Christmas Carols for the Native American Flute

Dick Claassen,

Christmas Carols for the Native American Flute
After the resounding success of "Celebrate the Native American Flute"--Dick Claassen's first method book on how to play the Native American flute--Dick has followed up this success with another book--this time a book on Christmas carols. It's titled, "Christmas Carols for the Native American Flute". Although the title for this kind of book might be predictable, the inside of the book is not. Dick's flute instruction books are not a mass of gobbledygook meant for the seasoned musician. The books, including this one, are laid out in a clear and simple way so that even someone who has no music background whatsoever can successfully master the material, and have a lot of fun doing it. Although the included companion book, "Campfire Flute", helps one start playing the flute in the Native American way, (a basic treatment of the NA flute's native pentatonic scale), the Christmas carol book has some very specific introductory material that will quickly help beginning players navigate through the rules of the author's own particular tablature notation. It's easy, it's fun, and it's fast. Do you want to be a resounding hit at that next Christmas party? Learn a few carols and entertain your guests. Do you want to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas? Find a quiet place and play a few carols. Would you like to meditate on Christmas--get deeper into the Christmas experience? Quietly play a carol or two in your safe place of meditation, then begin your regular meditation period. When you're finished, end your session by softly playing another carol. This is what this particular book offers the reader: a place to go; a place to reflect; a place to have fun. There is real magic in the flute, and Christmas carols--the sacred music that belongs to us all, not to Christians alone--will take us to a place of peace and joy. ADDED FEATURES: Along with the 25 carols in this book are three articles that will enlighten and entertain you. Rev. Dr. Kendra Vaughan Hovey, a minister of the Wiccan church, has written an interesting article about how early beliefs of those who worship nature intertwines with the holidays of the Christian faith. C.S. Fuqua, author, musician and flute builder gives us an interesting look into the history of the Native American flute. And finally, Dick Claassen, the author of "Christmas Carols for the Native American Flute", shares some of his experiences as a long-time music teacher. Included with each carol is a short history of who wrote it, lyrics, and 'notes' on how best to approach playing a particular carol.
