Meg York has a Performance Degree from the University of New Mexico in Clarinet, Flute and Flamenco Accompaniment and thirty years experience.  She loves coaching ensembles of mixed instruments in styles ranging from Western Classical to Global Roots, from Percussion Ensembles to full orchestras. 

She uses rote learning, note reading, improvisation, and composition to make sure her students learn not only their instrument or how to sing, but also how to learn and how to play well with others. 

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.
