Just what I wanted
I ve been haunted by the sounds of the pan flute ever since I came back from a trip to the Andes. I hope I will be able to do justice to this beautiful instrument. It s masterfully constructed and has a lovely sound even though I m still learning how to play.

I am very excited to learn how to use the pipes!
I loved receiving my Andean pipes! They were contained in a lovely carrying case and the pipes themselves were meticulously cut and bound together. My only problem is that I do not know how to play them! I was able to get some soft notes out of them which was great, but I clearly need instruction. It would be wonderful if the very skilled artisan, Benito Tito, could put together a beginner?s guide to help someone like me get started. I would be very willing to pay extra for a beginner?s guide to using the pipes written by an expert like Benito Tito.
Son loved this for Christmas. He was very impressed with the workmanship and it tunes and plays as expected. Now he just needs to find a way to display. Thank you!
