2019 Workshop Program

The following is the list of workshops for the 2019 Native Rhythms Festival. All of these workshops are free, except as noted where a nominal fee is charged to cover the cost of materials the attendee will take away from the workshop. All of these workshops have limited enrollment (most limited by the space in the workshop tent). Early (on-line) registration is strongly encouraged.

 


Workshop registration is now closed!


Workshop Registration

Use the form at the bottom of this page for advanced registration for individual workshops. Seats in all workshops will be allocated on a first-come/first-serve basis, beginning with advanced registration from this page. Any remaining seats (not allocated by advanced registration) will be available for on-site registration on a first-come/first-serve basis at the workshop check-in tent. Once all available seats have been allocated, a waiting list will be established for each workshop.

When registering, please limit your selections to 5 workshops that you actually plan to attend. PLEASE do not register for workshops that you "might" want to attend. It's not fair to others if workshops reach their stated capacity only because numerous people who aren't sure they will attend have registered, and others who really want to attend are blocked from registering. If you have more than 5 workshops that you want to attend, list those additional workshops in the "comments" field on the form and you will be placed on the waiting list for them.

Upon receipt of the on-line registration form, our workshop registrar will send an e-mail to you to confirm your registration or indicate your position on the waiting list. That confirmation message will come from the e-mail address NRFconf@gmail.com. Nothing else will be accepted as confirmation of your registration. The automated response that is generated when your form is transmitted to us does not constitute confirmation of your registration. You may wish to print out your confirmation e-mail message from NRFconf@gmail.com when it arrives, and bring it with you to the festival. 

In the past, some of our flute enthusiasts have registered for all workshops, including those they did not actually plan to attend. This prevented people wanting to attend those workshops from registering. We ask all to please be respectful of others. Do not sign up for workshops that you don't definitely plan to attend.

On-line advanced registration will open when the workshop schedule is published and closes at the end of the day on Monday, November 4, 2019. A workshop check-in tent will be set at the entrance to the large workshop tent. On-site check-in for those who pre-register on-line is required, with empty seats filled at the check-in tent on a first-come/first-serve basis. A waiting list will be maintained when the workshop capacity is reached.

All advanced (pre-registered here) registrants must check-in at the workshop check-in tent upon arrival at the festival on the day of their workshops to confirm their presence and their plan to participate in the workshops for which they have registered. Seats not confirmed in this manner will be reopened and made available to those on the waiting list.

Although most of the workshops are designated as "space available" and likely will be able to accommodate all who wish to participate, we request that those who wish to participate in them submit an advanced registration form below so that we will have an idea of the number of people to expect and can plan accordingly.

"I love sharing my art and mostly 'self-taught' skills with anyone who wishes to learn. I find great joy in seeing the excitement of someone who has just learned how to do something new that I have taught them.  It fills my heart and spirit with great satisfaction of knowing traditional skills and crafting will continue on for generations.  

In my adult life I have overcome many obstacles to reach my goals in learning and sharing."

Workshop tent, main festival grounds

Musicians in general, and flute players in particular, often want to record their music. We do this for a variety of reasons, ranging from having something to evaluate your own playing to producing something that can be shared with friends, or even sold commercially. It wasn't that long ago that personally recorded performances were limited in both sophistication and quality. Doing anything more than just capturing a live performance on a cassette recorder required expensive equipment and significant technical skills. That has all changed with the advent of relatively powerful personal computers and inexpensive, good quality audio equipment. 

One key element of a modern home recording studio is the software that runs on that personal computer, the centerpiece of which is the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software. While professional studios tend to use DAW software costing many hundreds to thousands of dollars, there are low cost, and even free, DAW packages that allow a home recording studio to be set up with a cost within the reach of almost everyone. One such free DAW program is call Audacity, put out by SourceForge, an "open source" software sharing organization where programmers pool their talents in creating high quality programs for free public distribution and use.

This workshop picks up where last year's workshop stopped. (The presenter's Your Home Recording Studio book covering last year's workshop material will be available for purchase.) This year will cover specific DAW operations used in processing and mixing recorded tracks, including:

Individual Track Processing
Initial "pre-processing" (noise reduction and normalization of raw audio
-  Comping (merging segments from multiple tracks to a composite track
-  Pitch correction (using a pitch correction program called Melodyne)

Mixing Multiple Tracks
-  Making an instrument sound fuller with multiple tracks of it
-  3 techniques to balance track volumes
-  Placing the track in 3-D space  (left/right, front/back)
-  Effects:  Reverb, Delay, and Echo
-  EQ  (frequency equalization)
-  Limiters and
Compressors

Because much material will be covered in the two hours allocated for this workshop, the presentation will be fast paced. To allow attendees to pay attention to the presentation and not get distracted by taking notes, copies of the PowerPoint slides will be available at no charge following the festival for attendees requesting them. This book that covers the materials from last year's workshop will be available at the workshop or at the Turtle Mound Flutes booth.

John Ellis has been playing and singing traditional European/American folk music for over 50 years. Appearing under the stage name Johnny Kee, he added the Native American Flute to his multi-instrument repertoire over ten years ago, and from that came his interest in playing the flute in his folk music performances (including old hymns, spirituals, and gospel songs) . Although he has purchased some commercial software packages, he has predominantly used Audacity for all his recording. His CD "Echoes From The Trail", released in October, 2018, used Audacity exclusively for effects and mixing, and includes multiple tracks of flutes (solo and duet), guitars, banjo, autoharp, drums, rattles, and harmonious vocals. Graduates of previous offerings of the basic workshop have said that they have used the lessons from the workshop and book to undertake their own recordings. Some of those recordings will be available at this year's Native Rhythms.


Title:
Reading Nakai Tablature

Leader: Jamie Empert  (2018 NRF Paula Ellis Memorial Flute Players' Competition winner)
Fee: Free
Scheduled time:
Saturday, 10:00-11:00am.
Program Length: 
1 hour  
Location:
 Workshop tent, main festival grounds
Class Size: 
Space available

Have you ever wanted to play written music on your Native American Flute but don’t know how to begin? Or have you ever wanted to write any of your own songs into sheet music form without drawing flute pictorials with finger hole representations? Learning to read Nakai Tablature may open some musical adventures for you that you didn’t expect. In this workshop, you will gain an understanding of how Nakai Tablature works so that you can begin to play written music. If you have no experience reading music on a staff in western style notation, don’t worry. We’ll go over the basics of what all of these symbols and notes mean too.  And since this can be a lot to learn in just a one hour workshop, you’ll go home with some great resources that will help you to continue your learning and practicing at home. Bring your flute (preferably an “A” flute, but not necessary) so we can all practice together.

On a personal note, I love playing my flute from the heart with no boundaries or structure; however, as a trained musician, when I discovered Nakai Tablature and some of the beautiful written music that exists, it opened up a whole new level of excitement in my playing. For example, I played some written Christmas duets with another flute player and it allowed me to experience harmonies and the beauty of the flute in a different way. Also, for my upcoming album, I have used Finale to write all of my music in Nakai Tablature. Since I am a visual learner, it tends to help my brain organize my music when it is down on paper. As a result,I have become an advocate of learning the tablature for those who are interested.


Title: Guided Ancestral Meditation
Leader: Randy Granger
Fee: Free
Scheduled time:
Sunday, 9:00-9:45am.
Program Length: 45 minutes
Location: Workshop tent, main festival grounds

Title: Handmade Flute Making Demonstration
Leader: Hawk Henries
Fee: Free
Scheduled time: On-going all weekend.
Program Length: N/A
Location: Hawk's booth.
Class Size: N/A

Hawk will share how he builds flutes out of a solid piece of wood using only hand tools and fire.

Join us for a unique opportunity to meet Nipmuc flute maker and musician, Hawk Henries. Hawk has been creating futes using only hand tools and fire for 30 years! Are you curious about how they are made? Hawk will offer a demonstration of the process, technique, and tools used. You're even welcome to try your hand at various steps!


Title:30 Years of Experience with Hawk Henries
Leader: Hawk Henries
Fee: Free
Scheduled time: 
Saturday, 11:00am-12:00noon.
Program Length: 1 hour.
Location: Workshop tent, main festival grounds
Class Size: Space available

This is an informal workshop allowing participants to ask questions and explore a variety of different topics from details about how to build a handmade flute, flute playing techniques, breath techniques, presentation and storytelling tips to Native culture and more. He will share some of his stories, thoughts, and life lessons that have come from his relationship with the flute. He will also have a variety of other flutes on hand to explore and discuss. When Hawk first began making flutes 30 years ago, there were only a handful of flute makers. This, along with his Native heritage, gives Hawk a unique perspective about the flute and Life in general.
 

Over time, I've developed a deep sense of relationship with, and responsibility to, the flute and its power to remind us of our Sacredness and our interconnection with everything in Creation. I love to use music to try to inspire understanding and awareness. I think of instruments as important tools that can open doors, they do work. They voice certain tones, and combinations of tones, that create vibrations that affect us physically. They create a space of openness or, at least, a willingness to be in that moment.

When the flute is created or when I work with the flute, it’s my intention to try to articulate these ideas. To use the flute is my way of remembering our place as a part of everything else in nature and honoring our common source of Life, while celebrating our individual and cultural differences. To me, the greatest gift of the flute is its power as a tool for prayer and the healing that comes from remembering. ~ Hawk

 


Title:
Becoming More Emotive with Your Native American Flute Playing
Leader: Jonny Lipford
Fee: Free
Scheduled time:
Friday, 11:00am-12:00noon.
Program Length: 1 hour
Location: Workshop tent, main festival grounds
Class Size: Space available

Have you ever listened to a song and immediately reacted in chill bumps or tears? Or how about when you hear a song that commonly moves you, but this time it didn’t? Why is that?

Emoting or Emotional Connection

Deciding “what” to play is an important factor in music, of course; but an even larger component to that is “how” you play it!  Let’s work together and unravel ways that you can be more emotive in your flute playing to connect to the listener–whether you’re just playing from the heart, or you’ve rehearsed a song a hundred times.

Bring any Native American-style flute with you. Key does not matter, but please make sure that it is well tuned.

Note: There will be a short segment towards the end of the workshop for a brief Q&A. If your concern is more in-depth, consider booking a private, in-person, lesson with me while at Native Rhythms Festival! Email: info@jonnylipfordmusic.com


Title: The Things I Never Knew, I Never Knew

Jonny Lipford
Fee: Free
Scheduled time:
Saturday, 12:30-1:30pm.
Program Length: 1 hour
Location:
 Workshop tent, main festival grounds

Instead of focusing on the “what not to do” with your flute, we are going to explore some odd, unusual and different sounds that you can make with your Native American flute to add new interest to your flute playing!  Please come with an open and curious mind as we explore these cool sound effects and extracurricular ideas!

Bring any Native American-style flute with you. Key does not matter.

.5 hour

 Workshop tent, main festival grounds
Class Size:
 Space available

An historical presentation of the role that the Navajo Code Talkers played in World War II through the display of artifacts and a slide show presentation. While the allies were able to break the most secure codes of the Axis powers, The code talkers "code" was never broken.

U.S. Marine Commanders initially opposed the idea of using the Native American language again in the war (they had been used in WW I), but later agreed to a test mockup trial run for secret battle intel to be sent via NCT vs the more common cryptography. A group of (30) Navajos were initially recruited and after a sucessful test, more were authorized. After testing, 29 remained, which now are commonly referred to as the First 29.

The code was created. During the first two days during the Battle of Iwo Jima, 800 message were sent, and all were flawlessly received. Where the cryptography machines sometimes took 25-30 minutes or longer to decipher its message, the NCT accomplished this within minutes. A total of 400 NCT were used during WWII and less than 11 survive today.  

In search of a way to help honor first responders and military personnel, the Founder-CEO of Families of the Shield, John A. Pasko, a (Ret.) Police Officer, located one of the few remaining United States Marine WWII Navajo Code Talkers (NCT), from Keyenta, Arizona. Pfc. Samuel Tom Holiday and members of his family agreed to come to Florida to participate in the show and was also honored by U.S. Congressman Bill Posey. Holiday received a Special Certificate of Congressional Recognition for his contributions to our country during WWII.

As time went on, both families became friends and John was invited out to Window Rock, Arizona, to attend as a guest of the Holiday family, to the National Code Talkers Day; August 14th by Helena Begaii, (Samuels daughter).  Helena introduced John to the Navajo Nations President Russell Begaye and VP Jonathan Nez and many other high ranking dignitaries.
