Meg York has played global music for 30 years. She received a Performance Degree in Classical Clarinet Performance and Flamenco from University of New Mexico in the 1990's where she accompanied Eva Encinias-Sandoval dance classes and toured with Pablo Rodarte's Dance Espana,  She plays in classical orchestra, jazz bands, circus and music theater ensemble, but her real love is Eastern modal classical music. 

Currently she performs and teaches workshops across the United States, Mexico and Turkey, embodying musical styles ranging from Turkish clarinet to Classical Arabic to ancient Persian. 

She applies Western pedagogy to her workshops, creating a safe, inquisitive, and fun way to get more comfortable with live world music interaction.
