Rona Yellow Robe Rona Yellow Robe

Rona Yellow Robe will be teaching the “Beginners” workshop this year. She will be under the guidance of her own experience of 10 years of learning and playing and still learning, as well as by John Vames' guide, The Native American Flute, Understanding the Gift. Those who would like to take on this workshop will have a very gentle, fun-loving experience as you learn Finger Control, Breath Control, Knowing your flute, Basic Notes, and Embellishments such as tonguing and slurring, and much more. I am looking forward to meeting my students with song, and being a part of the Zion Canyon Flute School. It means a lot to me to pass on the gifts that have been passed on to me by teachers that I hold with highest honor and respect.
