The New School

55 W 13th Street, 5th Floor (The Jazz Performance Space)


Presented by World Music Institute in collaboration with the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School.


In this Native American flute making workshop, you will learn first hand what makes a Native American flute so unique. Each participant will choose the wood they want to use for their flute and you will have the chance to search, experiment, and discover which piece to attach to your flute to give it a unique voice. I will teach you how to tune your flute and you will also have time to decorate your instrument using a beading method that's common amongst the indigenous Wixaritari people of western Mexico. And of course, we'll play a bit too!


Workshop led by Jay Loomis. Check out photos from previous workshops.
