SomeAre Solstice Flute Testimonies               

"The tranquil and serene sounds of Janina's Native American Flutes brought the peace and calmness of the Summer Solstice to a heightened level. Definitely a unique musical inclusion for that special occasion."
Daisy/Ground with Sound - June 2013


“John and Janina have such peaceful auras about them and their music is soothing enough to be background music, but powerful enough to hold you, no matter what the activity. This is the most calming music I have ever heard. I highly recommend it!”

Janina, I am so proud of all of the work you have done spreading the joy of the flute. I hope you realize it is only happening because you continue to inspire not only your students but the adults you work with. They are picking up on your energy and enthusiasm. It is indeed contagious!

" Janina's flutes created a magical backdrop for our yoga class. Students were nurtured by sounds that invited peace and deep relaxation. Music was a perfect complement to restorative yoga class. Thanks Janina!"

I have recently had the pleasure of working alongside Janina Carlstad with a group of students in the grade 5 and 6 fine arts classes.  In these classes, each of us constructed and decorated a Northern Spirit Native American flute.  The students were very enthused and excited about this project and just couldn’t wait to learn to play their flutes.  Over a period of time, Janina taught the students a number of songs.  Janina then registered the students in the spring Grande Prairie and Area Encana Music Festival to play a song of their choice, some of whom composed their own music.  This was the first time ever that the Native American flute was played in this particular music festival, and the adjudicator was fascinated in the music and each student’s beautifully decorated flute.  This entire journey was truly an amazing experience which Janina took us through.
