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.

2016, a great year for shakuhachi making and playing!

From the shakuhachi making and playing workshop at the Zen Center of New York Jan, 2016

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!
