Rommy Verlaan
Maker of Native American-style Flutes

MAY 02, 2022 – Announcement from Rommy’s family:

It is with heavy hearts we share that our beloved Rommy has passed away. Her husband Zak Stolk will be carrying on creating Heart Song flutes and asks that all inquiries about flute purchases be sent directly to We love you, Rommy, and know that your love and spirit will be carried on by all those who knew you and in the sound of a flute. 


Heart Song, Native American Style Flutes have been created on the shores of Lake Cowichan, on Vancouver Island British Columbia, Canada, since 2006.

Heart Song Flutes are sold at Local Farmers Markets and craft fairs on Vancouver Island, Craft Fairs on Mainland BC, and via the internet, around the globe.

Rommy at Heart Song Flutes offers lessons on how to play these wonderful instruments.   She does one on one lessons, as well as group workshops. Lessons and workshops are held outside among the trees and shores of Lake Cowichan, indoors by an open fireplace, and in community halls and parks on Vancouver Island.   Check the “Workshop” page for dates and details.

I hope their unique, delicate and haunting sounds, along with Zak Stolk’s Old World style craftsmanship, will attract you to pick one up, and play your own song, from the heart, for years to come.
