Welcome to the world of flute history. This site contains
information and resources for learning about the transverse
flute and flute-playing in Western Europe and America
over the past 800 years. It's designed for players of
the modern instrument as well as earlier types, such
as renaissance and baroque flutes.
You can find pages about people, instruments, periods,
and music in the various sections in the navigation
column at left. The site contains links to further resources
on the internet, and in books and recordings in our
shopping area. A good place to start is the ONE-MINUTE
TOUR, followed by a trip through the TIMELINES.
