Hi Folks, I am so happy to announce JAPANESE MUSIC IN THE HUDSON VALLEY: A SPRING SHAKUHACHI WEEKEND
With Ralph Samuelson and Yoko Hiraoka
May 28-29, 2016

I get a lot of emails form people telling me there are no teachers near them. My advice has always been to attend a shakuhachi camp or festival once a year. This will be one of the best things you can do for your shakuhachi practice. You will get incredible tutelage that will last not just a year, but a lifetime.

Lots happening these days and as always, very little time for my office hours. I have some authentic, restored Japanese shakuhachi available but you need to contact me as I can’t update my shop page due to the fact that they sell before I can put them up.

Here’s a nice video of a repair I did for the wonderful shakuhachi player Rodrigo Rodriguez, give it a listen!

Showing off our flutes!

A big thank you to all who came to the shakuhachi making and playing workshop at the Fire Lotus Temple (Zen Center of New York). It was such an amazing experience for me. Seeing everyone make and play their own flute was magical to say the least. This participant on my Facebook feed said it best, “One of the most fascinating and satisfying artistic, spiritual, historic experiences I’ve ever had.” The next one will be with the San Francisco Zen Center at Tassajara, Carmel, CA June 25 - 27. Check at their calendar of events for the Shakuhachi Crafting and Playing workshop - http://sfzc.org/calendar

Also, some of you may be interested in my shakuhachi making and playing workshop at Fire Lotus Temple, the Brooklyn branch of Zen Mountain Monastery.
