      Sparrow Hawk Native American Style Flute

      The Sparrow Hawk is wonderful all around flute. It is easy to play and is ideal for first time flute players and those with smaller hands. The Sparrow Hawk is a traditional Native American style flute made from domestic aromatic cedar, a softwood. The flute is sealed with non-toxic oils which give it a warm, resonant and full voice.

      Sparrow Hawk Native American Style Flute

      The Sparrow Hawk flute is tuned in the key of "A" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C". This is the same tuning as our Reverie Harp!

      This is a 6-hole flute, but the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) is covered with a leather tie, giving the option to use it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute.

      This Sparrow Hawk flute is 19 inches (48 cm) long.

      The fingering chart at left shows you how to play the C Pentatonic Scale. This is the same scale that is used on our Reverie Harp so it is pretty straight forward if you want to play these two instruments together.

      The black holes indicate they are to be covered with your finger. Use the fingers on your left hand to cover the two holes above the leather tie and the fingers on your right and to cover the bottom three holes.

      So - to play the note 'G' - place your index finger over the top hole. Blow gently through the mouth piece and experiment with air pressure until you create a pleasing tone. Try to find the sweet spot.

      Lovely and Haunting Sounds
      This instrument produces lovely and haunting sounds. I bought the Sparrow Hawk version because it came with instructions and a case for the instrument. I would encourage this unless you have had previous experience with this instrument. The instruction book is easy to follow and well written. Like any other instrument practice, practice, practice. Visually the flute is beautifully made and has a lovely finish which I am sure will enhance its life. I am so glad I made this purchase!
