pages.

"I received the order today, and would like to thank you for such fast and accurate service.
I would also like to let you know that your efforts in packaging make a difference. When I received the box, it had been partially crushed and the styrofoam peanuts were falling out of what was left of the box's endflap. I was expecting a disaster. However...due to the care that was shown when the flute was packaged, it was actually unharmed. With this type of customer service, I feel it would be foolish to look any place else for my flutemaking supplies. May I once again offer my sincere thanks for the quality of your products and service."

~John C. "Pete" Glesser
