Marathon ISD Native American Flute Ensemble


The use of the Flute in the cultures of the Indigenous North American Peoples can be traced back at least 2,500 years through oral traditions and ancient photographs. The Marathon ISD Native American Flute Ensemble is the first school music program of its kind in the West Texas area. The ensemble performs traditional Native American Flute music that has been arranged using Orff and Kodaly methods by combining the flute with other percussion instruments like drums, shakers, and xylophones.
