_Hello, my name is Craig Paterson and I am a professional instrument
maker and musician based on the West coast of British Columbia.
a flutemaker I am passionately committed to creating the finest
instruments, infused with love and healing intention. The flutes I create
are designed to have the clearest voice and cleanest response, and are
perfect for beginner and professional alike. A Temple Wind Flute is an
investment in your highest health and well-being.
I have been
fascinated with music since birth and have been playing music all of my
life. Eight years ago I became deeply aware of the restorative power of
sound, and have devoted myself to the exploration and study of music as
a healing tool. This has led me on a magical journey, studying ancient
instruments from around the world including the didjeridu, african hand
drums, mbira, and flutes.
I have had the honour of studying with
many masters, and playing with many incredible musicians. I have played
in many venues and settings including concerts, music festivals,
retreats,ecstatic dance classes, ceremonies, and group and private sound
healing sessions. My musical output has crossed the spectrum from
crafting deep meditative soundscapes to rocking dance floors with wild
tribal fusion music.
My journey with the Native American flute
started when I heard a drone flute for the first time. The sound moved
me in way that was so deep and profound it is difficult to describe.
Hearing that sound opened something in my soul.
It wasn't long
after that I decided to try to make a flute for myself. That has led to
my becoming a full-time flutemaker, and to passionately creating the
very best instruments infused with love and intention.
believe that music can bring peace and wellness to ourselves, those
around us, and our environment, and I feel very blessed to be a channel
for that kind of healing.
