Eliza Marshall (Ranagri) has travelled extensively and played to the highest level at many international venues. Take an exotic break in the comfort of The Met, working on African tunes collected by Eliza that suit the characteristics of the whistle.

The workshop will be less about technique and not specifically tune focused. It is more a musical introduction to the possibilities of improvisation with world music as a source and the unusual techniques this allows. Expect some infectious rhythms, unforgettable melodies and engaging ensemble work… and some unique material to add to your repertoire!

Intermediate Whistle. Suitable for whistle and flute players of intermediate level and above.
