NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE PLAYER - TUCSON
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, broker, make, and repair flutes. I offer instruction, attend multiple flute circles, and have written 2 flute books. And I perform locally now and then.
Like I said, I'm not obsessed... Right?
