“Jonny has created perfect go-to online courses to learn to play NAF! These courses are well-structured with step-by-step instructional videos in which he breaks down concepts that even a novice can understand. He knows how to teach and create content that is easy to digest for those (like me) who have no background in music.”

“I am so glad I found the Beginning Your Journey course soon after purchasing my first flute. The course is packed with quality content that had me playing, caring for, and enjoying my flute quickly. The lessons are broken down into short sessions so it’s easy to find time for one or more. Highly recommended!”

You have questions? We have answers.

  • What is the difference between Horizons Flute School and Horizons+?

    Horizons Flute School is the name for Jonny’s teaching platform which houses all the learning resources. Horizons+ is our low-cost, monthly membership plan that gives you access to many of the courses and other learning opportunities. There is also an option to purchase courses individually outside of the membership.

  • If I cancel my membership, do I still have access to courses?

    If you cancel your membership, you will lose access to courses, the private community, 2x/mo. lessons and any perks. However, if you purchased a course outside of the membership, you will keep access to that course after your subscription lapses.

  • What if I'm not satisfied with this membership?

    We want your experience here to be a pleasant one. If you aren't happy with your membership you may cancel at any time. Please keep in mind that there are no refunds given for the membership or any of our digital products.

  • Do I need to sign up again since the name of the school changed?

    All accounts that were created under the original Native Flute Academy have been transferred to Horizons Flute School. There’s no need to create a new login. Whichever courses you had in the Native Flute Academy, you will also have in Horizons Flute School. This does not include access to Horizons+, which is our membership option. You can enroll in Horizons+ and start reaping the many benefits offered in that program.
