Flute
The heart of this kit is a High Spirit Sparrow Hawk flute in the key of A. This is a professional quality flute. You have a choice of wood. 
The key of A, this is our most popular flute, great for beginners and smaller hands, although everyone can use and enjoy it.   The bore and size makes it easy to play while it still has a full resonating voice.  Made of walnut, flutes in walnut are bright and clear in sound.   This flute can be played as both a 5-hole or 6-hole flute.  It has 6 holes and comes with a leather tie that easily converts it into a 5-hole flute. When comfortable just remove the leather tie and experience the use of the 6-hole. 

Odell makes each Sparrow Hawk in Arizona from a solid piece of the finest wood (instead of gluing two halves together as is so common) eliminating splits or separation caused by moisture of the breath. Each flute is finished with three coats of a non-toxic hardening oil for durability and clarity of sound, and it is precision-tuned so that it will blend perfectly with other instruments.

DVD Continuing Your Flute Journey
This is the most advanced DVD we have and is for those of us who have been playing the flute for some time. It seems we are always seeking new ways to express our flute-playing style. 
Many years of teaching advanced classes have taught us that it’s difficult to second guess the next step for most individuals. For this reason, we have provided a wide range of topics in this new instructional project that will help most everyone take that next step in their personal flute journey.

Introduction
Tablature
Playing With Others
Creating Songs
Basic Theory
Melody Structure

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 plastic 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.
