LOVED this class. Ami has orgnized things so there is not a moment wasted. I now have new skills for journaling that are going to change everything for me. I am really looking forward to learning the last piece of this program and then to move forward with what I'm sure will be amazing tools to work with.

Ami is an amazing Native American flute player and teacher. She really draws you into the program and goes deep into the learning. I love having classes with her I started with her in 2014 And I am fortunate to be training with her again.

I understand so much more then I never imagined. Much of my confusion is clearing, just have to practice, practice, practice...put the miles on to hear the sweetness that is possible.

This course was more than I expected. I don't consider myself to be that musical, but having picked up the Native American Flute in my 50s and found Ami as my instructor, I was curious about this other course she offered. The insightful part for me was that Ami combines her musical expertise and her experience and training in guided journaling to help uncover some things that can keep us from a full expression of our musical selves. An ah-ha for me came when I realized an early memory of my own was playing the piano by ear as a kid. It was fun for me and I was uninhibited…until an older neighbor boy made a comment to my parents that I was "entertaining the neighborhood." Our piano lived in the garage, my own little amphitheater. Once I realized that, my shy introverted self all but stopped playing. I'd never have thought of that as a possible influence when I picked up a flute 40 years later, enchanted by its soulful tones and connection to my home in the Southwest. But then I couldn't look past a pattern I'd missed, realizing that I was only practicing my flute in those stolen moments when even my very supportive husband wasn't home. You may not find me perched atop the Boynton canyon "entertaining the neighborhood" with my flute, but in bringing that old imprint into the light, I feel free of it should i choose to. All of that from just one of these lessons in this program. Come in with an open mind and heart and see what unfolds for you. Wherever you are on your journey and whatever role music may have in your life, I bet you'll walk away with a deeper understanding and greater appreciation for the layers of richness it adds to your world.

So happy that I took Amy's beginners NAF class. The first lesson made it worth my while and the rest were gravy. I successfully close the finger holes and no longer squeak or whistle my way when playing. Signed up for intermediate lessons. Thanks, Amy for your kind and thorough approach.

Cathie D. on March 27, 2022

This course with Ami gave us, not only a toolbox for organizing our music practice, but a complete and clear method to achieve our individual goals. This course left me feeling empowered and excited to move forward. Ami has amazing teaching skills. Every part of her plan builds on the previous one. I look forward to continuing with her structured plan. It's exciting to know you are in such capable hands. Cheers & gratitude to Ami !!!
