Just what I wanted
I ve been haunted by the sounds of the pan flute ever since I came back from a trip to the Andes. I hope I will be able to do justice to this beautiful instrument. It s masterfully constructed and has a lovely sound even though I m still learning how to play.

I am very excited to learn how to use the pipes!
I loved receiving my Andean pipes! They were contained in a lovely carrying case and the pipes themselves were meticulously cut and bound together. My only problem is that I do not know how to play them! I was able to get some soft notes out of them which was great, but I clearly need instruction. It would be wonderful if the very skilled artisan, Benito Tito, could put together a beginner?s guide to help someone like me get started. I would be very willing to pay extra for a beginner?s guide to using the pipes written by an expert like Benito Tito.
Each year at Christmas I look at the NOVICA catalog for gifts especially from Peru. I have no idea yet how this flute sounds BUT it looks elegant and hand made just the kind of gift I love to give.
