Jöri Murk is a true inhabitant of the Grisons (mountainous canton in the East of Switzerland), who lived some time in a village in Grisons working as a teacher. There he learned to appreciate to spend his leisure time supporting the community and be culturally active. He remained faithful to this idea until today.

When he came to Zurich over thirty years ago (1968) in order to study Philosophy, Psychology and Education at the University of Zurich (he completed his study as a certified teacher for mentally handicapped children), he missed the cultural activities from his homeland in his evening leisure time.

At the same time, he discovered his love for the panflute and devoted his leisure time to this instrument, which he later developed into recreational activities for adults, as he was used from his homeland.

At that time there was far and wide nobody who could give him any information about the panflute. After intensive search, he was able to make contact to the Rumanian Grandmaster, Gheorghe Zamfir, who introduced him in the following four years into the secrets of constructing panflutes.

At that time there was far and wide nobody who could give him any information about the panflute.
