The Best Teacher!

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!

Jonny’s musical spirit will benefit you and your native flute playing. I find his courses incredibly helpful for playing my style, and I am forever grateful to Jonny for helping me grow in my native flute playing journey!

Getting Better and Better!

I feel like I got more than my money's worth from day one just from the courses offered then and it gets better and better as new classes are added. Aside from my favorite flutes, this was the best flute money I ever spent!

Hi, I'm Jonny Lipford.
I created Horizons Flute School for you...

I first heard the Native flute in a cartoon at only 13 years old. Later that year I received my first flute as a Christmas gift in 2002. Resources for learning didn't exist so my progress was hindered. This is why I'm so passionate about building great resources, courses and support for growing flute players.

I'm glad you're here, and I can't wait to get started with you on your flute journey!

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.
