Learn to play the Suling!
In this small and intimate online class with me, Suzanne, you will learn to play this sweet bamboo flute from Indonesia. Once you register, I will send you your very own custom made suling! It is an easy-to-learn beautiful bamboo fipple flute. With only four finger holes, the flute plays in the gorgeous West Javanese pentatonic scale (Sunda) and plays over two octaves!
The fingerings are very simple and the tone is easy to create. It’s a sweet yet powerful little flute!
I have these sulings custom made in Bali by a master flute maker. I have them made to a 440 pitch so that they can be played with western instruments (hard to find this!). They are sturdy and very well made. Professional quality, not a tourist’s flute. https://mysticjourney.net/flutes. Includes hand made case. Easy to play, affordable, a great addition to your world flute collection! Small sulings are 13". Pitches from bottom are BCDF#G.
