The key of A is a great key for a beginning flute as well as a must have key for the flute enthusiast. The hole spacing is great for hands on the smaller side but not to close for larger hands. So the key of A is a good balanced key.

Jonah makes these flutes by hand, hand tunes them and hand carves the animal fetishes as well. These flutes are a great value and wonderful instruments. They are 6 hole instruments made of ponderosa pine that has a warm tone similar to cedar.
You may choose the animal block from the option selection.

Beginners Song Book
Here is a book of 15 simple songs written for beginners to be played on the six hole Native American flute. These are our easiest songs. Four songs may be played as rounds with two groups or two flutes. No music reading skills are necessary, as all the notations are graphics of the 6 holes, the dark holes being the ones you must cover with your fingers to make that particular tone. It is 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.
