About Us A growing interest in Native American flute playing has
spurred the formation of Native American flute circles all
over the United States. The Spring Cypress Flute Circle
is a small but growing group of flute players and flute
enthusiasts who get together to play Native American style
flutes. Most of the people who attend flute circles are
players of Native American style flutes, not Native Americans
who play flutes. Among our members, we also have some very
talented flute makers. Some members are beginning flute
players who want to learn to play. Some members are experienced
players who want to improve their playing and meet other
flute players. And than some people just come to have fun,
listen to the music, and to enjoy the warmth and friendship
that exists among our group. A 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!
The most important thing to always remember about the Native
American Flute is that it is an instrument of the heart.
Any song that comes from the heart is a beautiful song.

and to share it's beautiful haunting music.
WHAT DO WE DO AT A FLUTE CIRCLE?
We play our flutes.Playing is the best way to learn. Whether you are the
one playing or you are listening to someone else play, you
learn something new every time. At the flute circle you
will be playing in front of a group of very supportive and
appreciative friends. Sometimes we have an open mic which
allows you to play with special sound effects added.
We share stories about our
playing experiences.We also share new resource
information and information about flute makers we have discovered.
Occasionally we may have flute makers in attendance at our
meetings who will bring their flutes for us to try out and/or
On occasion we will have mini-concertsby visiting artist flute players.
We teach. We have
started 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.
You meet many interesting new people from various backgrounds
and ages. You gain confidence in your playing by playing
in front of an audience full of encouraging and supportive
1) Our goal at every meeting is
to present some type of educational or informational topic
about The Native American Flute which helps to make us better
flute players. This might include playing techniques, history,
or watching videos.
2) We want to be involved in the community.
It could be playing for local weekend festivals, at a retirement
home, or at a local church. We donate our time and playing
to charitable organizations at their fundraisers. If you
have a fundraiser or any charitable event coming up and
would like to have us come and play, please see our contact
