WMI Plus: Native American Flute Workshop - presented in collaboration with the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music

School of Jazz Performance Space, Room I531, Arnhold Hall
General Public 

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. You will learn 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. The class will play a bit too!

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