Greetings!
I am Leo Aguirre, I once was a locksmith because I loved detail.  I ran a small paper and sowed leather crafts. I am a musician because I love music. One day I became Erik the flutemaker's  apprentice and  8 years went by learning the secrets of the flute trade.
Presently I am Erik's Associate

Leo

and his webmaster video and photographer and master carver. With Erik's blessing, I am providing my own customers with a diversity of bamboo flutes with our excellent bamboo harvested and cured in Florida.

Bamboo "Kiowa Style" Flute

This Bamboo Flute is easy to play
Soft sensitive tones, a pentatonic scale, restful and creative, anything you do sounds lovely.
Easy to play! Great for beginners! Just blow softly into the top hole like a recorder.

The vertically held Kiowa is just placed against the lips and you blow softly. The hard work inside the flute makes this an easy flute to play.
This is an easy flute to learn not only because of the blowing but the scale is pentatonic like the black keys on the piano. Anything you do sounds good.

How to play:
1. Apply a bit more pressure over the holes to make sure they are sealed well.
2. Don't blow, just breathe into the flute from deep.
3. Use the nose as a valve, so too much air is not passing into the flute.
4.The native flute players used to say they had to blow so softly that it drew anger out of them.
5. Find the soft, sweet spot, and in a short time you will be able to find the edge where you can blow harder from that foundational place.
 Lots of beginners just blow harder because they want to express all their creative passion into the flute and do overkill on the air pressure.


The Kiowa Love Flute is blown into straight and is easy like a penny whistle or a recorder, just blow.

Construction

The Native American flute Style is the first flute in the world constructed with two air chambers - there is a wall inside the flute between the top (slow) air chamber and the bottom chamber which has the whistle and finger holes. The top chamber also serves as a secondary resonator, which gives the flute its distinctive sound. There is a hole at the bottom of the "slow" air chamber and a (generally) square hole at the top of the playing chamber. A block (or "fetish") is tied on top of the flute. In a plains flute, a spacer is added or a channel is carved into the block itself to form a thin, flat air stream for the whistle hole (or "window"). In contrast, a woodlands flute has the channel carved into the top of the flute, allowing for a less reedy sound.

The "traditional" Native American flute was constructed using measurements based on the body - the length of the flute would be the distance from armpit to wrist, the length of the top air chamber would be one fist-width, the distance from the whistle to the first hole also a fist-width, the distance between holes would be one thumb-width, and the distance from the last hole to the end would generally be one fist-width.
