Full description
After you've successfully crafted this woodwind instrument, your instructor helps you practice a song. Take your flute home with you as a priceless souvenir.

After a convenient hotel pickup, arrive at the workshop to meet your local tour guide. Listen as he gives you an intro to the art of flute crafting and tells you a bit about the culture behind the instrument in the country. Then, set to work on the bamboo with the tools provided to you.

With thorough instructions and a demonstration, you carefully begin to carve the materials into a semblance of a flute. Poke holes in just the right places so that the flute makes a perfectly musical tune. Once you're satisfied with your project, you are taught a short song so you can impress your friends back at home.
