Congratulations Rich! This is very exciting news! I will look for your Northern Spirit flute at the start of the game on Sunday. I had the pleasure of making a flute with you at the National Orff Conference in Halifax in 2014. I came home with the beautiful instrument and my 9 year old daughter claimed it straight away. She has been teaching herself ever since and prefers your flute over the recorder she got in music class this year. :)


I hope you continue to share your special talents. Congratulations once again! - Jessica Foote, K-5 Music Teacher, Marystown, NL -

Everything arrived in great shape a few hours ago. I am quite amazed! I hoped the flutes would sound good, but I never hoped or expected they would sound THAT GOOD!! This is incredible! A flute I can play in the rain and in front of anyone and not feel like I'm giving up anything! How did you do this? You've just consigned a couple of nice and much more expensive wooden flutes to the "give away" drawer. THANK YOU!!

Northern Spirit Flutes are made from U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ABS plastic. The flute's unique design eliminates all of the difficult aspects of making Native American style flutes. 

My passion for the Native American Flute has grown over the years and I want to make it possible to share the beauty of this instrument with our young people. As a result I have created the Flutes4Kids program. You receive a substantial discount on your order of class sets of 25 or more Northern Spirit Flutes.

"I just wanted to let you know that I played my drone flute in church on Sunday and the reception from the congregation was phenomenal. Thank you for a great experience. In a few weeks, I will have a chance to play it at our flute circle." - Adolph

"My Northern Spirit Drone flute is expressive, functional and responsive. I especially like the fact that it's waterproof and not affected by temperatures as much as wooden flutes. I can take it with me on hikes and out in nature - something that I wouldn't necessarily feel comfortable doing with wooden flutes." Jonny Lipford

Wow! amazing flute!

I love the idea of plastic flutes. A flute I can enjoy anywhere anytime without worrying about having to baby it. I have been collecting various plastic Native american style flutes and I must comment that yours is so far superior! The tuning, dynamic range, stability of pitch, beauty and clarity of pitch are amazing. I have been totally spoiled by your Northern Spirit flute and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone as the ideal first flute and beyond as a keeper!


I am your loyal fan!

Sincerely, Liz Moore

Hello Rich,

Just wanted to confirm my order did arrive on the 18th and I've been playing it ever since. :) Thanks again for the premium product!


I'll be sure to recommend your services for anyone that's looking for a high quality and durable Native American Flute.

Thanks, Ian



"Hi there, I received my flute very quickly. I really commend you on the tone and simplicity of it. I am extremely happy with it and would recommend it to anyone. I will buy another from you whenever you make a different key. Also I am interested in trying out your drone flute sometime. Thanks so much!" - Joanne

"Your project flutes-for-kids rocks!" - Marina Nadir  


The flute that you so generously gave to me has been given to a very deserving at-risk teenager from a local native tribe.  I was doing an artist in residence program and this young man picked up the flute that I had been bringing with me and began to make incredible music with it.  This kid had been in a reserved shell for the entire program until he picked up that flute.  By the time he was done, another at risk teen had joined him in a duet with her singing.  Tears and joy were in full abundance.

It was immediately clear after that young man picked it up that that flute was now his.  

I just wanted to let you know that it found a deserving and permanent home.

"I had the honor of getting a phone call, one day, from Rich Dubé of Northern Spirit Flutes. He asked me if I would help him with designing flutes, he was working on, that are made entirely from U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ABS plastic and explained to me that it was for children, so that they would be able to learn how to make and play these wonderful instruments at a very affordable price. I could tell in his voice that Rich was extremely sincere and committed to this project. Having children learn about this instrument is very important to me as well, so I told him to ask away with any questions he may have had and I would be happy to help him however I could. Rich called me several times and sent me several design ideas via E-mail to look at and discuss. He purchased a flute from me so that he could visually see how I made my wood flutes. Rich got as close as possible (molds permitting), making a very doable design. These flutes play very well and are fantastic for children to learn on. I tip my hat to Richard for staying so dedicated and for spending hours and hours of his time and using his own money to finance this project for the kids.
Rich, you are a good man with a good spirit....."
