No Experience Needed for Either Workshop! It’s Fun and Easy!
Children, adults and special needs groups across the country have enjoyed Maria's musical workshops. The inspiration for creating these workshops came from Maria’s audiences. They so enjoyed the beautiful sounds of her flutes that many asked if they could learn to play these magical instruments. Maria also provides these workshops for children at schools, museums, community centers, and for private parties.

You will leave the workshop knowing how to play the flute and with a flute to keep of your very own!

• Enhance Your Creative and Intuitive Abilities
• Increase Your Sense of Well-being while Reducing Stress
• Experience a Deeper Connection to Your Life force
• Receive Greater Self-Awareness and Peace of Mind
• Learn How to Create Healing Music

Everyone can be a musician. And, you will learn a beautiful form of self-expression that opens your heart while bringing you peace, joy, and fulfillment.

Maria's teaching methods inspire the inner child in all of us to come out and play! Definitely, the most fun I've ever experienced in a workshop setting.
LINDA ATNIP, AUTHOR"Miranda's Magic Garden"

Maria brings flutes from around the world into people’s lives in a very personal way that’s fun and easy, a gentle way that assures success at playing the flute very quickly.

Through playing flutes from Maria’s 100-piece world collection, you will learn an ancient tradition that provides many benefits: enhanced creativity, stress relief, and it’s a fun way to express yourself. Simple individual and group exercises and guided meditations make playing these flutes a sacred experience. Each flute has a unique voice that connects the player to Ancient Cultures.

Maria will also demonstrate her work as a musical intuitive by performing healing music, or “personal songs” for workshop participants. These workshops give people the means to speak the "universal language," while building a bridge to their next-door neighbors, the peoples of the world.

Flutes are provided in the “Flutes of the World” workshop. You may also bring your own flute. A Native American flute is included in the cost of the “Learn to Play the Native American Flute” workshop.
Workshops can be scheduled in 1-1/2 hour to full-day formats, as stand alone classes or as part of your existing workshop or conference.

Magical Trip
Around the World!

Students will receive instruction through LOTS of hands-on participation. They will be delighted by Maria’s colorful ethnic stories that show the common bond between world cultures. The children will learn about the uses of the flute and their particular importance to each culture. Maria’s dynamic presentations reinforce geography, cultural history and language arts curricula. Craft flutes are available for each child to decorate. This children’s art project augments the musical instruction.

The Healing Power of Music

Through this fun, experiential workshop you will learn how music can benefit your life physically, emotionally and spiritually.

“ I attended ‘Journey of the Soul - The Healing Power of Music.’ This was one of the most useful conference sessions that I had the privilege to be part of. Her work was so useful and well presented, that I asked for a personal session with Maria, which was even more powerful. I still use the tape of that session, as well as the CDs of Maria's amazing flute music."
