Ney (Reed Flute) classes

The Rumi Dialogue Club at Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh Dialogue Foundation are offering "Ney (Reed Flute) Classes" for everyone interested. The classes will be given by a musician who plays on Ney for
8 years.

Ney is a very old eastern instrument which has been used since BC 5000.
Its sound is known to be the most similar to the human sound among the wind instruments. Ney also has a significant place as a symbol in Sufi teaching, especially in Rumi's writings, and in the Whirling Dervishes Ceremony.

As a tradition, how to play on Ney is not taught for money. The only cost expected is the responsibility of teaching how to play on Ney, as much as you can, if someone wants to learn. With this activity, we will try to continue this tradition.

WHERE: Carnegie Mellon University
WHEN: Every Friday at 6:30pm starting on February 29
FEE: Free
