À propos de l'auteur (2005)

John Vames has been playing and teaching music professionally for the last 35 years. The focus of his teaching is not only to develop professional musicians but also to show students how to create and enjoy music for the enrichment of their own lives. With his help hundreds of people of all ages have learned to play clarinet, sax transverse flute, Native American Flute, Jazz and Classical piano. His friendship with the Native American Flute began in 1995 while vacationing in Santa Fe. As an educator he realized how easy it was for almost anyone to play. Unlike piano or guitar that take years of study, this instrument could be mastered in a short time. What followed was his initiation of Flute classes at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Arizona and the first 16 week credited program for Native American Flute on a Community College level. In 2003 was the publication of his book, The Native Flute: Understanding the Gift, an interactive guide for learning to play. In February 2005, his 2nd book Song for Koko:Jazz for Native American Flute was presented for the advanced player.
