Anything to do with chromatic panpipes, panflutes, jazz panpipes, jazz panflutes, panpipe technique, Romanian nai, construction, tuning.

Experience in the area

32 years playing panpipes, 15 years playing wholetone (chromatic) panpipes, 8 years designing and making panpipes with 3D technology. 20 years developing a 50 years playing Jazz. My wholetone concept is amply explained on my website http://www.tuutflutes.com


As a pioneer in a field for which no courses have been offered, nothing relevant. I did receive tuition on Romanian Nai from Raluca Patuleanu. Apart from that I did languages at Oxford and SOAS London and can answer questions in French, Spanish among other languages.

With difficulty, slowly and probably not very in tune. But I have never owned one of these flutes. They seem to be undergoing something of a revival in Peru where quena makers are offering them. Why not

Made by Peter Harlan (1898-1966), working between 1926 and 1950. Inspired by Dolmetsch to make reproduction recorders, his recorders were not based on authentic historical patterns. No reason to suppose
