Shakuhachi Testimonial from Rodrigo Rodriguez

Perry Yung Shakuhachi Image“I highly recommend the work of Perry Yung to my students and friends. I am impressed about the knowledge and skill. It’s evident we are living in a very globalized world cultures, and you can find the best Shakuhachi making service outside from Japan.
Thank you Perry”
- Rodrigo Rodriguez
I learn the most from musicians who are dedicated to the music, both new and traditional, at the highest level. What you need from your instrument pushes me to understand what the shakuhachi must do now, and in the future. A deep bow my friend. - Perry

RIP Ronnie Seldin

Perry Yung Shakuhachi Image
A Great Shakuhachi teacher passed away on May 30, 2017. He was 69 years-old. Ronnie Seldin was one of my first shakuhachi teachers. He was incredibly supportive of my shakuhachi making and over the years he sent many people to me for affordable flutes and repairs. I have been playing the shakuhachi for Ronnie everyday..
Here is a Go Fund Me campaign to support his family.

Making New Music with Shakuhachi

Perry Yung Shakuhachi Image
Working on new music with shakuhachi and other instruments the past week with author choreographer Muna Tseng at the Baryshnikov Arts Center here in New York City. What an amazing experience creating art from personal history. Muna is telling the story of her paternal grandfather. I’m reminded of how empowering it is to tell you own story. You alone are responsible for the upholding the history, legacy and beauty of the your family’s history. What better way to do this than with art. Do not trust anyone else to get it right!. We had our first showing from the three week residency last night. I met Mikhail Baryshnikov himself afterwards at the social. I thanked hime for allowing us to create in his beautiful and inspiring space. He said, “This is your home.”
