In addition to standard pentatonic Native flute, Cornell teaches other Native flutes including the rim-blown flutes (e.g. "Anasazi" and "Hopi" style) as well as other world flutes.

We can cover many aspects of flute playing and music creation, including:

  • Technique and tonal quality
  • Basic Native flute scale and alternate scales
  • Improvisation
  • Composition
  • Musical expression
  • Rim-blown Native flutes
    (e.g. "Anasazi / Hopi")

Lessons are scheduled for a time and date that is convenient for both you and Cornell. How frequently you have lessons is up to you. Possibilities are:

  • Recurring schedule (i.e. weekly, every other week, etc.)
  • Every once in a while as desired
  • A single lesson (e.g. to learn a new flute, get some ideas for your playing, finding new skills and techniques)
Contact Cornell now to schedule lessons.

What do you need for music lessons over Skype?
  • A computer with a camera, microphone, and speakers.
    While any speakers or microphone that work with your computer will be OK, ideally, using headphones during a lesson is helpful to control cross-talk and "cutting out". (Cornell uses a USB headset that combines headphones and microphone.)
  • Skype software (free version works fine).
  • Lighting in the room should be from in front of you so that your face and fingers are well-lit.
