Learn to play overtone flutes Fujara and Koncovka in America

You have seen fujara pictures, you’ve heard it’s voice, maybe you even have a fujara or koncovka already at home, now is the time you find out that you could have the tremendous experience to play it yourselves!
Fujara is an amazing music instrument that is easy to play (shepherds without any music education could play it). It has only three side holes, while the other Slovak instrument, the koncovka, has no side holes at all. Still, you might be surprised how many melodies and improvisations are possible to be played on both instruments.
You might also be surprised to learn that the best fujara course is right here in the USA!
In fact, it is the only one in the entire Western Hemisphere; such a program is not available even in Slovakia!
The popular week-long course is actually part of the summer program Common Ground on the Hill, at beautiful campus of McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland.
Now in its eight year, the 2018 course will be a the last week of June, 6/25 - 6/29.
Students drive and fly here from many states to learn to play both fujara and koncovka, we have fun and on the last day of the course, students can appear playing on stage, as we did in past years. Many say, that the week full of music, jamming and evening concerts was the best vacation of their life and I say that too and I am looking forward very much to it!
