Greg Pattillo's Beatboxing Flute

Updated on April 6, 2013

Greg Patillo: The flute has never been so cool!

Greg Pattillo amazes street audiences young and old with his beatboxing flute.  His music is more then you've heard from any flute before.  With just a flute in hand, he plays song you know in a way you have never heard. Beatboxing has become very popular recently, but to be good at it, WHILE playing the flute is extraordinary.  As in everything, I am sure others will copy his methods and do so quite successfully, but remember...Greg Pattillo has single-handedly expanded the potential of a flutist. He has single handedly made the flute cool again.

      Greg is amazingly skilled, both as a flautist and beatboxer - the combination works incredibly well!
