It was probably one of the first tutorials for the Nai. It is published by
There are better tutorials now though. By Costel Puscoiu and by Ulrich

Subject: [panflute-world] I need advice
my name is Sandra Hould and, i love the Naï
(what a surprise LOL). At home, i only have a small naï, a
Aulos flute. I know, it is not very good, but naï's here
are non existant, as much as in litterature as in the
instrument. Plus, i do not have the money to buy myselfe a
better pipe (plus, i don't know where to find a flute at a
good cost for me, little student in university).
I was wondering, could one of you please tell me what kind of
exercices i could do to work my mouth and lips. I feel that
my mouth and lips get tired easily and playing my naï is not enough.
I feel that i need to do exercices in order to blow better into my
For me, it is impossible to have a teacher here, there are
none. I have checked and there are no naï players in my
town except myselfe, so i have to learn all by myselfe.
Also, i was wondering if you guys could recomment to me some
litterature on the Naï.
Another thing, i know that Zamfir wrote a book, would you
please tell me the title, the publisher, the year of
production, the price in canadian dollers and where i can find the
book. I have a romanian friend who could translate it for me.
I know that these are alot of questions, and i know that i will find
the answers with you guys.
I thank you for your help.

Can i find these tutorials of Costel Puscoiu and Ulrich Herkenhoff
anywhere? I mean where is the best place for me to buy these. Are
they from the same publisher? I don't have a credit card, so buying
from the net can be difficult sometimes.
And do you know of Zamfir'S biography?
