Spice It Up!

Embellishments help spice things up and give us options in how we want to sound while playing and sharing music. In this e-course for the Native American flute, I break down thirty embellishments ranging from the simplest to the most advanced––even the nuances in these techniques.

The course is well organized with video and text lessons and two quizzes where you'll hear a technique and try to answer it correctly! This is a clear and exceptional way to learn and implement all these techniques.

The Achieving Embellishments course comprises 13 lessons and an accompanying printable guide for you to reference and work through. Once you enroll in the course, you'll have access forever and can work at your own speed.

He has skillfully broken down thirty techniques into easy-to-follow steps to achieve greater depth and richness in sound as you develop your skills on the Native American flute.

Really great

Albert Montano

So much information! Taking it really slow.

Prefer not to say
amazing teacher!

Jonny is an amazing teacher and definitely the one for me! He explains things with such clarity and doesn't make you feel stupid when he shows you how to do things on your flute. I've taken a similar "workshop" with another high level instructor and it doesn't stack up anywhere close to what Jonny has put together. JL is the real deal. BRAVO JONNY!

Great course!

I'm really loving this course and all the different sounds that I can do with my flute now. I feel like I sound more polished with these things. Thanks Johnny!
