I firmly believe that any motivated and intelligent person can learn music, regardless of age, ethnicity or musical background, provided they have good lessons and practice what they are taught.
If you would like me to give you flute lessons, please fill out the application form at the bottom of this page. I expect students to practice daily for a minimum of 90 minutes, and preferably at least two hours per day.
Please go subscribe to my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/indianflutemusic to get free lessons and a whole lot more.

"Amazing work done by Dr Kerry Kriger. It is informative and interesting for students who are keen to learn bamboo flute. This is a great method and absolutely fantastic tutorial. May we have many more flutists with the help of Dr Kriger.
All the very best,

Find out where I am currently and perhaps we can meet in-person.
"Thanks again. Finally I find a teacher that I was looking for. I'm new to the bansuri and being a flute maker this way of playing the flute is new for me." -- Roland Gonzales
I can give online lessons via Skype or Gmail video chat, which enables us to use free audio and video. I find Gmail works better. For either, you would need to download and install them, as well as test them on a friend before we get started. If your computer does not have a good mic/speaker system, I suggest getting a USB headset.
Skype: download and install it. Call a friend who has skype. Enable video. Can you see them? Can you hear them? Can they see you? Can they hear you? If not, there is a problem.
Gmail: Get a free gmail account. Chat with a friend. Click the video button in the chat box. Install the video software. Can you see them? Can you hear them? Can they see you? Can they hear you? If not, there is a problem.

You need to have a decent bansuri and it should be in the same pitch as one that I have. Here are the flutes I have (based on Sa, which is the first three holes closed):
F (mine is actually sharp, approximately F-448)
If you don;t know the pitch of your flute, hold three holes down and blow to get Sa...hold it steady and use your digital tuner to tell you what pitch flute you have.
Lessons are $50 per hour. You will need to be able to pay via Paypal, check, wire transfer, Western Union or a money order that works in American banks.
Satisfaction Guaranteed: if you're not pleased with the first lesson, you do not have to pay.
Thanks for your interest!
My 203-page book "Compositions for Bansuri" will soon be available. It is an invaluable learning tool for anybody interested in the bansuri!
Let me know if you want lessons for any type of hand drum.
"My son is loving it! He has walked every inch of the house drumming. up the stairs, down the stairs, on the couch, in the kitchen and around the dining room! it's great to see this!"
