ABOUT ME

IMG_1343.jpg

My wife says I'm obsessed with the Native Flute.  I say "I'm enthusiastic".  I suppose it's a matter of perspective.  It's true that I do spend a significant amount of time in flute-related activities and thoughts, but I manage to function in other areas too.  So that's not obsessed...  Right?

I play and record music.  I collect and broker flutes.  I make and sell Native American style flutes.  I offer instruction and introductory group  workshops.  I have written 2 flute books: one on making, and one on playing.  And I attend multiple flute circles routinely.  

Like I said, I'm not obsessed... Right?

I don't know how they discovered me, but this is an interview by an Italian blog site.   

It's my favorite of the interviews/articles.
